Report: More Long-Term Storytelling Expected Within WWE Following Vince McMahon Departure
More long-term feuds in WWE
WWE has been the subject of upheaval over the last week following Vince McMahon's retirement on July 22 and the 76-year-old has been replaced as CEO by Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan, who are sharing the role's responsibilities. Triple H has also seen his standing in WWE rise and he is now the head of creative.
Elements of Vince McMahon's booking of WWE have been criticised in recent years but they are expected to be addressed by the company's new leadership.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE programming is expected to feature more long-term storylines, something that has largely been absent from the main roster due to Vince McMahon constantly ripping up the script for Raw or SmackDown and rewriting the shows at the last minute.
There is expected to be greater investment in younger talent and far less 50/50 booking on WWE TV as well.
Furthermore, it is believed within the company that Triple H is more of a proponent of women's wrestling than Vince McMahon stemming from his time in NXT. If this will translate to more TV time for the women's roster has yet to be revealed, though.
