Brandon Thurston On Vince McMahon’s Return To The WWE Board Of Directors



Speaking recently to Busted Open Radio, Wrestlenomics’ Brandon Thurston offered his opinion on what Vince McMahon’s return to the WWE Board could mean.

Thurston explained what gave Vince the leverage to oust sitting board members. He also contemplated what the board’s reaction might be in the future.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

How Vince forced out sitting board members: “Most importantly, WWE can’t make a TV rights deal without his approval. That’s been made explicit. WWE can’t sell the company without his approval. That’s been made explicit. That’s his big leverage [the TV rights deal]. ‘You can’t make a deal, you can’t make a TV deal without me,’ and that is the most important piece of their business, their U.S. live rights deal, which I would expect to be finalized in the spring based on previous negotiations.”

How the board might ‘retaliate’: “It’s important to note, too, in the letter that the Board wrote to Vince, which is disclosed now, that they allude to other things that they’ve learned of that are non-public that would paint him in a bad light. Something to that effect.”
