There’s no denying Vince McMahon’s impact on the wrestling world. It’s clear that WWE wouldn’t be where it is today without the 76-year-old.
Vince turned WWE into the global juggernaut that we know and love today, and he’s earned a lot of supporters as a result.
One of those supporters is John Cena, who Vince gave his start to when he walked onto WWE’s main roster in 2002.
Vince turned Cena into one of wrestling’s biggest ever stars, setting up the 16-time World Champion to transition into Hollywood, which he’s now done.
Cena appeared at Comic-Con in Wales over the weekend, where he was asked by a fan to name his WWE Mount Rushmore.
John gave a rather surprising answer too, explaining that he wouldn’t be naming four people, as is tradition with a Mount Rushmore, and would only name one.
Cena explained that he’d change things up and have a one-person Mount Rushmore, and would give that honour to Vince McMahon, via WrestleTalk.
That’s a great question. I would change the monument, right. I would make it a one-person statue, and the face would be Vince McMahon.
You can say what you want about Vince McMahon, but it’s clear that a lot of people working for WWE feel an enormous debt of gratitude to the ex-WWE Chairman, and Cena is seemingly one of those people.
Vince retired from WWE last month, giving up his active responsibilities as Chairman, CEO and Head of Creative.
Taking over as Chairwoman was Stephanie McMahon, who also now serves as the company’s co-CEO alongside Nick Khan, who was brought in to be WWE’s President by Vince.
As for the Head of Creative role, that’s been given to Triple H, a decision that has left many WWE fans excited about the future of Raw and SmackDown shows.
There was a conspiracy theory circulating which suggested that Vince was still running WWE, but two new reports, which you can read by clicking here, have totally shut that idea down.
Speaking of Mount Rushmores, in an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport, WWE Superstar Butch (formerly Pete Dunne) excluded the likes of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin from his, which you can also read by clicking here.
