There is another dynamic to the current behind-the-scenes real life tension between Vince McMahon and Triple H. In speaking with various talent, it's apparent there are workers on Team Hunter and workers on Team Vince.

Many of the NXT guys are pro-Triple H and "can't wait for him to take over," while veterans are very loyal to Vince and feel like Hunter is in such a rush to overhaul the roster with "his guys," that he's neglecting a lot of existing talent. Mid-carders that have been there a while, feel the exact opposite about Triple H as the new guys. The writers all like Triple H better because they feel like he's more interested in week to week logic and less erratic. Not to mention, they get more face time with him on the day television is taped.

On the average Monday, Vince is "holed up in his room" not wanting anyone to see him. Apparently this stems from his own self-consciousness and the fact his health is deteriorating and he can't maintain the physique he was so proud of. The more time that passes, the fewer people that have direct access to him.

To explain the difference in philosophy, right now Vince wants to do everything possible to convince The Rock to come back and work Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31, whereas Hunter wants to do Brock vs. Roman Reigns. And while a lot of power has shifted to Hunter, Vince McMahon is head of creative and that power is something he may hold on to for years to come.
