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.

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.

In a sign of how much stock the company is putting into Tough Enough, Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn were down in Florida to oversee the show instead of running Monday Night Raw like they routinely do. That meant that Triple H was left in charge of the episode. Most fans did not even notice the difference, so HHH proved that he can stick to the formula really well.

Apparently, Vince McMahon is reportedly not too pleased with how things ended when Steve Austin interviewed Paul Heyman on his podcast show.

Apparently, there are a ton of wrestling fans who think that they have what it takes to become a star in WWE. The company has now revealed that they have received audition tapes from 113 different countries. Some of the videos have been uploaded to YouTube, and they have already received more than 2 million views collectively. That should please Vince McMahon quite a bit because he can tout those numbers during the next conference call.

While his vision is being questioned by the internet wrestling community, one thing that Vince McMahon can definitely see clearly is the fact that fan interest in his product has sunk to the lowest point that it has been at since 2015 started. The latest episode of Monday Night Raw drew the least amount of viewers since the final episode of 2014. Hopefully, something like this will encourage WWE to try new things that might draw back their fans.

The internet wrestling community has been going crazy with speculations after reports surfaced that Vince McMahon was going blind.

Since the promotion is quite effective in inflating the number of subscribers, the WWE Network will be available for free in May. This is the first time that management has opted to do it in consecutive months (April was free as well). That means that fans will be able to watch Payback for free. Vince McMahon is hoping that the move will enable them to finally break the 1.5 million mark, which would then be flaunted at potential investors.

From the moment that Dixie Carter revealed the big secret meeting earlier today, fans have been speculating like crazy on what Steve Austin has planned. The belief is that the two of them discussed business, which means that the former world heavyweight champion might be heading to TNA. That would be a tremendous boost to the promotion to have a legend like him on board. It would also be a great way to stick it to Vince McMahon.

While a lot of fans worship the Undertaker for being loyal to WWE, Kevin Nash revealed in a recent interview that WCW was close to bringing him on board. Negotiations were going well, and Nash was doing a tremendous job at convincing the front office to give his friends big money. However, Vince McMahon came through at the last minute by offering Mark Calaway a huge guaranteed deal, something that he did not previously do.
