WWE boss Vince McMahon will leave wrestling empire to Triple H and NOT kids Shane and Stephanie when he quits – The Sun

VINCE MCMAHON will NOT leave WWE to his children Stephanie or Shane – and is already training Triple H to take over the reigns.

That is the view of legendary wrestling commentator Jim Ross, who has tipped the billionaire's son-in-law to add ownership of Raw and SmackDown to his NXT portfolio.

McMahon, 75, has run the global juggernaut that is WWE since taking over from his father back in 1982.

The American business icon remains the company's chairman and CEO, and he also occasionally appears on TV as his "Mr. McMahon" character.

Vince's daughter Stephanie and her husband Triple H are now the power couple of WWE in their respective roles of Chief Brand officer and Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy and Development.

Hall of Famer Jim Ross believes The Game – real name Paul Levesque – is the heir apparent with Shane McMahon content with his on-screen role.

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

He told Business Insider back in 2018: "I have an opinion on where the company will go. I will say this — you know, Vince is very healthy.

"He still works out like a crazy man. He really takes care of himself. So, he ain't going anywhere soon. We don't want him to go anywhere soon. He's the rock that built that thing. He's the rudder in the water. It's an amazing company.

"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.

"Stephanie is very involved and, you know, is really more of a face of WWE. She does a lot of charity work. And she's great at that. And you've got to have that in that world.

"I think Shane seems to be, apparently, content with being a TV character. I don't know where his role's gonna be going forward or what he wants it to be.

"But, I think that Paul Levesque is the one that seems to be earmarked to be the next guy, if and when Vince is not in that role."
