• Backstage Executive Thinks Vince McMahon Will Run WWE For Another 30 Years
Vince McMahon is 76 years old and he has been running the WWF/WWE for 40 years now.
Some fans want Vince to step down and give the control of his company to someone else, like Triple H.
However, it doesn’t look like that will happen as long as Vince is alive.
According to WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard (who is currently a Senior Vice President in WWE and the Executive Director of RAW & SmackDown), Vince could run the WWE for another 30 years.
Below is what he said on his podcast:
“Yeah, I can’t imagine him not doing it and I am sure that he will continue to do it probably for the next 25 to 30 years.
His mom is 101 (years old) and still going so, you know, he shows no signs of slowing down at all.”
