There's never been a better time for Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, to take control of the WWE. Vince McMahon is embroiled in a hush-money scandal where he paid an ex-employee $3 million from sexual misconduct allegations. As a result, McMahon stepped aside as CEO, leaving the door open for new management.
Of course, that led to Stephanie McMahon taking over. But she's been known to clash with top executives, making her an unlikable choice in the locker room. That's why Triple H makes for an obvious choice, for it's what would be... say it with me, class... best for business.
But that raises another question: is Vince McMahon done for? Obviously, the boss's ego is extremely inflated, which wouldn't be an easy oust. After all, he's still in control of creative decisions. However, the board might overthrow him as CEO, paving the way for either Stephanie or HHH to take over.
In any case, this has been a long time coming. With the advent of another professional wrestling company (AEW), declining ratings, and a failure to fill up seats for live events, it seems fair to say that WWE must head in a new direction.
This will certainly be the case if the impending investigations reveal some daunting information. McMahon's had a legacy of exuding horny energy, with him featuring raunchy makeout sessions with numerous WWE divas. He even made Trish Stratus strip down to her thong in the ring! This man can't be trusted!
Whatever happens, WWE and its fans know something needs to change. That starts with addressing the old guard. It might be time for Vince McMahon to step back and stay out of the mix for good.
