In a sign that Vince McMahon is stepping a bit away from his job as the CEO of WWE, Finn Balor revealed that he finally got a chance to meet the boss at the NXT live event that took place during Wrestlemania weekend. In the past, McMahon personally meets with every wrestler that he signs to a contract. This means that Triple H was the one that did the meeting and the negotiations. The changing of the guard is definitely happening.

Since the company badly wanted to bring him on board, there were several stipulations that Sting required from WWE.

As many of you already know, two matches have been moved from the main Wrestlemania card and placed on the kickoff show. The reason for that is because management has been planning extravagant entrances for Rusev, Undertaker, Bray Wyatt and Triple H. While his name is not on the list, you can more than likely expect something pretty spectacular for Sting, as this is his actual in ring debut for WWE.

You can rule out at least one potential second generation wrestler joining WWE. Goldberg told TMZ during an interview that he would never allow his son to work for the company. He stated that he purchase a wrestling promotion and have his son work there than to ever allow him to work in a company ran by Vince McMahon and Triple H.
