Since his sexual misconduct and allegations were brought forward and he was forced to retire from the WWE, Vince McMahon stepped down from his duties as WWE’s CEO, Chairman and Head of Creative, but fans and a number of former WWE talents are still wondering if the former WWE CEO is still running the WWE from the shadows or if he’s still pulling some strings. Even a few former WWE officials have wondered if Vince is really retired from the company despite there being significant changes to the product as well as a number of released and former stars being brought back.
Several sources have noted that Vince is really gone from WWE, but one person refuses to believe that the former WWE Chairman and CEO is truly gone from the company and that is none other than former WWE announcer Tony Chimel. Chimel appeared on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, where he noted that it’s possible Vince McMahon is retired, but he refuses to believed he no longer has some sort of an input in the company. Tony Chimel also believes that Vince still talks business with Stephanie and Triple H.
This is what Tony Chimel said:
“I do not see Vince [McMahon] sitting on a beach in Florida and not doing anything. He can be retired, that’s fine. I refuse to believe that he’s not having any input in anything in that company and it’d be interesting to see if he’s still on the payroll or he got a severance package or what goes on with that when you become owner of the company. Is he not now owner? Does he not own any stock? Does he have nothing to do with the company? Does he not talk about business to Steph, to Shane, to Hunter [Triple H] or anybody… I don’t know about that.”
