Vince McMahon is the hardest working man in the history of the WWE. Although over the years he has taken a step back in the amount of work he does on a daily basis, he's still heavily involved in the product.

Even though he's unlikely to go anywhere anytime soon, Vince is reaching the latter stages of his status as WWE Chairman and CEO, so someone else will eventually have to take over control of the company.

WWE fans have been weighing up the options for many years now and the option which many of them reach is Triple H because of his relationship with many superstars in the company and the work which he has done down in NXT.

Jim Ross was recently interviewed by Business Insider to discuss who he thinks will be McMahon's successor in the WWE. He too believes The Game would be a perfect choice and he also thinks Vince has been preparing him for the role in many ways.

He said: "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."

Always different

J.R. added from early on it looked like Triple H would be with the WWE for life because of the lifestyle he leads and the passion which he had for the business.

"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."

It definitely feels like Triple H is on the right path to be Vince's successor in the WWE with his work with superstars and NXT. However, as previously mentioned, it doesn't look like Vince will be giving up his role anytime soon, which is also good to hear.
