Report: More On HHH/Vince, Punk/Cena Creative Control



The word backstage in WWE is that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon may have passed the torch to HHH on television, but behind the scenes “Vince McMahon is the end-all, be-all, and no one is in doubt of that fact,” according to a top source in production.

“HHH has been sitting under the learning tree, as he calls it,” our source told us this weekend, “but Vince still goes through every promo, every finish, every storyline on the show. Nothing airs without his permission or blessing. Nothing.”

Recent internet reports suggest CM Punk has some freedom in his promos, and our source addressed that, too. “Punk and John Cena both have earned Vince’s trust in keeping their improv moments to be storyline-oriented, so Vince has given them some leeway on their promos as they head into the SummerSlam main event, but it’s just like with the announcers, Vince is in total control.”
