WWE recently agreed to a merge with UFC. Previously it was expected that Vince’s return was primarily due to selling of the company and he wouldn’t get involved in the creative. But its seems like plans have changed after selling the company to Endeavor.
Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio is reporting that Vince was running tonight’s RAW and noted that Vince is back in creative
“He was running TV tonight, he’s back. It’s what it was. It will be what it was before. And if people think that was bad, it will be bad. And that’s just the way it is. And the TV show was changed when Vince got there and it was changing as the show was going on. That was tonight and that will be what it is going forward. Ari Emanuel is not going to be involved in the wrestling, Vince is running the company, Nick Khan will be number 2 and Paul Levesque will be Head of Creative so he’s going to be doing the busywork and all that stuff. Vince is going to have the final say in everything when it comes to that, and even with Ari Emanuel being number 1, Ari said in the interview that was released on CNBC Today that if there’s a disagreement and Vince doesn’t want something on the wrestling side, it’s not gonna get done. They wanted Vince, and there you go. That’s the big picture stuff.”(H/T: WrestlePurists)
