Concern Over Triple H Taking Over For Vince McMahon

Many within WWE were surprised when Triple H used the term “hijack” on TV because Vince McMahon would “never” have used that term on air, especially after it was being used all over the internet going into this week’s edition of RAW in Chicago, IL.

According to a source in WWE, the biggest concern regarding Vince McMahon eventually stepping down and Triple H taking over is that Triple H would let the internet “get to him.”

As noted earlier, WWE CFO George Barrios recently spoke to Business Week about the current negotiations the company is working on to establish a new cable television partner.

“We think we’ll be able to announce a new domestic rights partner at the end of April or beginning of May,” said Barrios.

He also noted that WWE is in negotiations with a number of different parties, but would not specify who they are.

Barrios spoke about the WWE stock rising this week, noting that the company is not in merger discussions, and that the stock is rising based on speculation about a boost in their cable rights fees, as well as the launch of the WWE Network.

    If that is the biggest concern about Triple H the company is worse off than I imagines.

    Triple HHH taking over is the only hope of WWE ever being saved from this garbage that keeps getting worse and worse

    One thing has been proven – WWE is set up with all these contracts with stores and toy companies – so PG is here to stay.

    In other words – it will be no different if Levesque takes over -no different at all.

    If anything, even worse.

    Give it back to VInce. He is visionary.
