Jim Cornette: “Nobody’s Qualified to Replace Vince McMahon”

Vince McMahonDuring a recent interview conducted for Power Slam Magazine, former WWE, TNA and current Ring of Honor personality Jim Cornette had the following to say about a post-Vince McMahon WWE:

Nobody's qualified to replace McMahon. Vince is one of a kind, a guy who will never come along again.

Triple H is a student of the business, but he's still got his own little quirks. He's Vince's son-in-law, and he's being groomed for the spot because he thinks in large part like Vince McMahon in terms of what a star is supposed to look like: a jacked-up bodybuilder. So, some things are not going to change. He's probably going to bring a more youthful approach to it, although [Triple H is] in his early 40s. So, he's not exactly youthful—but Vince is 66.

So, no: nobody's qualified to replace Vince. [Triple H] might do an okay job. But, personally, I think when General Patton [Vince] passes on, I think they're in trouble. [WWE is] always going to exist because they have a lot of money in the bank and they've grown into such a global company, but I don't think there's going to be any giant ground broken or revolutionary things done after Vince is gone.
