McMahon received an unwelcome guest instead. Triple H, not seen on television since April, interrupted his father-in-law. "The Game," a WWE executive and husband of Stephanie McMahon, told The Chairman that his decisions of late have been called into question by WWE board members. Triple H dropped a bombshell and announced that he had been appointed to take over the day-to-day operations of WWE. He dropped an additional bombshell by informing The Chairman of WWE that he has officially been stripped of his power and "relieved of his duties."
McMahon stood in the ring sulking as RAW went off the air.
Triple H's close friend, Sean Waltman, wrote on his Twitter that the events that unfolded on-screen were real.
"The text [Triple H] sent me today makes much more sense now," wrote Waltman. "That was the real deal, that last 5 or however many minutes."
We will have more on this story today.
