Vince McMahon has been known as the pioneer who revolutionized the wrestling industry forever. He is the reason his former company, WWE, is a global phenomenon today and has passed many of his traits to his family members. However, a former WWE star believes Triple H would have been the ideal son Vince desired.
Every member of Vince McMahon’s family has been a part of WWE in some capacity. His wife, Linda, served as the CEO of the company for a long time, while his son Shane has been considered the Man Without Fear for his exceptional in-ring performances and being a minority owner. Finally, Stephanie McMahon, his daughter, currently reigns over WWE as the co-CEO alongside Nick Khan.
Furthermore, Vince McMahon’s son-in-law Triple H has been an active part of the executive team for a long time and took over the reins from him as Head of Creative after his retirement. Former WWE star Maven recently stated that Triple H is the ideal son that Vince McMahon always wanted to have as opposed to his two children during an interview with Monte & The Pharaoh.
“Vince always wanted the son like Hunter. He always wanted the big, jacked up, great wrestler son. Shane was fearless and could go out there and do whatever, but he was never gonna be the wrestler that Vince probably wanted. Stephanie had the business, just the knowledge for what the business should be. I don’t know if either of them probably lived up to what Vince would’ve wanted, however, I don’t think anyone could have. I think what Vince had in his mind as the perfect offspring doesn’t exist. It’s probably John Cena’s body with The Rock’s charisma mixed with Triple H’s in-ring work, and that person just doesn’t exist.”
Vince McMahon took retirement from WWE in July 2022, amidst allegations and a hush money scandal. However, some recent reports indicate that the former WWE Chairman and CEO is eyeing a return to the company, which could have a drastic impact on the work done by the current regime of WWE.
