Vince McMahon Laying Low At Television Events, WWE Merchandise Sales, Papa Shango



vince-mcmahon2

- At WWE’s weekly Raw events, Vince McMahon generally only meets with producers and other officials, with most talent only encountering him when they head to the curtain. Furthermore, he does not attend approximately half of the SmackDown tapings because he feels it necessary that Paul “Triple H” Levesque gain experience in taking charge of shows because he will ultimately be the leader of the company.

When Levesque is in charge of events, the atmosphere is described as being more chaotic. It is said that when disagreements or problems arise, there is nobody in the Vince role of putting his foot down and saying, “This is how it’s going to be done.”

– WWE merchandise sales has been described as “haves” and “have nots.” A few talents are reportedly making “great money,” with all others not faring too well.

– During a recent interview, Charles Wright revealed that WWE had plans for him to return as grittier version of Papa Shango in 1997, but the idea was ultimately shelved due the introduction of another dark, supernatural character in Kane. In response to feedback on Twitter, Wright said Jerry Lawler assisted him with the character’s look and that he may post online a Polaroid photo that was taken then if he can find it.
