It is well known how powerful Vince McMahon has become not just in wrestling, but in entertainment. Many of his ventures, short of the XFL, have resulted in financial success for the McMahon family.
McMahon became a pioneer in the wrestling industry, and many promoters since the mid-1980s have tried to emulate his style, only to come up short. At the start of the 2000s, the last main competitor to the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment), World Championship Wrestling, finally succumbed to the financial measures needed to maintain credibility within the circles of wrestling.
Once McMahon bought WCW, much of the flair and rivalry of competing brands seemed to disappear. Sure, it was nice to see WCW stars appear on Monday Night Raw, but that story line could only last so long. The "invasion" angle infused a little bit of life into our wrestling, but as the WCW stars slowly made their way to TNA or any other promotion, we got back to the regular brand of WWE superstars.
As I read the stories being written across the Internet about wrestling lacking that spark, it makes me wonder if Vince would ever sell the company that has been attached to his family for so many years. As I write this, I know that he is lining up the company so that he can one day hand it over to his daughter, Stephanie, and her husband, Triple H.
But, what if he did sell? Would these reasons be legitimate in the eyes of Vincent Kennedy McMahon?
