Many people were shocked to learn that Vince McMahon had formally resigned from his positions as WWE’s CEO, Chairman of the Board, and head of creative.
WWE Smackdown Walkout
ccording to reports, he particularly upset Brock Lesnar. Six-time world champion and two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T commented on the “Hall of Fame podcast” on reports that Brock Lesnar left “Friday Night Smackdown” on July 22 after learning that Vince would no longer be in command. “I’m not sure if that was a true story or not, but I have no doubt that Brock was one of those men that needed a break because he was feeling upset and may have said, “Let me leave for a minute. Yes, I see that. The news of Vince’s retirement, which he announced through Twitter on Friday, July 22nd, inevitably dominated the news throughout the weekend. Following allegations that hush money payments were made to women he had relationships with using WWE business monies, this declaration was made. Less than two months ago, Vince resigned as WWE’s first-ever CEO and chairman of the board, appointing his daughter, Stephanie McMahon, as interim CEO.
After Vince’s retirement
As Stephanie and Nick Khan became official leadership of WWE upon Vince’s retirement, new power also arrived. For the foreseeable future, Triple H, Stephanie’s husband, will serve as the organization’s head of creativity. Although it was unclear if Lesnar would be making a comeback, he did make an appearance after “SmackDown” with The Usos after their six-man tag team battle against Riddle and the Street Profits. Lesnar assaulted Theory with Theory’s own Money in the Bank briefcase following the contest, then he followed that up with an F5 from “The Beast Incarnate.” The Undisputed WWE Universal Championship will be up for grabs when Lesnar and the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns square off in the SummerSlam main event on July 30. This will be their first Last Man Standing match against one another.
