Vince McMahon, realized it was not 'best for business'. He had no other choice but to purchase it back. He made a bid of giving his money 100 percent back, which Donald Trump refused. He further went upto 125,150 and 175 percent, to whichh Trump kept refusing. Fianlly they made an agreement, as per which, Vince McMahon had to return double the money and thus Donald Trump agreed to sell RAW back to Vince McMahon.
