Here he comes again. There have been a lot of changes taking place in the WWE over the last year and a half and several of them have not been the most well received. A lot of those problems have seemed to stem from new WWE President Nick Khan, who has seemed intent on cutting costs anywhere he can. Khan making moves is quite the event, and now we might be seeing something else soon.

According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, Khan was backstage at this week’s SmackDown, though it is not clear why he was present at the show. Khan appearing at television events is not a normal occurrence. Khan was working with Vince McMahon and the company’s higher ups throughout the day. It is not known if he will be around at television more frequently or if this was a one off event.

Things happen backstage at WWE events. Check out some of the more infamous moments:

Embarrassing backstage encounters: WWE Top 10, Jan. 19, 2019

Opinion: I’m not sure what this means for WWE (if anything) but it is quite the event when Khan does anything these days. He has shaken up WWE in a big way, if nothing else due to the amount of cuts he has been involved with over the last several months. Khan’s involvement may or may not be the best thing for WWE, depending on your take, but it has certainly been eventful.

What do you think of Khan’s tenure with WWE? Will there be more cuts this year? Let us know in the comments below.
