The right person to run WWE in the future is Shane McMahon, says former WWE Superstar JTG.
JTG is a former WWE star that was part of the popular tag team Cryme Tyme with the late Shad Gaspard. Over the last couple of years, there have been rumors of WWE possibly selling the company due to so many superstars being released even though WWE is making record profits due to their impressive TV deals.
During a recent with AJ Singh on The Wrassingh Show, JTG spoke about how he wants WWE to stay in the McMahon family while adding that Shane is the right guy for the job.
“I hope [WWE won’t be sold]. I hope the rumours are not true. I’d like to see the WWE stay in the McMahon family! Yeah, if it was up to me, if it was just my personal opinion… I would love to have Shane McMahon in charge. When I was there, Shane, his energy and what he brought to the table – I think he’ll do WWE [justice]. He’ll keep the legacy alive!”
JTG added that have one person in charge (like Vince McMahon currently is) would be better than having two people running the couple like the married couple of Paul Levesque aka Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
“I would just like to see the legacy continue on. You know, it was from Vince McMahon Senior to Vince McMahon, and I think that Shane solo would do great. Because when you have Stephanie and Triple H, those are two minds. You got two cooks in the kitchen, right? I think, Shane… I think if he was just the captain. I think he would do a great job as the the new chairman of the WWE.”
It’s worth that WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon turned 76 years old last month. While Vince McMahon has ran WWE for 40 years, he can’t do it forever even though he is in great health.
The debut of NXT 2.0 took place last night with a different look and feel to it. While NXT has been run by Triple H for most of the last decade, Vince and Bruce Prichard are said to have a major influence over the NXT brand going forward. JTG gave his opinion on what NXT should be like.
“For NXT, I only get the information from social media, and I hear news from my peers and other fans. It seems like NXT is doing a good job right now, but I don’t think [it should be called a developmental brand]. When something is called a developmental… that give you the liberty and freedom to make mistakes and try things out!”
JTG is 36-years-old and continues to wrestle for promotions like the NWA as well as various indy companies around the world.
