WWE took part in their usual quarterly medial call earlier today and the company revealed several interesting details concerning their future. For instance, it was recently reported that Vince McMahon has given Triple H complete control of the 205 Live brand. The Wrestling Observer later reported that Vince McMahon will be stepping aside from some of his creative duties with WWE in order to focus on the relaunch of the XFL in 2020, despite the fact that McMahon claimed otherwise during the initial XFL press release. The issue concerning Vince McMahon possibly handing down creative control to Triple H was addressed by the Chairman during the recent media call.
When asked about possibly stepping down soon during the call, McMahon doubled down on his promise to remain heavily involved with WWE while also continuing to resurrect the XFL. McMahon said that there will be absolutely no changes made to his current role in WWE, and he also said that a separate team is currently working on the relaunch of the XFL. Vince McMahon will likely remain Chairman of WWE as the years go by, but reports of Triple H possibly gaining more control from McMahon in the future still continue to pour in. The Observer has even reported that Triple H is in the process of hiring executives to fill management spots in NXT and for WWE’s main roster. Stay tuned for new updates on this story.
Shinsuke Nakamura became one of the biggest stars in wrestling during his time in Japan, but he has arguably become just as successful in the United States in recent years. He just made history by winning the Royal Rumble match, and he will now challenge the WWE Champion to a match at WrestleMania in April. For those interested in his story before coming to WWE, Viz Media recently confirmed that they will be re-releasing Nakamura’s 2014 autobiography “King of Strong Style: 1980-2014″ in English for the very first time ever. It appears as though digital and hard-copies of Nakamura’s life story will be available for purchase online and in stores later this summer.
