— It was also Levesque and wife Stephanie McMahon who were responsible for all the contract negotiations with Ronda Rousey, a key difference than in the past where for example, Vince McMahon handled the deal with Brock Lesnar.

— It is unknown that when Lesnar’s contract expires later this year, who will be the key figure(s) working with him on a new contract since technically it’s now HHH’s department as head of talent relations but ultimately, it is still Vince’s company.
