• Hall Of Famer Says Triple H & Stephanie McMahon Should Run WWE
Old School WWF play-by-play commentator Jim Ross was interviewed on the Sports Illustrated Media podcast and they talked about what would happen if WWE ever gets sold.
We previously reported that after several WWE releases in recent months, rumors started that Vince McMahon might consider selling the company (but would obviously keep enough shares to still stay in power).
Here’s what J.R. said about a potential sale:
“Let’s say it sells. It has to be sold with the thought in mind that there are people in place to run it. It’s a unique genre and takes a special breed, background, and desire to make it work.
Our audience now with social media are more educated. Wrestling fans have something to carry their flag around and people are paying attention in a great way. If I were going to sell WWE, who better to run it than Triple H and his wife? The DNA is there, the experience, Vince has given them a great opportunity to have more experience in upper management.
The key thing is talent and television. One without the other doesn’t make any money. If they do sell, it’d be a huge win for all involved, especially the family. It’s no guarantee that if they sell, Triple H and Stephanie have to find new jobs. I assume they’ll be running it.”
