Vince McMahon, the WWE chairman, made his return to WWE on January 6, 2023, as the executive chairman of the board of directors. However, many people are questioning his intentions, including former WWE world champion Kevin Nash, who recently hinted at McMahon’s true motives on his Kliq This podcast.
Nash believes that McMahon is inflating the value of WWE so as not to sell the company. According to him, if the opportunity presents itself and the price is right, McMahon will do it. It’s like someone offering to buy your house for a lot more than it’s worth – you’d probably sell it too.
Currently, WWE’s value on the stock market is over 6 billion dollars. Some experts have suggested that McMahon wants to sell the company for $7 billion, while others say he’s aiming for 8 or 9 billion dollars – a value the company doesn’t currently have. This has led to a lot of speculation and talks internally about McMahon’s position.

Recently, a match between Omos and Brock Lesnar was confirmed for WrestleMania, and some WWE fans have speculated that McMahon ordered it. Some North American media outlets have even suggested that this could be true.
Despite WWE’s attempts to calm things down and reassure talent that the course they’re taking will remain unchanged, many people remain skeptical about McMahon’s intentions. Only time will tell what the future holds for WWE and its chairman.
