Is Vince McMahon back as the WWE Creative Head?

There are rumblings that the long-time WWE Creative Head is back to his old tricks despite already being supplanted by Triple H.

Triple H has been serving as the Creative Head of the WWE ever since Vince McMahon vacated the role last year. But, now that McMahon has successfully muscled his way back inside the WWE, a lot of people behind the scenes believe that Triple H might no longer be the sole decision maker.

For all intents and purposes, Triple H is still the WWE Creative Head.

Following Omos' challenge to Brock Lesnar to a WrestleMania 39 showdown, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select claims that unnamed sources within the WWE are concerned about the creative input that McMahon might have on the WWE. Sapp didn't specifically say that McMahon is back on the creative team. Sapp merely adds that McMahon might have input, but Triple H is still the one who's in charge.

McMahon's penchant for seeing heavyweights take each other on inside the squared circle is supposedly a telling sign that he's back. But, you can't deny that Lesnar doesn't have too many other options right now. Triple H might think that a match against Lesnar is a way to help build Omos up into a better draw ahead of WrestleMania 39.

Keep in mind that we're only weeks away from the Show of Shows and there are plenty of matches that need to be filled for the two-day extravaganza.

Besides, when you think about it, it makes sense for some of Triple H's decisions to resemble what McMahon would have done. Don't forget, Vince is Triple H's father-in-law, and the wrestling icon spent years under his tutelage.

For as long as Vince McMahon is in the WWE, people will always think that he's got some influence in how the matches are booked.

For now, you can file McMahon's return to the WWE creative team in the "speculation" drawer. While there have been some questionable decisions lately, there are enough differences on both RAW and SmackDown from the previous regime suggesting that The Game is still the one calling the shots.

WrestleMania 39, which takes place from April 1-2 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, is Triple H's first as the WWE creative head.
