Jim Ross was recently interviewed by Business Insider to discuss who he thinks will be Vince McMahon's successor in the WWE. Since taking over the company in 1982, Vince turned a territory-based promotion into the largest wrestling company in the world.
"I think that if I'm guessing, and it's gonna strictly be a guess, that the money would be on, probably, Paul Levesque to be Vince's successor. I think Vince is kind of preparing him for that in a lot of ways. You always knew that he was different from the other guys because he was very studious and very under control. He didn't drink. No drugs. He looked to be a lifer early on, and he got a lot of that from being a fan all his life, growing up in the northeast, New Hampshire. Then, getting trained by Killer Kowalski, who was a great old school guy. So, I think he's probably the heir apparent."
Triple H is currently the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events, and Creative, and runs the NXT promotion.
