There have been rumors floating around the WWE for years regarding Vince McMahon’s level of control and whether the man who sculpted the league into the powerhouse it is today might soon be stepping back.
But according to one recent report about McMahon’s almost obsessive attention to detail regarding on-air talent, he is apparently not stepping back at all. In a report from Bryan Alvaraz of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McMahon banned talent from using the word “briefcase” during programming.
The report came out just after the Money in the Bank event, and noted that McMahon wants WWE talent to refer to the Money in the Bank Briefcase instead as the Money in the Bank Contract. While that may seem like a small or inconsequential point, it follows a pattern of McMahon being very careful about presentation.
