Vincent McMahon, Jr. is the current Chairman and CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (“WWE”). His father, Vincent McMahon, Sr., was a wrestling promoter. McMahon expanded the wrestling business into what it is today – a multimedia, multi-national corporate enterprise. His current net worth is estimated to be $750 million.
His children, Stephanie McMahon (Photo by Megan Elice Meadows) and Shane McMahon, are personalities in the family wrestling business. Though Shane has apparently resigned from WWE, Stephanie McMahon is the Chief Brand Officer (CBO).
Vince’s wife, Linda Marie McMahon, spent zillions of dollars running for United States Senate in Connecticut in 2010 and 2012. She was pinned by Richard Blumenthal (D. Conn.) 6’1″ 190 lbs. and Chris Murphy (D. Conn.) 5’10”, 175 lbs., respectively. (Photo by Linda McMahon)
In the WWE storyline, the Executives for the “bad guys” (Triple H and Stephanie McMahon) are known as “The Authority.”
They hire and fire the wrestlers, and schedule matches based on what is “best for business.” So, the Fake Executives make Fake Decisions about the Fake Wrestling matches. (Photo by Megan Elice Meadows).
