Former sole owner of WWE Vince McMahon has left fans baffled after he appeared at a huge event announcing the completion of merger of the company with UFC.
Earlier today, WWE and UFC's parent company Endeavour joined forces under a new company called TKO Group, taking the the sports entertainment giants out of the hands of a McMahon for the firs time in more than 40 years.
In a presentation after the deal was announced in April, the WWE and Endeavor said that they will cross-promote to drive brand awareness and deepen penetration of their overlapping fan base of more than 700 million UFC fans and 1.2 billion WWE fans worldwide.

Endeavor has a 51% controlling interest in the new company, while existing WWE shareholders hold a 49% stake.
And Vince McMahon has been appointed as the Executive Chairman of TKO and the group's Chairman of the Board of Directors – with him having full control of the wrestling side of the company.
The merger was made official during a bell ringing ceremony at the New York Stock Exchange today.
Alongside representatives from the UFC, WWE had legendary wrestling Triple H and former Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair on site, as well as Vince McMahon.
And it was Vince's new look that left fans baffled, as he was seen with a thick moustache . . . and very dark hair.
The 78-year-old had been going grey in recent years, but his latest appearance looks very much as if he had dipped his entire head in a bowl of hair dye.

And fans noticed.
One posted on Twitter/X: “I know damn well Vince McMahon did not dye his hair and have porn moustache.”
And a second commented: “Vince McMahon with moustache still looks weird.”
A third added: “Vince McMahon has been going gray since the 1980s (sic).
“And then, in his late 70s, he decides he's gonna put soy sauce in his hair and look like a Mexican aristocrat on an episode of Cheyenne.”
And a four tweeted: “Vince McMahon that is not your real hair colour sir.”
Today's appearance was Vince's first for several months, after having back surgery last month.
It was thought he was still recovering in bed, but he was walking unaided during the event.
