Vince McMahon made immense contributions to the pro wrestling business.

Dutch Mantell recently claimed that Vince McMahon possibly stopped caring about the product during his final months as WWE Chairman.

McMahon is arguably the most influential promoter and booker of all time, whose sharp business acumen has helped the industry gain mainstream recognition. After years of staying at the top as WWE's Chairman, Vince McMahon stepped down from his responsibilities in July amid a sea of controversy.

Since then, his daughter, Stephanie McMahon, and son-in-law, Triple H, have taken up the mantle of running the global juggernaut. Speaking on the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling's Smack Talk, Dutch Mantell discussed how HHH has turned around WWE's fortunes since assuming leadership.

Mantell added that Vince McMahon probably stopped giving a "cr*p" about anything during the end of his tenure since he might have been burnt out:

"He [Triple H] took his time and turned it around. Now it has so much positivity to it. And it just took a guy who understood the wrestling business and storytelling because I don't think Vince gave a cr*p. He was making his money, and he was, 'Hey, I'm on rest; you guys figure it out.'"

He explained that when someone does something for as long as McMahon did in WWE, they are bound to become tired and disinterested after a point.

"You do this for 50 years, and you get burned out," said Mantell. [13:42 - 14:35]

Dutch Mantell explained that when it came to taking suggestions from the creative team, he rarely accepted any:

"It's like an author writing the same books, and after a while, he's like, 'Hell, I can't just write no more. I don't even have the enthusiasm, the desire, I don't have the drive to write this stuff anymore, help me out.' And when they helped him out, he's like, 'I don't like this sh*t; get out of here,'" added Mantell. [14:36 - 14:55]
