WWE’s merger with the UFC will change a lot about the company, and Superstars are witnessing a new era in the company. That being said, it isn’t all bad within WWE creative as the landscape continues shifting.
Vince McMahon was pretty hands-off when it comes to the 2023 WWE Draft. That being said, he is still the man in charge and can force changes whenever he wants.
During the PW Torch audio show, Wade Keller spoke about how WWE Superstars are viewing this current wave in creative change. It was said that some are receptive of Vince McMahon being around, as Triple H continues to focus on building heels.
“The wrestlers who are more sympathetic or okay with or even somewhat happy with Vince returning — the wrestlers I talked to directly like Vince better but they also indicated [that] they are not alone [and] that there are people who are happy Vince is back. It’s natural that some wrestlers would think that they were getting a better push under Vince McMahon than Paul Levesque because every booker is gonna have their favorites that they like a little more than others and those people get a boost and others will be like, hey, I think I was in a better position under Vince. Some of it is just that. It’s purely based on self-interest that they were getting a better push.”
WWE is going through a lot of changes, but that’s nothing new. Vince McMahon and Triple H’s new arrangement with WWE creative was certainly a big step for the company as well. Only time will tell how this period of WWE history will be remembered in a couple of decades, but we are certainly paying close attention to things.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon has had no say in the 2023 Draft at that time. Then again, it’s still his company, so Mr. McMahon could always swoop in whenever he wants and switch things up. We also exclusively reported that the 2023 WWE Draft had no bearing on Vince McMahon’s return to the company, or vice versa.
