We will also see who is the most likely successor to Vince McMahon as the head of WWE. So without any further ado, let us dive in and take a look at some big stories that could affect WWE in the coming future.


#5 Paige’s status with WWE

Paige is a pioneer in the WWE women’s division. Unfortunately, she had to retire prematurely due to injury issues. Despite that, she is still under a WWE contract but hasn’t been used as an on-screen character.

With multiple WWE releases taking place this year, many fans fear that Paige could soon be let go by the company seeing as they don’t have anything for her to do. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has said that Paige will not be released by WWE as they see value in her.

“Maybe they feel that there is value in her as far as appearances and things like that. That her name is strong enough and stuff that, it’s worth it to keep her employed and worth it for the company. Also, because of the injury and the career-ending nature of it, you know there may be some feelings regarding that as well,” said Dave Meltzer.

#4 Who will replace Vince McMahon as WWE head honcho?

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has said that the President and Chief Revenue Officer of WWE, Nick Khan, will become the top guy in WWE and replace Vince McMahon. He said there will be a board of directors, but Khan is most likely to be at the helm of things unless they appoint someone new.

“It’s kind of a board of directors thing, but you know, probably (Nick Khan replacing Vince McMahon), yeah. Unless they went and hired somebody else from the outside, but probably Nick Khan, yes,” revealed Dave Meltzer.

Fans often wondered who would succeed Vince McMahon as WWE head. Though it was initially believed that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon would lead the charge, it looks like Nick Khan will be the man to step in.

Nick Khan could be a direct replacement for Vince McMahon for corporate affairs, but someone like Triple H will head the creative department.


#4 Former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy released

Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt was released by WWE earlier this year. His release had come as a big surprise to everyone considering he was a former world champion. It is now being reported that another former WWE Champion, Jeff Hardy, has been let go by the company.

Fightful revealed that Jeff Hardy has been let go by WWE. Hardy came under scrutiny during a recent live event where he walked off into the crowd midway during a match. Matt Hardy gave an update saying that Jeff is doing okay now. However, it looks like WWE has decided to part ways with the iconic superstar.

#2 Truth about the rumored breakup of WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair and Andrade

There had been a lot of rumors suggesting WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair and Andrade had called off their relationship. However, Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc has stated that these rumors are baseless and the couple is still very much together. Here is what Cageside seats reported:

Some signs indicate that the reports of their break-up were greatly exaggerated: Wrestling Inc’s Raj Giri tweeted “word I’ve gotten is that Charlotte Flair and Andrade are still very much together,” and Andrade posted a selfie seemingly to Charlotte and commented “F…. Fake News”

The speculation started after the two stopped following each other on social media. Andrade and Flair have been together since 2019 and got engaged in 2020. Andrade is currently a part of the AEW roster whereas Charlotte Flair is the reigning SmackDown Women’s champion in WWE.


#1 Ric Flair compared former WWE Superstar Braun Strowman to Vader

WWE Hall of Famer compared Braun Strowman to the late, great Vader while speaking on his podcast. Flair said Strowman had a little bit of Vader in him. Vader is a former WCW Champion and has also held the IWGP Heavyweight title.

“He did, he did (had a little bit of Vader in him). Absolutely. Braun is a really nice guy. He doesn’t have a mean streak in him,” said the 16-time World Champion.
