Vince McMahon’s Return Makes Some WWE Superstars Happy

A new report has revealed that there are some WWE superstars that are happy to have Vince McMahon back in the mix.

It was in July 2022 when Vince McMahon retired from WWE as the company’s CEO & Chairman. After running the company for 40 years, he was ousted due to several hush-money payments that he did to women that he was involved with.

When Vince retired from his spot running WWE, his son-in-law Paul “Triple H” Levesque took over the WWE Chief Content Officer that’s also in charge of signing talent.

To start 2023, Vince was back in the mix as the Executive Chairman. While Vince has tweaked some things creatively since coming back and since Endeavor acquired WWE, it mostly remains a Triple H show since he’s running the creative team.

Veteran wrestling journalist Wade Keller of the Pro Wrestling Torch said on the PWTorch VIP Audio show that two current WWE superstars he talked to support Vince being back involved in the creative process to whatever degree he’s involved in.

“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.”

Keller would continue by mentioning a difference in Vince McMahon and Triple H booking the show.

“One person I asked said they think that Vince McMahon is more focused on building strong babyfaces and Paul Levesque has more of a focus, and an interest, in building heels.”

No names were given about what wrestlers supported Vince being back in the mix.
