A historic night for WWE with the first WrestleMania without Vince McMahon

This WrestleMania is one for the history books as it is the first WrestleMania which is both Vince McMahon-free.

Throughout its history, WrestleMania had many different protagonists, main eventers, and everything in between but there was always one man who was constant in the previous 39 editions: the former WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

The man who started it all. The man who built professional wrestling in what it is today.

But this weekend, there will be no McMahon screaming in the announcers headphones, no McMahon giving instructions at gorilla position, and no McMahon doing last-minute changes to the script.

Simply put, there will be no Vince McMahon backstage at all. The disgraced former TKO Chairman of the Board has more pressing things on his mind: a major lawsuit from his ex-lover Janel Grant and a possible federal investigation.

McMahon was forced to resign in the first week of January after the explosive lawsuit was filed and WWE has cut all ties with him, even banning his name from being said on television, at least for now.

It’s also important to add that this is also the first WrestleMania without Executive Producer and Chief of Global TV Distribution Kevin Dunn, who has also seen every single WrestleMania except for the one this weekend. Dunn departed WWE after McMahon lost most of his power following the TKO merger and gone were the much-hated shaky and quick cuts from WWE television.

It’s a new era in WWE and Triple H and Nick Khan are fully in charge of WrestleMania, with Triple H calling the shots creatively.
