Vince McMahon refusing to do WWE conference calls from now on as 75-year-old starts to step back from frontline duty

WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is reportedly refusing to do interviews and company conference calls any more.

PWInsider's Dave Scherer revealed that the 75-year-old has made the decision to take a backseat on the bulk of the company's media enquiries.

McMahon is also said to be winding down his onscreen appearances, having only featured on WWE TV sporadically over recent years.

The American billionaire's latest spot was an out-of-character address he gave to fans on WrestleMania 37's first night.

Recent WWE calls have seen executives such as President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan face the media rather than McMahon.


The news comes as Stephanie McMahon recently hinted at what the future of WWE could look like once her dad Vince steps down.

WWE's chief brand officer claimed it is virtually impossible for one person to fill the role of the company's founder.

Billionaire boss Vince revolutionised WWE from a regional business into a global phenomenon after taking over the company in 1982.

Speaking to Wrestling Inc, Stephanie said: "I don’t think there will ever be a person to person replacement for Vince McMahon. He does too much.

"The landscape would look different however it shakes out.

"But I think it’s a marriage of institutional knowledge, the incredible production value, the creation of talent IP and storylines and really strong business executives to help us expand. I think it’s a combination of things."

SunSport previously reported that McMahon Sr. was significantly late for Monday Night RAW this week.

The former XFL owner allegedly missed the creative meeting before making a number of changes to the show.
