He really is gone. Last month, Vince McMahon officially retired from WWE in one of the biggest stories in wrestling history. McMahon led the company for the better part of forty years and has been the driving force behind everything WWE has done. Such a change is going to take some time to get used to, but now another McMahon related change has taken place behind the scenes.
According to PWInsider.com, McMahon’s name has been removed from the company’s internal roster. McMahon had been listed along with names such as John Cena and the Bella Twins, who were not part of the active roster but could appear on any show. This is the latest step to getting rid of McMahon’s presence in WWE, after the backstage references to his name were removed last week.
Opinion: This is the new reality that WWE is facing and it is almost hard to believe that McMahon is being erased so fast. I know he didn’t leave on the best of terms, but to get rid of so many things that he has done and been associated with is hard to fathom. McMahon’s name is never going to be forgotten in WWE, but it is hard to get my head around so many things changing so fast.
What do you think of the change? Will McMahon ever appear on WWE TV again? Let us know in the comments below.
