Vince McMahon at WWE ‘Monday Night Raw’ with John Cena back


Vince McMahon’s step-by-step return to the fabric of WWE seems to have taken the next step.

According to multiple reports, the company’s executive chairman is backstage for “Monday Night Raw” at TD Garden on Monday night.

It would be McMahon’s first known appearance on a WWE television taping since his short-lived retirement last July amid a sexual harassment scandal.

WWE did not immediately return a request for comment.

His son-in-law, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, has been WWE’s head of creative ever since.

McMahon, 77, who’s in Boston makes sense since John Cena, who the WWE boss is close to, will appear on the show.

Cena attended McMahon’s birthday in August.

McMahon, WWE’s controlling voting stockholder, made his official return in January as he worked his way back on the board of directors in an executive role to lead the company as it pursues a potential sale with its lucrative media rights deal set to close in 2024 expired.

Vince McMahon was reported to be backstage at “Monday Night Raw” in Boston during a 2010 show.

Reportedly looking to sell for $9 billion.

McMahon retired more than five months after a Washington Post story revealed that the WWE board was investigating hush money payments to multiple women who alleged he committed sexual misconduct between 2006 and 2022.

WWE said in an SEC filing that the investigation revealed $14.5 million in “unrecorded expenses.”

One of the women, a former wrestler, had alleged in 2018 that McMahon forced her into oral sex years ago.

McMahon’s January return brought about other changes at the top of the WWE hierarchy as his daughter Stephane McMahon left the company and her role as co-CEO.

Nick Khan is currently WWE’s sole CEO and Levesque has remained head of creative and talent relations and his work has been widely acclaimed.

Rumors have it that McMahon has come up with the idea for a Brock Lesnar vs. Omos match pushed through at this year’s WrestleMania.

Khan said during a January appearance on the “Bill Simmons Podcast” that he hadn’t foreseen McMahon returning to WWE TV any time soon, but that could change “in a few months”.
