Despite the jokes about his appearance, McMahon’s announcement created ripples in the wrestling community.
Along with the sale, he also revealed he would be involved in the company’s creative direction “on a higher level,” but not “in the weeds.” This revelation comes after he returned to his executive position after stepping down in July 2022 amidst sexual misconduct accusations.
