Vince McMahon is not in charge of running things in the WWE programming like he used to do in his prime. His words used to be the final stamp of approval on what would air on Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, each week. Most of the time, he used to be present on both the shows and take the final call in the contents. That tradition has said to be changed a lot in recent times.

It was added that SmackDown is the show where Vince McMahon has rarely appeared at backstage since Thanksgiving episode. The tradition has reportedly continued up to this past week’s episode as the Road to WrestleMania continues,

“We were told that Vince McMahon was rarely, if ever at the show between Thanksgiving and the February 5th episode.”

At present, Bruce Prichard is in creative control at the Gorilla Position for Friday Night SmackDown episodes. He is the Executive Director as per official updates from WWE but it’s not fully known how much input he gives on airing the contents. Vince McMahon is present only at Raw “approximately half the time.” it was also revealed that “McMahon is said to have been exceptionally private of late.”

In the past, Vince McMahon would not have missed even a single episode of Monday Night Raw as this happens to be the flagship program of the WWE.

He would even go through tedious traveling schedules to make sure that he is present at Gorilla. Nowadays, Paul Heyman is in full charge of the show being the Executive Director. Vince McMahon was reportedly ‘putting people in place with the intention of stepping back’ and the process is continuing, effectively.
