Vince McMahon Could Push For Royal Rumble Spot Says WWE Hall Of Famer

Vince McMahon WWE Royal Rumble

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T thinks Vince McMahon could well push for a spot in the men’s Royal Rumble but doesn’t actually expect to see him compete.

Vince McMahon infamously won the only Royal Rumble match he ever entered in 1999 as he had the help of The Corporation to overcome Stone Cold Steve Austin and claim victory. However 25 years later and with McMahon now at 78 years old, could the ousted WWE boss really try and make a comeback?

Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T explained why he thinks, despite Vince McMahon undergoing recent surgery, he could still try and get a Rumble spot:

Vince just came off a surgery. Spinal surgery not too long ago. I don’t think Vince is going to be in the Royal Rumble [laughs]. I’ll tell you right now, I wouldn’t put it past him, trying to get in.

I’m serious. I’m dead serious. If anybody would try to pull something off like that, it would be Vince McMahon, but I do not think you’re going to see Vince in the Royal Rumble here in 2024.

Vince McMahon On The Outs In WWE

Many people believed that the Endeavor takeover of WWE would embolden McMahon’s power in the company but that has not been the case. McMahon is the Executive Chairman of the TKO Group but he has no say in the day-to-day running of WWE with Nick Khan overseeing business decisions and Triple H running the wrestling side of the operation.

Vince McMahon had his final match at WrestleMania 38 when he picked up an unlikely win over Pat McAfee. McMahon then took what is likely to be the final Stunner of his career from his old rival Stone Cold Steve Austin.

A documentary on Vince McMahon is believed to be coming very soon to Netflix as it covers the highs and lows of his life and career.
