Vince McMahon, despite recent controversies, still appeared live on screen last night on SmackDown.
He didn’t say much on screen, but was apparently very hands-on backstage during the show. He was also said to be in a very good mood. Fightful select was first to report and we have the full transcript from select which reads:
In the day that followed, numerous WWE talent at Smackdown reached out to Fightful to offer detail on Vince McMahon’s demeanor at the show. One Smackdown talent said they were expecting an eventful day, but noted that nobody knew what Vince McMahon was going to say. However, he “wasn’t selling” the fact that he was being investigated, and was particularly jovial. In addition, the person said that the show was a lot more relaxed than usual by the time it kicked off, with another adding that Vince was “happy” and it was cool to see considering that many expected a tense atmosphere. it was also said that Vince McMahon was very hands on Friday, even more than usual. One longtime staff member said they thought that was McMahon’s way of establishing that he’s still running the show. “He’s basically showing through his promo that he handles what’s in front of him and he’s not running” from it, another talent said.– Fightful Select
Very interesting to hear about Vince backstage. It was surprising that he was even on screen, let alone in a good mood as well. Full credit to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful select for the report.
