Vince McMahon is still Chairman Of The Board in WWE and runs the show as he sees fit. In reality, WWE Superstars are just doing what Vince wants them to do (for the most part) and fans are just lucky to watch what he creates. However, McMahon is also a billionaire businessman who has his hands in many different projects.
Triple H recently discussed Vince McMahon’s current role in WWE while speaking to the Sports Business Journal. His father-in-law is 73-years-old, but he is still incredibly active. Even though he has the XFL and other projects, McMahon is at RAW and SmackDown to make sure everything runs to his liking.
“[Vince] has the most incredible work ethic of any person I have ever seen,” Triple H said. “It’s impossible to hang with him on a long term basis even at 73. It’s crazy: he still trains every day, still does everything but he’s hands on on so many things, not because he micromanages or not because he can’t let people succeed and do things, but when it comes to creative and the shows, he’s at RAW and SmackDown every week. That’s the part that he loves; he found himself as a business man but that’s what he loves to do and he’s awesome at it, and that is his passion. He won’t give that up, not because he should – it’s his passion.”
Vince McMahon isn’t likely to retire anytime soon. WWE realizes how important he is to the operation and has even informed their stockholders of this fact.
It will be a very interesting day when McMahon finally steps down from his role in WWE, but it might not happen for a very long time because he shows no signs of stopping.
