Many wrestling fans continue to wonder what will happen when Vince McMahon’s days as the WWE Chairman are in the rearview mirror. His daughter, Stephanie, recently shared her thoughts on this eventuality.
In an appearance on the “Bloomberg Business of Sports” podcast, Stephanie McMahon stated that no individual will ever replace her father.
“I don’t think there will ever be a person-to-person replacement for Vince McMahon,” said Stephanie, courtesy of Jeremy Fuster of The Wrap. “He does too much. The landscape would look different however it shakes out.”
Stephanie also credited her father with his remarkable success in growing WWE into the global brand that it is today. She pointed to his strategic mindset in crafting a dominant empire in the professional wrestling industry, the likes of which the sport had never seen.
Say what you will about Vince McMahon, but it’s hard to disagree with the claim that he changed the history of professional wrestling.
