Following a successful Royal Rumble PPV, WWE entered a hassling state when it comes to a corporate context. Vince McMahon fired two of the Co-Presidents of the company named George Barrios and Michelle Wilson. These two were primarily responsible for setting up the global brand that WWE has become today.
With their departure, WWE stock tanked a lot and rumors started building up that Vince McMahon may be willing to sell the company, after all. However, Tom Colohue wiped out all of those speculations in his latest reports.
Now he added that with XFL launching in a few days, Vince McMahon will step back from his day-to-day duties in the WWE. He won’t be in charge of more specific things in the company and someone needs to wear his shoes. Colohue is reporting that Shane McMahon is in line to run WWE after Vince. Surprisingly, it won’t be Triple H or Stephanie McMahon who is going to be the successor,
“It’s worth mentioning though that, to my knowledge, Triple H is not the next in line to take over WWE after Vince McMahon. The next in line is Shane McMahon.
I know people want Triple H, but Shane McMahon is the next in line and that’s one of the reasons he’s been doing production work, for example at the Royal Rumble.”
The source continued mentioning how Shane McMahon was present at Royal Rumble weekend to take care of production things alongside his father. He might not have been thoroughly involved with WWE but has a lot of experience when it comes to managing official duties. So the company heads may have given a green signal so that Shane can transition into a new role,
“He’s been involved in everything since day one, essentially from his birth into this company. He’s set up the ring, he’s done ref work, he’s been involved in storylines. Shane McMahon knows wrestling, he knows how to be successful.
We’re going to see Shane involved a lot more in the future. He is going to take a lot more of the control, now that Vince is stepping back.” (courtesy wwfoldschool.com)
