Hulk Hogan

McMahon denies Hogan loss

When asked about what the loss of Hulk Hogan meant to WWE, Vince McMahon opted to downplay the situation by stating that it has no material effect on them. This comes on the heel of the company losing at least $50 million in stock because of his departure. Hogan also moved a good amount of merchandise and was a proven draw at live events, especially in the international market.

Eric Bischoff

Kliq backstage politics

Eric Bischoff conveyed a rather interesting story during a recent interview. He stated that Vince McMahon once had to hop on his private jet and fly to a live event because members of the Kliq refused to lose their matches for the evening. The booking team were not able to resolve the situation, so the SEO had no choice but to go out there himself.

Bischoff defends McMahon

While some fans are emotionally acting out against WWE for being so quick to fire Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, who happens to be a good friend of Hogan, defended Vince McMahon for his decision. He mentioned that a publicly traded company has to be sensitive towards their fans, investors, advertisers, board members, mainstream media and others. It was a necessary move to make.

Scott Steiner

Steiner on Hogan controversy

Since the two of them have not been able to get along very well over the past couple of years, it should come as no surprise that Scott Steiner would be jumping all over the Hulk Hogan controversy. The former world heavyweight champion recommended that Hogan shoot himself to death. Steiner also feels that Hogan tried to throw Vince McMahon under the bus.

Hogan upset with McMahon

Publicly, Hulk Hogan is trying to say all of the right things because his reputation has taken quite a pounding since racist comments that he said were released to the public. Privately, however, it is being said that Hogan is absolutely furious with Vince McMahon for being a bit hypocritical. Years ago, McMahon used the same racial term during a televised segment.

Vince McMahon skipping Smackdown

Just to give you an idea of how important the company views the Tough Enough series, Vince McMahon has started to skip out on the Smackdown taping each week so that he can fly down to Florida to be on the set of the reality television show. For years, the CEO would always be on set to direct things, so this is quite the change in mentality.

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins as a heel

Rumors are floating around right now that there is a major difference of opinions backstage on how Seth Rollins should be booked as a heel champion. Triple H wants to keep going the old school route by having Rollins be a cowardly champion, much like how Ric Flair used to be. Vince McMahon, however, wants Rollins to be booked as a stronger champion with more credibility with the fans.

Smackdown ratings tank

Generally, when you are doing the final week of promoting a pay per view, the interest level in the product increases. That is not the case with the latest episode of Smackdown. It received the lowest amount of viewers for a non holiday in years. Hopefully, this prompts Vince McMahon to make some changes with how the creative department handles things.
