Vince McMahon turned 68 years old this week and personally I wonder how much longer he will be at the helm of the WWE. Right now, he's involved in the biggest storyline of the year so far, and I wonder if his retirement could be sooner than expected.
McMahon has been in charge of the WWE for over 30 years now, he's been involved in some of the biggest moments in professional wrestling history. His feud with Steve Austin back in the 90's is legendary, and who will ever forget the infamous Montreal Screwjob in 1997.
But, it's not just his on-screen personality that should be admired, who know's where professional wrestling would be should Vince McMahon have not been around. He's presented to WWE a worldwide fanbase, WWE is now broadcast in more than 150 countries and 30 languages.
However, with every year that passes we are nearing the end of Vince's reign. Whether through retirement or Vince's death, Triple H and Stephanie will take over eventually. I feel with Triple H in charge that the product could get better. He is a wrestler first and foremost, surely the storylines and the in-ring action would be his main agenda.
We've already seen some of Triple H's successes, he's running NXT, which is a really good show in my opinion, albeit on a much smaller budget than Raw or Smackdown, the WWE Performance Center was apparently his doing also. Triple H is building for the future.
Things are looking very bright for the future of the WWE, Vince McMahon has already brought WWE to a global scale. With the talent they have in their developmental system, there are many future main event stars just waiting to get called up to the main roster.
If these Superstars are used correctly, we could see another extremely profitable time for the WWE, just like in the early 2000's and late 90's when there was an abundance of great talent.
It will be interesting to see just how Vince McMahon's creation works, when Vince is no longer running the show.
