Vince McMahon wasn’t present backstage during this past week’s Extreme Rules, Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live broadcasts. Vince is usually one to micromanage his shows and there is no word on whether he was in contract with those who were running the show or not.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Vince ritually takes a week’s vacation around mid-July and has done for some years now.
Vince was also not present for Hulk Hogan’s meeting with everyone backstage at Extreme Rules after his reinstatement to the Hall of Fame. Rumors are swirling that the Hulkster is back with the company but news of a new deal has not yet surfaced and it is unknown in what capacity, if any, Hogan will move forward with WWE.
