Time and again, the WWE boss has been accused of ignoring the fans and pushing his own agenda. Shoving unpopular superstars down our throats without caring what the fans think. Being the chairman of the board, Vince McMahon usually has the final word on key decisions. Pundits have pointed out that once Vince makes a decision on the direction of the company, very few can question him.

Pushing Roman Reigns to the sky despite fans disapproval, not pushing talented superstars like Cesaro are few instances of the boss pushing his own agenda. However, there have been instances when Vince bowed down to pressure and gave the fans what they wanted.

Here are five times Vince gave in to the fans' demands.

AJ Styles is regarded as one of the best professional wrestlers in history. Currently, he is the only wrestler to have held the NWA, TNA, IWGP and WWE championships. He was the most popular wrestler to not compete in a WWE ring and fans wanted him in the biggest wrestling company in the world.

Their voices were heard when Vince signed him in 2016 and Styles made his debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble match. The ovation he received that night was deafening. It is worth noting that Styles had two appearances for the WWE (then WWF) in 2002 before rejecting a development deal. Since his debut, Styles has won the WWE and the United States championship titles. Also, he has headlined several pay-per-views.
