Vince McMahon has been the chief decision maker for WWE since he purchased the company from his father. This mindset brought him loads of success, but at this juncture McMahon could have too much on his plate.
Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon really doesn’t sleep much. Enough years without sleep will eventually catch up to you.
“You can do your surgeries and all the things like that but ultimately the lack of sleep is going to get to you.”
“It worries me because he’s been such a fixture but it’s like for better or worse it’s a big change when he’s not gonna be there. I’m not saying death or anything, but it’s a sign that the day is coming that he’s not gonna be there whether he gets old. Look, every time I see him on TV, I get worried. So yeah, there’s something to that.”
“He’s got decades of experience that nobody else has and you can’t minimize that.”
“We haven’t even gotten to football season yet and that starts in another year. Again, he was much, much younger during the original XFL and I dealt with him during the original XFL and not just him.”
Meltzer noted that Vince McMahon promised that the XFL this time around wouldn’t pull WWE resources. We already know this to be untrue.
While the new football project will have their own CEO and internal system, McMahon is still expected to be heavily involved. This simply might not leave enough hours in the day for Vince McMahon to continue on like he has.
“For [Vince McMahon] that is still a very scary proposition because you simply can’t run WWE and the XFL at the same time. There’s not enough hours in the day.”
“I mean [the XFL] is Oliver Luck’s thing, but the reality is that Vince is gonna wanna have input and by virtue of wanting to have input you’re going to work hour and hours on it and he doesn’t have those hours.”
“He probably doesn’t have enough hours to run WWE anymore to be fair. To throw in the XFL as well it’s going to be a very tough period for him
Vince McMahon might have bitten off more than he can chew once again. We’ll have to wait to see what the XFL might bring to WWE or how it could affect the entire operation.
Only time will tell if the XFL’s rebirth could finally give Vince McMahon a chance to hand the reins of the WWE over to someone else. This could become a very difficult time for Vince McMahon if he continues to try and keep so many balls up in the air because nobody can juggle that kind of responsibility forever.
