Vince McMahon is still avidly interested in WWE and engaged in the fortunes of the company. Those are the thoughts of WWE's Chief Operating Officer Triple H who answered questions on McMahon's involvement in the company this week.
WWE are on the verge of trouble according to several reports, and these difficult times could reflect badly upon Vince McMahon's net worth as losses continue for the wrestling company.
But tough times for WWE have not forced Vince McMahon to lose interest in the company. Instead, Triple H insists that the WWE boss is still active and engaged in the company.
"He's the most active person I know," Triple H explained. "He works at two in the morning because he's absolutely dedicated to driving himself and the executive team as hard as possible to create the best product as possible."
Whether WWE fans actually want Vince McMahon to be so actively involved is open for debate. Some love his character, but a growing section of fans are starting to become disillusioned with his continued over involvement, which includes pointlessly putting himself on the front of wrestling DVD covers.
It's likely that WWE fans will have to continue to accept McMahon's deep involvement in the company when you consider he still owns a substantial part of it himself.
Silence is the key
And in the past week, the WWE boss has been letting fans around the globe know a few of his trade secrets this past week.
McMahon spoke to WWE in a segment that reviewed Triple H and The Undertaker's silent staredown during WrestleMania XLVII, and the WWE boss revealed silence is a tactic he uses in business as well.
"Silence is a great tool in terms of getting someone's attention and entertaining if you have the right characters. So that was just a technique. By the way, it's used in negotiating very well, especially over telephone. 'Hello, Vince, you still there?' 'I'm here.' 'Well, what didn't you like about the terms and conditions I just laid out.' (silence) 'Vince, are you there?' (laughs) People become uncomfortable and they want to fill in all those blanks."
