WWE was acquired by Endeavor a few months back and since then a lot of significant changes have taken place following the merger with UFC to form TKO. Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel has kept Triple H in charge of the company’s creative and gave him total control without the involvement of Vince McMahon and any influence from the former WWE Chairman to make last-minute changes as he has done in the past.
It was reported about a month ago that McMahon sold $700 million in TKO stock and $8.4 million of the shares that represented nearly 25% of his holdings in the company and this led to people wondering if McMahon’s future with WWE was in jeopardy, but Vince did note he has no plans to stop working for the company and he still wields great power, although he did make a very rare appearance at the brand-new WWE HQ this week.
According to PWInsider.com, Vince McMahon appeared at the WWE’s annual holiday party this week, which is something he hasn’t done in the past. It was also mentioned on the report that McMahon went around the holiday party talking with a number of employees and was described as approachable and friendly. There was no WWE Superstars in attendance at the party as this was said to be a party exclusively for employees, but there would usually be about 4-6 Superstars talking with employees.
