At the end of Monday’s episode of RAW, we saw Triple H return to television and announce that he would be taking over Vince McMahon’s duties behind the scenes, effectively relieving Vince of his day-to-day duties.
Former WWE star Sean Waltman went on Twitter following RAW and said that Vince McMahon really is stepping down from his job as Chairman and CEO:
“The text [Triple H] sent me today makes much more sense now. That was the real deal, that last 5 or however many minutes.”
Waltman also noted that WWE should be “careful that this doesn’t really affect the stock price.”
WWE’s stock is already down over 30% this year.
