During the latest edition of the Wrestling With Freddie podcast, actor and former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. weighed in on Vince McMahon retiring from his position as Chairman and CEO of WWE. Below are some highlights (via

Prinze Jr. on his expectation that Vince McMahon will come back:

“Everybody comes back. John Laurinaitis has been fired before and comes back. Bruce Prichard was fired before and came back twice.”

Co-host Jeff Dye on how WWE helped rehabilitate the public image of Ric Flair:

“As anti-climatic as that is, as it defeats the point of retirement, I actually totally agree with you and I’m not trying to be a conspiracy theorist. Ric Flair just said publicly, ‘Vince promised me, I would get back in the opening credits of WWE. Every promise he’s ever made me, he’s kept,’ and now Ric is back in the opening segment of Monday Night Raw and it’s one of those things where when that episode of ‘Dark Side Of The Ring’ came out, it was, ‘Hey man, you need to disappear for awhile. Your behavior on the plane was inappropriate then and in today’s day and age it’s just going to be smashed on so you have to go away, but when it all blows over, we’ll bring you back.’”

Prinze on how McMahon still owns almost all of the controlling stock in WWE:

“He still owns almost all of the controlling stock. He still has I think 80-85% of the voting stock. Where’s he going to go? What’s he going to do?”
