On this week’s edition of Bischoff on Wrestling, Eric addressed the possibility of Vince McMahon ever selling WWE.
This topic came up after McMahon mentioned in a conference call that he would, in fact, sell WWE if he was presented an offer “he could not refuse.” Since the conference call, fans and journalist alike have pondered the thought of a Vince-less WWE.
Bischoff mentioned that he does not believe Vince would actually sell the WWE.
“Vince has to say that. He’s the Chairman of the Board of a publicly traded company,” Eric said. “If you’re an investor, you’d like to know if the guy calling the shots would be willing to entertain an offer that would get you a nice return on your investment. That’s why you invest.” Eric, then, goes on to mention that he knows deep down that McMahon would never sell his company.
All things considered, it’s hard to imagine that this wasn’t McMahon simply saving face. If this past year has shown us anything, it’s that Vince’s way is the only way. The Roman Reigns WrestleMania push was, in itself, the epitome of McMahon doing what he wanted- no matter the feedback he received in return. It’s hard to imagine a situation in which someone with an ego that big letting go of the thing he’s spent his whole life building. Of course, it would not be too much of a stretch to believe that Paul Levesque would one day be in charge of WWE, but, even then, the company would stay in the McMahon family.
