Two months ago, Vince McMahon retired as Chairman and CEO of WWE after his hush money scandal was made public. Then, Stephanie McMahon and WWE president Nick Khan were appointed as Co-CEOs of WWE. Also, Triple H was appointed as head of WWE creative, a position was previously held by Vince McMahon.
The US Sun reported that the company is planning to honor Vince McMahon at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, which takes place before WrestleMania. The report also stated that it will lead him to appear at WrestleMania.
Vince may not be completely done with the WWE. There are discussions about how to pay tribute to his achievements of turning the small town wrestling biz into a global business venture. Now at this moment in time the suggestion of any kind of ‘celebration’ seems impossible and would spark potential backlash.
However, an acknowledgement of his contributions remains an active discussion among the creative team. Obviously Vince will not wrestle again, but having an invitation to Wrestlemania could be a possibility. One discussion is whether it is too soon for him to be honoured at the WWE Hall Of Fame event, the night before Wrestlemania. Automatically that honor would mean he would walk on stage in front of LA fans next April.
WWE WrestleMania 39 premium live event is scheduled to take place as a two-night event at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on Saturday, April 1st and Sunday, April 2nd of 2023.
