It’s a new way to go. According to a report from Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, the 2023 Royal Rumble event was said to have been the “easiest” that it’s has been in a long time, with regard to putting the show together. This is due to the lack of creative involvement from Vince McMahon.
This year’s Royal Rumble was the first under Triple H and the report states that there was a good feeling about the show in the end, including the morale among talent. Furthermore, it was said that from a day-to-day and weekly basis, the atmosphere is much more laid back. One of the only reminders of Vince’s influence remains the “Vince’s office” directional sign that hasn’t been changed since he left but points to a section of the backstage area that is completely different.
Vince has been notorious for changing things at the last minute and creating a sense of chaos and unease right before a show goes on the air. The report further states that the process of the Rumble itself was the easiest in a long time without Vince McMahon at the helm and that there were way less last minute changes.
This doesn’t come as a surprise, but it’s nice to read. Ever since Triple H took control last year, there is something different about the product in a good way. An influx of returning talent, along with the more natural each show feels, has provided an atmosphere, that is better for the performers, and much more enjoyable for the audience.
