TMZ Sports then reported that the surgery was a success. However, there is no update on Vince McMahon’s recovery timeline, and neither there is a word on the specific nature of this surgery.
Vince McMahon is a veteran of this business. He has been in charge of WWE for multiple decades before finally stepping aside in July 2022 due to allegations of sexual misconduct and hush money.
As a result, Nick Khan & Stephanie McMahon were named Co-CEOs of the company where Triple H became the Head of Creative.
However, Vince returned to WWE earlier this year in January and was elected the Executive Chairman of the Board. In April, WWE announced a merger with the UFC that will be done by Endeavor later this year.
