Prior to McMahon's exit, there was concern that the product would suffer because many, especially stockholders, were of the belief that he had the magic touch and WWE would not function as well without McMahon at the helm.
The last few weeks have proved that the company will be fine without him and the word is that the backstage morale is much better. WrestlingNews.co was told that wrestlers are very happy with what Triple H has done and some wrestlers who are on the sidelines realize that everyone can't get a push right off the bat but they are more secure with their spot than they were just a couple of months ago. WrestlingNews.co is told that there is more of a family atmosphere backstage and everyone wants to see the company grow because it will reflect well on Triple H, since he is beloved by most.
Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that the mood backstage has been great since Vince's departure.
"I think that we're starting to learn, it really hit me...was that it really hit that Vince really was a hindrance," Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio. "People sort of speculated and everything but when you see the difference in the mood over there. I think it's a better product. For the most part, and there are exceptions there too because there's people who are close to Vince but for the most part, the talent is very happy because a lot of the weird Vince-isms are gone that didn't need to be there. A lot of the weird stupidity is out the window."
In recent weeks, Triple H has brought back several names that were released by McMahon. Wrestlers are given more freedom on the microphone and most of the silly segments have been eliminated from the shows.
