WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made a name for himself being a commentator in WWE and delivering some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling.
Vince McMahon is the Chairman of WWE and oversees everything that goes on in the company. However, due to the decline in quality of the product over the past few years, many fans have been wondering when Vince McMahon will step down and let Triple H take over.
While speaking on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about what would happen if WWE ever gets sold. Ross arrived at the conclusion that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon should be running the company if it ever gets sold.
“Let’s say it sells. It has to be sold with the thought in mind that there are people in place to run it. It’s a unique genre and takes a special breed, background, and desire to make it work. Our audience now with social media are more educated. Wrestling fans have something to carry their flag around and people are paying attention in a great way. If I were going to sell WWE, who better to run it than Triple H and his wife? The DNA is there, the experience, Vince has given them a great opportunity to have more experience in upper management.
“The key thing is talent and television. One without the other doesn’t make any money. If they do sell, it’d be a huge win for all involved, especially the family. It’s no guaranteed that (if they sell), Triple H and Stephanie have to find new jobs. I assume they’ll be running it.”
While the topic of WWE getting sold gained some steam after the company released several WWE Superstars and members of staff in the past few months, it is highly unlikely the company will be sold anytime soon.
