Who Would Take Over WWE If Vince Was Gone?

Posted by Matt Boone March 20, 2014 8 Comments

Despite the rumor that AMC Networks was interested in purchasing controlling interest in WWE, investors don’t believe that Vince McMahon would be willing to sell controlling interest in his company. However, there is apparently some concern over what would take place if something were to happen to McMahon.

The general feeling is that Stephanie McMahon has taken a step back lately, and that Paul Levesque (Triple H) is not someone who could legitimately take over the role as CEO of a public company. Basically, while HHH has great knowledge of the wrestling business itself, his actual years of experience in management, as well as the non-wrestling obligations that a CEO has to deal with, is not something he has expertise in.

This would pretty much leave current WWE executives Michelle Wilson and/or George Barrios in the lead. The question on Barrios is his knowledge of the modern media landscape, as well as the wrestling side of things. In the case of Wilson, her knowledge of the wrestling aspect is also a question.

      Triple H and Steph… I dont think Shane nor Linda want to take over

      They could always have Barrios and Wilson deal with the business end while Triple H deals with the wrestling side as he learns the business side

      I, The Bulkster, officially throw my name into the ring as Vince’s heir apparent. I have a degree in business, I’m a former backyard champion, and my cards in Universe Mode on WWE2k14 are second to none. Bring me on Vince. I’ll be the black son you never had.

      I was offered up the role to take Vince’s spot when he’s gone, but I turned it down, brother!
