Vince McMahon

Former WWE Official Doubts If Vince McMahon Is Truly Retired 

Since Vince McMahon declared his retirement from the WWE, current and previous wrestlers have been dealing with the fallout from their controversial former boss resigning from his numerous high roles with the firm. With Vince resigning, his daughter Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan had also taken over as Co-CEOs of WWE.

Triple H has begun taking over as Head of WWE Creative and it has managed to make noticeable changes to the firm. Such as reviving several talents who were let go under Vince’s guard, such as Karrion Kross this past Weekend on SmackDown. The headlines of Vince McMahon’s retirement arrived after it was revealed that there had been investigations into hush money payments made by Vince to female employees totaling millions of dollars.

The payouts were allegedly made to keep the women from accusing Vince McMahon & former Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis of harassment, violence, and misbehaviour. Some speculated that the former Chairman would continue to run the WWE from behind the scenes, but that is not the case, according to multiple sources.

Mike Chioda

Even though the on-screen WWE product appears to be changing, former WWE referee Mike Chioda believes Vince still has a say in what’s going on. Would you really believe Vince McMahon has retired? Chioda stated this in the most recent episode of the Monday Mailbag talk show. He could be sitting home on a mobile or FaceTime on a smartphone on a Zoom conversation, but he’ll be Zooming for TV every day.

Chioda was lately seen refereeing the finals of the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament on All Elite Wrestling, as well as Ric Flair’s Last Match. With Triple H now in control of WWE, Chioda discussed whether or not he plans to return to the company where he spent 31 years. Chioda stated, Never say never, I’d love to go do something for WWE.

Chioda has previously explained having a great connection with Triple H, even claiming that The Game mentioned a retirement program with the 30-year ref. Sadly for Chioda, his WWE career ended in April 2020, and he lately referred to refereeing Flair’s final game as his final chapter.
