• “He will run WWE until they bury him” – AEW Personality On Vince McMahon
During the Q/A session of Grilling JR, AEW commentator Jim Ross talked about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon’s age and if he thinks he’ll slow down at work.
Below is what he said:
“He’s not a spring chicken like the rest of us in that generation. We all have to face up to the fact that we’re mortal and aging affects people differently. The thing about Vince at his age, he’s still working like he’s 25 years old, he doesn’t stop. He only works in days ending in Y and he has no time limits, there’s no requirements.
You wonder sometimes how intense he is, as busy as he is, the responsibilities he has running a massive publicly traded company if it’s getting to be too much. I don’t know the answer to that question. I’m a lot more concerned about his health than him being able to run the company.
He will run the company until they bury him. I don’t think he will ever sell the company. I don’t think he’ll ever slow down to any large degree, that’s just not in his makeup. If he did, he would not be happy. I fully believe all people should strive to find their happy place and his happy place is working. It’s always been that way.
I think that’s one of the things that’s made the company so successful. Vince’s unrelenting work ethic. Nobody in WWE has ever worked as hard as the owner. Nobody. He has no hobbies, he goes to the gym and he works. That’s it.
The only thing I’m concerned about is Vince’s health. I wish him the best, he helped me a lot along the way no doubt, but you wonder sometimes are you doing what needs to be done or what you’re forcing yourself to do? It’s almost like an obsession with him to work.”
