On Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, just as WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon was set to fire John Cena, Triple H’s music hit and the WWE legend made a surprise return to television. Triple H dropped a bombshell – that WWE’s Board of Directors had voted that despite everything he’s done to turn WWE into the global phenomenon that it is today, he is being relieved of his day-to-day operations.
Vince McMahon’s duties will now be handled by Triple H himself. The father and son-in laws had an emotional moment, with both men shedding tears as the show went off the air to “Thank You, Vince” chants from the crowd. We’ll be having more on this story in the coming hours and days. Stay tuned.
