It was me all along, Austin!" - Vince McMahon It was one of the biggest reveals in WWE history as WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was revealed as the "Higher Power" of the Ministry of Darkness that would later be known as The Corporate Ministry. It's been called the Greater Power too, for the record. The reveal also meant that Vince even sacrificed his daughter Stephanie McMahon where she was put in danger at the hands of the evil Undertaker. All of it made sense because nothing ever really happened to her and Vince could say he was protecting her even though his actions were unbecoming of a loving dad. That's what made him a great heel, though. He was a jerk all the time, even to his family if it benefited him. What was interesting about the angle is that immediately after Vince revealed himself as the Higher Power, Steve Austin became the CEO of WWE thanks to an appointment by Linda McMahon. It was a huge angle at the height of the Attitude Era that worked very well thanks in large part to the fantastic heel work of Vince McMahon.
