Someone has to be in charge. There are a lot of people with authority in WWE, but there are some who are much more powerful than others. At the end of the day, Vince McMahon is still the ultimate boss and always will be, but there are various people beneath him who are going to be listened to as well. However, the chain of command can get a little fuzzy, especially when something like this happens.

One of the most interesting developments of the current WWE structure is the rise of Triple H’s power. He has succeeded as the boss of NXT and is the likely heir apparent to McMahon and the company as a whole. That is quite the important place in the company power structure and he is going to be running some things even as McMahon is around. But what happens after the two of them?

According to Post Wrestling, neither McMahon or Triple H were present at Tables, Ladders And Chairs on Sunday night. There is no word on why neither of them were there, but they were checking in with those in charge of running the show. Instead of McMahon or Triple H, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Executive Directors Paul Heyman and Bruce Prichard ran their respective show’s matches.

The show was running well. Check out some of the bigger matches:

Opinion: I’m not sure what this means for WWE going forward. While it’s a good sign that there are people who can take over some of the responsibilities if Triple H and McMahon are gone, it doesn’t mean as much if the regular bosses are still really in charge of the whole thing. Maybe things can get a little looser later on, but for now, the company is still McMahon’s and that isn’t changing anytime soon.
