WWE has confirmed that Vince McMahon will be making an appearance on the 17th June 2022 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
There has been plenty of controversy over recent days surrounding Vince McMahon, which has led to him temporarily stepping away from his position as Chairman of WWE.
It has been confirmed that Stephanie McMahon will step in to the role on an interim basis, whilst her father is investigated over allegations of misconduct. In an official statement on the investigation, Vince McMahon confirmed that he is cooperating fully with this investigation and will accept the outcome.
I have pledged my complete cooperation to the investigation by the Special Committee, and I will do everything possible to support the investigation. I have also pledged to accept the findings and outcome of the investigation, whatever they are.
However, in a new revelation WWE have now announced that on the same day as stepping away from his senior position, McMahon will make an appearance on Friday Night SmackDown.
