Vince McMahon Early Career
McMahon became interested in following his father’s footsteps when he was just 12 years old after seeing his father grind as a promoter for the Capitol Wrestling Corporation.
He regularly accompanied his father during the 70s becoming a massive force in the rapidly developing company.
However, the promotion grew in leaps and bounds only after McMahon slowly began gaining full control of his father’s ventures. In 1980, McMahon founded Titan Sports and established headquarters in Massachusetts.
McMahon then purchased the WWF which was run in bits and pieces by various regional promotions.
In just a matter of time, he began turning WWF from a regional promotion to a global phenomenon. McMahon roped in notable wrestlers like Hulk Hogan.
Towards the end of the year, WrestleMania 3 hosted in 1987 brought in a staggering crowd of almost 95000.
By the 90s, WWF had become a monopoly. There was no other promotion that could challenge the might of McMahon’s empire. In 1999, WWF went public with its first IPO.
Two years later McMahon purchased the dying WCW from Turner Broadcasting System.
Vince McMahon WWE Career
In the year 2002, the WWF underwent a name change to WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
The promotion then established two well-distinguished brands WWE RAW and WWE SmackDown (which has been immensely successful until today).
In the year 2010, WWE established NXT which focused on rookies trying to make it big in the pro-wrestling scene.
McMahon who was the mastermind behind all these, regularly appears on his shows as well. He also was an occasional professional wrestler. McMahon usually depended on interferences and the help of other wrestlers to win matches whenever he took part.
McMahon surprisingly ended up winning the 1999 Royal Rumble.
McMahon once fought (represented by respective wrestlers) former USA President Donald Trump in a match dubbed the ‘Battle of the Billionaires’. Trump (Lashley beat Umaga) ended up being the winner, and Vince McMahon had his hair shaved as a result.
2022 turned out to be a bad year for Vince after several past cases of sexual misconduct arose against him. The allegations were so severe and grave that he stepped down from his position as the CEO. His daughter Stephanie McMahon took over the role temporarily. Although even after stepping down from the position, he kept making televised appearances until July 23, 2022, when he finally retired from his brain-child organization, WWE.
