Vince McMahon Wants The “Glory” For WWE Sale

It would seem there are those who feel Vince McMahon is cashing in whilst the going is good, and will get the “glory” when WWE is sold.

The drama surrounding both the resignation and return of Vince McMahon in WWE has been well documented. From the allegations made against the former Chairman to reports he has come back to head up a sale of the company, McMahon continues to be a polarising figure in the wrestling industry.

There have reportedly been plenty of suitors if WWE does end up getting sold, and the figure for a company of this size would clearly be substantial. However, Jim Cornette feels that McMahon is specifically targeting a sale now rather than waiting too much longer.

In a discussion on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the legendary manager and promoter noted that Vince McMahon would get the “glory” for a sale now, rather than waiting for five years when the price of the company would likely have diminished.

I’ll say right now he wants the big check, and he wants to be responsible for the sale and he wants to take the glory at this point. I think he may realise that it’s coming to an end one way or the other. Because here’s the thing, would Vince rather run the company for another five years and only get $2 billion for it then? Or would he rather get five or 6 billion now?

It’s the total on the tote board for Vince, he would consider that a bigger win that if he ran it longer and got less. He really would, he would consider he did a better job. So it wouldn’t be like I know I failed, it’d be like I’m doing a better job by doing this now, it’s the conditions of the world and the rights fees and everything. Now’s the time.

It has also been reported that there are plenty of WWE superstars who are worried now Vince McMahon has returned to the company.
