In a recent appearance, Vince McMahon, head honcho of WWE, has raised eyebrows among fans and followers of the wrestling world. On October 28, 2023, McMahon was sighted in Saudi Arabia, where he was present for the much-anticipated bout between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou. However, what caught the attention of many was the cane he was using to assist his walking.

This marks one of McMahon's few public appearances since undergoing a spinal surgery in July 2023, as reported by TMZ. The surgery, which spanned four hours, was deemed successful, though the reasons for the procedure remain undisclosed. Following his operation, McMahon has maintained a low profile, making his recent outing all the more noteworthy.

While the sight of McMahon with a cane has sparked concern among some fans, others see it as an encouraging sign. A TikTok video by Going Ringside, featuring Scott Johnson, shed some light on the matter. After consulting medical experts, Johnson shared that for someone in their late 70s recovering from spinal surgery, using a cane — as opposed to a walker or wheelchair — is indicative of a "best-case scenario" recovery. Johnson further speculated that McMahon might rely on the cane for the foreseeable future.

Despite the speculation and concern surrounding his health, McMahon has yet to make any public statement regarding his recovery or the need for the cane.

Social media reactions to McMahon's appearance have been mixed. While some expressed worry at seeing the WWE icon with a cane, others defended him, highlighting his age and recent surgery. One Twitter user remarked, "He just had spinal surgery and he is just south of 80. Why wouldn’t he be using a cane?" Another added, "Why does it matter if @VinceMcMahon is walking with a cane? The man is 78 years old for goodness sake."

Interestingly, McMahon's health wasn't the sole topic of discussion. Many were quick to comment on his noticeably thinner mustache, with the majority expressing their preference for his former look.
