Vince McMahon is back in the saddle.
The WWE Chairman had missed several shows in late January, uncharacteristically skipping the Royal Rumble show. Fightful Select reported that as of Friday night, McMahon was back at the Thunderdome in Tampa and working.
After several shows away, Fightful has learned that Vince McMahon was back in-person at the February 5 Smackdown. McMahon had missed several shows around the passing of his brother Rod, but had still been integral in running the shows. He was also not heavily involved in the Thursday investor call.
We extend our condolences to the McMahon family for the loss of Rod.
