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 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.
According to Sports Illustrated, sources in WWE have told them that McMahon has no plans to leave the company and he just needed to have his money liquidated, hence the reason he sold majority of his TKO stock. There’s no word yet on why McMahon needed the money, but the same sources noted that Vince has no plans to stop working for the WWE and he still wields great power in the company.
The report also mentions that Vince still has a great working relationship with the Endeavor CEO even after the decision was made for Triple H to be in charge of creative without interference from him.
