One of the greatest workaholics that WWE has ever seen in its rings, is definitely its patron, or the Chairman of the entire company: Vince McMahon. If every now and then the wrestlers and the insiders take a break, a vacation or a simple weekend off, Vince McMahon is the only person who never skips any tapings, no shows or no PPV if it's not really a question.
of life or death, with the tremendous dedication to work that Vince puts into his craft, which has made WWE the number-one pro-wrestling company in the world, surpassing any other federation of competition, which now cannot even be compared to the greatness of the Stamford federation.
In the latest episode of his podcast, Grilling JR, the Stamford company's Hall of Famer, Jim Ross, the legendary voice of the Monday Night Raw commentary table, who for years also served as Director of Relations with WWE talents, he wanted to think about the current situation of his former employer, going to worry about a person who is now well past 70 years, but who still continues to work as when he was 30, with the AEW commentator who has in fact stated: "Do you think every now and then about how intense and how demanding it is to have his responsibilities, which are to carry on such a large company, which also has public implications? In my opinion, it is starting to be a bit too much.
I can't get a real answer to this question. I'm much more concerned about his health and that he can still lead the company, but he will continue like this until they bury him."
Vince McMahon’s on-screen WWE role
According to the historian commentator Jim Ross, Vince McMahon will continue to fulfill his obligations until his death, something of which many other insiders are also certain, who know Vince very well.
Over the years, the WWE patron has in fact proven to be able to continue working even in the most difficult situations, such as bereavement, injury or illness. Apparently, Vince McMahon would be the true hero of the WWE, with the many characters he brings on-screen who do not have the willpower that the Chairman himself puts into everyday life to carry on a huge company that has become so great especially for his work.
While Jim Ross does not think Vince McMahon will slow down behind the scenes, the same cannot be said for his on-screen WWE character. Former SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff revealed in October 2020 that Vince McMahon did not want to appear on SmackDown’s debut episode on FOX.
According to Bischoff, Vince McMahon realizes that, due to his age, his strength and credibility as a character is not what it used to be. In the end, Stephanie McMahon convinced her father to appear on television that night.
