Vince McMahon is arguably the most powerful man in the world of sports and entertainment. The billionaire bought his father’s wrestling company in 1982 and transformed it into the juggernaut it is today. Now he is preparing to get back in one of his own rings.

McMahon’s last official televised match took place more than a decade ago when he wrestled WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart in a no-holds barred lumberjack match at WrestleMania XXVI.

The WWE head honcho is set to have a match at WrestleMania 38 this year. SmackDown commentator Pat McAfee is the rumored opponent and the two are expected to begin their angle on The Pat McAfee Show this Thursday,

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com recently reported that WWE are planning to have a “smoke and mirrors” match for McMahon given his advanced age. This type of match usually involves numerous interferences. Expect Austin Theory to play the part of McMahon’s lackey in the match.

We will have to see how this turns out, but WrestleMania should be very interesting.
