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 his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross stated that Vince McMahon would only sell WWE if his “key players,” Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are taken care of.
Well, I think Vince is going to do this till he can’t physically do it anymore. Vince is a great businessman, but if the right offer came along, that would make sure some of his key players are still taken care of, like Hunter (Triple H) and Stephanie (McMahon), I don’t have any doubt in my mind that he wouldn’t sell because it will be a billion-dollar plus deal. That would set up his grandchildren and his grandchildren’s grandchildren. So, he’s a smart businessman in other words. But I don’t think that in his lifetime he would be interested in selling, but I think he would be interested in putting the structure in place to sell.”
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.
