Vince McMahon may have unwittingly provided the answer to America's unemployment campaign. Apparently, you can show up to the job you were removed from months ago, pretend nothing has changed and go about your business. And as long as you suck up to the customers, they'll ignore the facts of the recent past. The corporate management of WWE has become a clustered mess of chaos that only seems to be brought up when it's convenient for the sake of storytelling. Is McMahon still the chairman of the board?

On Monday night, something that was once unthinkable happened: The WWE announced the induction of The Ultimate Warrior into its Hall of Fame. Not much is needed to be said about the in-ring career of Ultimate Warrior (born James Brian Hellwig), or at least the peak of it. After being signed by the WWF, his combination of size and his energy made him one of the most popular wrestlers of that era. His matches, and especially his bizarre promos, are still talked about to this day. His title-vs-title match against Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania VI is still considered one of the most memorable matches of all time.

After decades of terrorizing enemies in the ring (and a famous stint becoming one himself), Robert Remus, better known to fans as Sgt. Slaughter, is a public ambassador for WWE. He can be seen on many nights representing the company at charity events and at local independent wrestling events. "Part of my job is to send new talent [to WWE]", Slaughter, 65, said in a phone interview on Tuesday promoting WWE's latest DVD releases ("RAW 20th Anniversary Collection" and "The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment")

Tonight on a three-hour edition of Raw, Vince McMahon returns to WWE TV for the first time since October 2011.  This is a very interesting situation for many reasons. For one, ratings in the United States have taken a dip. Though Nielsen ratings are not a completely accurate measure of performance, it is often used by many as a measuring stick of success. In the past four episodes, Raw has seen this trend: June 4: 2.92 rating May 28 (Memorial Day): 2.72 rating May 21: 3.0 rating May 14: 2.9 rating The average rating for Raw in 2012, from the beginning of February to the end of April, in the U.S. is 3.16.

I didn't keep count, but it seemed to me that Vince McMahon's name was mentioned more times on TNA Impact on Thursday night than Samoa Joe's, Sting's and Kurt Angle's - combined. Angle and Jeff Jarrett made the WWE chairman the focus of their angle, and even Mick Foley took a shot at his former boss in his much-anticipated debut promo.

The boss came back to Monday Night Raw, but it didn't really mean much. Tonight's entire episode had been hyped around the return of Vince McMahon to conduct a job evaluation for general manager John Laurinaitis. In the end, there wasn't much of a job evaluation at all. Instead, fans were treated to a variety of backstage segmets starring McMahon, ranging in quality from horrible and offensive to not very entertaining, and a show-closing angle featuring Big Show and John Cena.

It's June. The "Wrestlemania hangover" is now far in the rear-view mirror. Some fans may have moved away from WWE for the time being. SummerSlam is in 2 months. It's in this sweet spot where something spectacular seems to happen on WWE Raw -- something that gets people talking. Last year, Vince McMahon returned to Raw for the first time in over a year. In 2011, CM Punk dropped a "pipe bomb" on television. In 2010, the Nexus formed. In 2009, Donald Trump bought Raw. In 2008, Vince McMahon vowed to give away $1 million.

Vince McMahon contorted his face and writhed in faux agony on the wrestling ring canvas as the raucous crowd howled in approval. Standing over the 58-year-old chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment was his smirking daughter, Stephanie, 27, reveling in a takedown of her father with a well-placed kick to his groin. Although he outwardly emoted intense pain, inside Vince had to be swelling with pride. That's because his daughter, like her brother, Shane, has followed him into the family business of professional wrestling, and this scene had played out just as it was scripted.

This year marks 50 years since the World Wide Wrestling Federation (now known as WWE) was formed. To celebrate, WWE has created a DVD/BluRay entitled "The History of WWE: 50 years of sports entertainment," a biographical history of the company. The offering hit shelves on Tuesday. What I liked about the feature was how much time was spent on WWE's history -- naturally the title lends itself to this, but you learn tidbits of information about each McMahon family member, going back to "Jess" McMahon, who promoted boxing several decades ago. It includes interviews with many familiar faces, includind some rare to be found in past WWE documentaries, such as George "The Animal" Steele and Jimmy Valiant.

During WWE's third quarter earnings conference call on Thursday, chairman Vince McMahon called WWE's recent SummerSlam pay-per-view a "swing and a miss. " The event, which is traditionally WWE's second-largest of the year, took place on Aug. 18. McMahon noted that pay-pay-views are attraction driven and that Summerslam didn't feature the right attraction. The advertised co-main events at Summerslam were John Cena defending the WWE title against Daniel Bryan, and CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar.

I want to start this by saying that this isn't going to be a career retrospect for Jim Ross, who just announced his retirement from WWE after 20 years . If you are reading this, you probably already are familiar with his work and why he has his place in history. If you don't, a good place to start would be WWE's Legends of Mid South DVD... then Legend's Round Table... then a plethora of WWE Pay Per View events in the 90s and 2000s, and WCW/NWA before that. There isn't a shortage of JR footage out there for you to study.

After Vince McMahon gave CM Punk the ultimatum of John Cena or Ryback as his Hell in a Cell opponent last week, one of the fine people I follow on Twitter alluded to it being a choice between "the devil Punk knows and the devil he doesn't know. " On tonight's edition of Raw, Punk himself used those very words when addressing the crowd. It was a clever tie-in with the pay-per-view poster that depicts Punk as a devil himself. Punk's desire to toy with the crowd cost him, though, as Vince McMahon told him he was taking too long to decide, and that McMahon would make the choice for him later in the show.
