Report: Vince McMahon Was ‘In Gorilla All Night’ At WWE Raw, More Details

Report: Vince McMahon Was ‘In Gorilla All Night’ At WWE Raw, More Details WWE

Some more details have emerged on Vince McMahon being backstage at last night’s March 6 episode of WWE Raw in Boston, Massachusetts.

It was the first time McMahon was backstage at a WWE show since July 2022, and the question on everyone’s minds is what he was doing there.

Last night, the story that came out was that he was there primarily to visit John Cena who was making his return, but it sounds like there was more to it than that.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio today, Dave Meltzer said:

“He was in Gorilla all night, so what does that tell you?

“He wasn’t barking orders at people or anything like that, but he was in Gorilla all night and I was told they tell you he’s only there to visit John Cena, that’s the story, but there’s more to it than that.

“He’s doing more than they’re letting on, but the person who was in control was Levesque (Triple H).

“It’s not like he was there in charge and doing stuff, but it’s not like he was just visiting John Cena and saying hi to a few people and then left. That didn’t happen either.

“The truth is a little bit in the middle.”

After his departure in July 2022, McMahon returned to the WWE executive chairman position in January 2023, but the claim was that he was only back to spearhead a sale of the company and wouldn’t be running creative.

Paul Levesque did tell WWE talent in backstage meetings after McMahon’s return that they “may have discussions” about creative but ultimately Levesque is the one who makes the final decisions.

We’ll keep you posted if any more updates emerge, which you’ll be able to find at this link.

On a lighter note, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported that McMahon was sporting what was described as a “creepy little mustache” last night.
