WWE saw Vince McMahon retire from the company due to a hush money scandal. It didn’t take him very long at all to make his return as Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors once again. Now, he is back in charge of WWE and doing as he pleases, despite Endeavor’s plan to merge WWE with the UFC.
Vince McMahon wasn’t able to make it to RAW this week in Seattle. In fact, a lot of Superstars had travel nightmares, but Mr. McMahon never intended on making the trip. Last week’s SmackDown did not see Mr. McMahon attend either, but that didn’t stop him from making changes to the show.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Vince McMahon changed a few “minor things” about this week’s show. One of those aspects included the wording that Superstars used in their promos.
We do know of some minor things on the show, including promo wordings, that were changed this week so the influence is there.
A lot of WWE fans were really worried when Vince McMahon took control again. He promised to only be involved in big creative decisions, but changing around wording in promos seems like micromanaging to us.
It will be very interesting to see if Vince McMahon shows up to SmackDown this week. He still the power to change around anything around that he wants to, because it is his show. The big question is how “in the weeds” Vince McMahon will get in the months to come, because he’s not leaving his position in WWE.
What’s your take on Vince McMahon returning to WWE? Do you think he just can’t help himself from changing creative? Sound off in the comments!
