Vince McMahon has been criticized on multiple occasions and the biggest one being not giving creative freedom to the talents. This aspect has led to multiple stars leaving the company.

Vince McMahon has held back stars including the likes of Miro, Damien Sandow, Matt Cardona and more have all been vocal about this in the past.

Heath Slater recently joined in for an interview and spoke to Title Match Wrestling reflecting on his 2016 free agent storyline. Fans were certainly behind him at that time but Slater felt that Vince did not want to give him more television time. Slater then accused Vince McMahon of holding back WWE Superstars until McMahon himself decides it.

He said: “It was one of those things, man. I already saw it happen so many times with other guys. The people want it, Vince doesn’t want it. So the people are gonna let you know they want it, but Vince is just gonna keep that guy back and not gonna give it to you until he wants you to have it. It was one of those things like, yeah, I heard it, I appreciated it and I loved it.”

It is not known if WWE will ever change regarding trying to hold back stars who get over with fans.
