Vince McMahon should hand WWE over to son-in-law Triple H as promotion 'would change for the better', says WCW legend
27th January 2021

TRIPLE H should run the WWE and take over from Vince McMahon – “changing it for the better”, claims WCW legend Konnan.

The wrestling promotion has been headed by the 75-year-old for around four decades, starting it in around 1980 and owning it to this day.

Fans have often called for him to step down as its head, with the WWE changing to a more PG-style from the gritty Attitude Era of the past.

And Konnan claims McMahon should hand over the reigns to son-in-law Triple H – real name Paul Levesque – due to his impressive work with NXT.

He told SKWrestling: "NXT is such a well-done show, well-produced show, great matches, great eye for talent.

"He’s (Triple H) running that. I think it would change for the better. I think Triple H knows what they need."

SunSport told least year how McMahon was believed to be planning to leave it to HHH, with the handover already underway.

His daughter and son Stephanie and Shane are understood to be involved in the process, but will not be the head of the company.

And WWE legend Jim Ross believes The Game will be given the reigns to SmackDown and RAW, as well as NXT.

He said to Business Insider in 2018: “I have an opinion on where the company will go. I will say this, you know, Vince is very healthy.

“He still works out like a crazy man. He really takes care of himself. So, he ain't going anywhere soon.

“We don't want him to go anywhere soon. He's the rock that built that thing. He's the rudder in the water. It's an amazing company.

“I think that, if I'm guessing, and it's gonna strictly be a guess, that the money would be on, probably, Paul Levesque to be Vince's successor.


“I think Vince is kind of preparing him for that in a lot of ways.

“You always knew that he was different from the other guys because he was very studious, and very – under control. He didn’t drink. No drugs.

“He looked to be a lifer early on, and he got a lot of that from being a fan all his life growing up in the northeast, New Hampshire.

“Then, getting trained by Killer Kowalski who was a great, old-school guy. So, I think he's probably the heir apparent.

“Stephanie is very involved and, you know, is really more of a face of WWE. She does a lot of charity work. And she's great at that. And you've got to have that in that world.

“I think Shane seems to be, apparently, content with being a TV character. I don't know where his role's gonna be going forward or what he wants it to be.

“But, I think that Paul Levesque is the one that seems to be earmarked to be the next guy, if and when Vince is not in that role.”
