WWE saw a lot of changes over the past year. Vince McMahon retired and returned to reclaim his seat in control. Then he helped usher in a merger with the UFC, one that saw him retain his power in a big way. He’s not finished flexing that power, either.
We previously reported that Vince McMahon spoke at the WWE employee meeting today at the company’s HQ. During that speech, Vince McMahon said he believes that the company became “stagnated” before he returned to power.
Sean Sapp posted on X to reveal that Vince McMahon caused a few people within the company to roll their eyes after that comment about being stagnated. That was quite a statement, and it was certainly taken a certain type of way.
Fightful Select has heard from several people in WWE who eyerolled Vince McMahon’s comments about WWE plateauing and needing to do the merger to take the company to the next level.
This caused a lot of reaffirmation in beliefs that Vince wanted a deal so he could return.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon started back with WWE creative a week after his spinal surgery. He wasn’t gone for very long at all, but he sure has a lot to say about things now.
