In a recent inteview with The Connecticut Post, Vince McMahon talked about his TV character being phased out of WWE TV.
“We need to move on, you know?” McMahon said. “It’s important that we develop new characters and my character seems to eat up a lot of time on the show. We need to have these fresh young faces.”
WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman then said, “It was Vince’s intention to write himself out, and there are no plans for him to return to the ring. But since it’s WWE, you never know.”
