- A new report suggests there is some concern internally about who would take control of World Wrestling Entertainment if something were to happen to Vince McMahon. This comes in the wake of recent rumors that AMC Networks is interested in acquiring WWE, although investors don’t believe McMahon would be willing to sell the company.
The consensus is that Paul Levesque (Triple H) would not be a legitimate candidate to take over the role as CEO of a public company. While Levesque’ knowledge of the wrestling business is held in esteem, his actual management experience, including non-wrestling obligations that a CEO would need to take on, are lacking the necessary expertise. The other obvious candidate, Stephanie McMahon, has reportedly taken a step back from executive duties recently.
With that in mind, this would leave current WWE executives Michelle Wilson and George Barrios as the front runners, however there are concerns linked to each. Neither have much knowledge of the wrestling industry, and Barrios in particular isn’t familiar with the modern media landscape.
