Vince McMahon is no longer in charge of WWE’s creative team, but he is still giving his thoughts. According to a recent story, McMahon had a spine operation and is recovering in time for SummerSlam.
Last year, Vince McMahon chose to step down from his role as CEO and Creative Head, and it seemed like he retired from WWE. But earlier this year, he came back to the company and made an agreement with Endeavor to combine the companies.

McMahon changed his opinion on LA Knight
Last year, LA Knight joined the main roster as Max Dupri after WrestleMania 38 and formed the Maximum Male Models. But the old management didn’t like him, so they wanted him to be a manager and changed his name. However, when Triple H took charge, things changed. LA Knight returned to the main roster, had a feud with Bray Wyatt, and eventually won over the crowd, becoming a fan favorite.
As per PWTorch‘s report, Vince McMahon’s view of LA Knight transformed when he gained popularity on his own. Now, McMahon likes The Megastar on WWE SmackDown.
Even though Knight has had some success, he still has more chances to win championships on the main roster. He did not qualify for the United States Championship invitational after failing to win the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match. It will be intriguing to see what LA Knight’s next move on WWE SmackDown will be.
