Vince McMahon has been back with WWE since January, but speculation about his real role with the company won’t go away.
It was initially claimed that McMahon was back to help sell the company, and once that was achieved he admitted that he takes part in some of the bigger picture aspects of creative. While this admission sent shockwaves around social media, it was his appearance backstage on April 3rd at Raw where he effectively ran the show which led a number of WWE stars to fear what comes next.
Despite this appearance, McMahon has kept a relatively low profile and is reportedly content to make alterations to WWE programming remotely, although it’s unclear how significant these changes are.
Speaking in a new interview with Sporf, Ricochet was asked about McMahon and how his role intertwines with that of Triple H. The high-flying Raw star said McMahon is involved in “everything,” before heaping praise on Triple H.
“Vince is still involved and Vince is still talked to. He’s still someone that everyone looks to, especially with creative. So he’s got his fingers in everything too.
I think Triple H and everybody in creative is just trying to do the best they can in bringing out the best in who they have. They’re trying to work to everyone’s strengths. I think that’s something that Triple H has always done.
They want to grow the brand as much as possible. Whether it’s Raw or SmackDown or NXT. They’re trying to highlight the strengths of everybody. I think it’s been great so far.
Everybody sees the popularity of the brand now, so they just want to expand it as much as possible. I think what they’ve been doing recently with everybody has been great. Everybody’s been going out there and giving it their all.”
Vince McMahon Made Big Changes To WWE Raw
Vince McMahon was back in the news following the June 19th episode of Raw when it was reported that he’s made “drastic changes” to the opening segment of the show.
Seth Rollins had been due to host an open challenge for his World Heavyweight Championship, but he was instead attacked by Finn Balor. It was reported that this change came directly from McMahon who believed that the angle would add more heat to the feud between the pair ahead of their match at Money In The Bank.
