5 Reasons Why Vince McMahon Won’t Let Triple H Take Over Anytime Soon
#4 No turning back
Vince McMahon has experimented with delegating responsibilities to different parties, particularly as WWE has grown and developed a more bureaucratic corporate structure. Putting Triple H in charge of Talent Relations was, in itself, a big step, but Helmsley was stepping into a role others like Jim Ross and John Laurinaitis had filled ahead of him. Giving The Game the charge to start and lead a new developmental system added a layer, and indeed felt like a step toward grooming him to take over creative at large. Trusting The Game to make the most of 205 Live was another step in this direction.
For now, though, there’s always the potential to walk things back. If Triple H were prove incompetent or not up to the pressure in the long term, make a major gaffe, or perhaps most personally have a falling out with Stephanie McMahon, it wouldn’t be too late demote him. Once McMahon steps away from the business, the odds are that he’s out, and the people in charge won’t have a responsibility to listen to his input, let alone reinstate him to power.
