There is no question that Vince McMahon changed the landscape of the wrestling business when he took control of WWE in the early ’80s. Since then he has built a multi-billion dollar company and has helped launch the careers of some of the biggest stars in the world namely The Rock and John Cena, who has made the transition from the ring to the big screen. But as with all good things, it will eventually come to an end.
It has been a question on many fans’ minds as to who would be Mr. Mcmahon’s successor. Many assumed that either his son Shane, or his daughter Stephanie.. but the most obvious choice that fans would often go to would be that of his son-in-law Triple H. But now according to Dave Meltzer that may not be the case.
During a most recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer noted that McMahon’s replacement will most likely be Nick Khan. Khan is the current President and Chief Revenue Officer of WWE.
“I mean it’s kind of a Board of Directors thing, but probably (Nick Khan would replace Vince McMahon), yeah. Unless they went and hired somebody else from the outside, but probably Nick Khan, yes.”
Over the past two years, Nick Khan has become a very big influence within the company and has overseen some of the biggest changes in the company including the number of mass releases and the rebranding of the NXT brand.
