A new report has shed light on the differences in WWE since Vince McMahon retired, with one department noted to have undergone a “night and day” change.
The wrestling world was stunned in July when Vince McMahon announced that he was to retire from his role as WWE Chairman and CEO after forty years at the helm of the company. The move came amid ongoing investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct and hush money payments that had been directed at McMahon.
Since then Stephanie McMahon has taken over as WWE Chairwoman while she also shares CEO duties with company President, Nick Khan. Triple H is now in charge of the creative direction as well as the talent relations department in WWE, meaning he is in charge of what fans see on shows.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider has indicated some of the changes that have already taken place under the new regime saying that the previous atmosphere of “walking on eggshells” has been replaced with one of hope and pride.
The report adds that WWE’s production has seen a “massively night and day” change with nobody yelling at either the production truck or the on-screen announcers – something that Vince McMahon had been noted for over the years.
Announcers, camera operators, producers, and directors are said to have been very happy over the last several weeks with one source quoted as saying that people are now “allowed to feel like it’s fun to work here.”
The report concludes by saying that there were several people who were looking to leave the company a few months ago who are now reconsidering those decisions with the new regime making a huge difference in their day-to-day working lives.
