WWE: Triple H says nobody will take Vince McMahon's role

Vince McMahon has faced plenty of criticism this year after a raft of mistakes forced the WWE universe to voice their concerns.

The decision to start a subscription-based video streaming service has not gone down well, with McMahon falling well short of the subscription figures he wanted for the WWE Network.

Losing popular wrestler CM Punk in an acrimonious exit has not helped WWE fans opinion of McMahon, and as you can imagine, the decision to cut WWE's 2014 budget by $20 million and the firing of a raft of wrestlers has not gone down well.

Not interested McMahon role

Then there is the criticism that WWE's rookie programme if you will, NXT, is actually better than the product on Raw and SmackDown. As a result, there has been plenty of speculation that suggests Vince McMahon will step down from his position sooner rather than later. But Triple H, the man ultimately solely responsible for the ever improving product on NXT, explained in an interview with Sam Roberts this week that he is not interested in taking over the reigns from Vince McMahon.

"Nobody is ever going to take Vince's spot. Because one, he'll probably out live all of us. He's like a cockroach, he'll survive the nuclear holocaust and be the only one left," Triple H explained in an interview with Sam Roberts.

Enjoying his role 

Rather than have his eyes on McMahon's role in WWE, HHH says he gets more of a kick out of seeing new superstars come through the ranks.

"For me, just to be a part of the business is the biggest goal of mine. I have always loved the creative component as much as I dug everything else. Now for me I get as much excitement out of things like when Bray [Wyatt] first came up and we put him out on TV and he was this instant success and I felt like his proud dad.

"Just to see that and be a part of that helping him get there was so cool. I always enjoy that part of the process. Did I ever think it would lead to me taking Vince's spot as some people say? But nobody will ever replace Vince."
