Vince McMahon has been incredibly successful as the owner of WWE over the past several decades.

He has overseen the rise of the organization to amongst the most-watched and discussed brands out there today.

But with that success, and the money it brings, there has inevitably, in recent times, been questions raised about the possibility of a future sale of the WWE. Or just what exactly will happen when the 68-year old isn't there to maintain control?

And McMahon gave a hint at what he thinks is to come in an interview today with Forbes Magazine.

Asked if he thought it likely that another McMahon could run the company in the future he had this to say:

"I would like to see a degree of that.

"I just think as times go on, things will evaporate. Eventually Uncle Sam sees the benefit. You can't do anything without Uncle Sam taking a huge bite," explained McMahon.

His daughter Stephenie McMahon and her husband, wrestling veteran Triple H, had been presumed next in line to the title but the super rich owner clearly feels there may come a time then when the WWE moves away from the trusty hands of the McMahon family.

And with recent reports suggesting a sale could be in the pipeline his comments do little to quell that idea.

The organization have just recently launched the WWE Network however, a $75 million investment on their part, and it is unlikely Vince McMahon will want to say goodbye to his project just yet but it looks like he is certainly leaving the door open to future investors should they be interested.

And with WWE at an all time high, both in popularity and value, and WrestleMania just around the corner, those investors are likely queuing up already.
