To all WWE Superstars: as I approach 77 years old (OMG am I really that old?), I feel it’s time for me to retire. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing my passion, wisdom, and love of the business with you. No longer will you see the smiling, docile, level-headed, calm presence at Gorilla every week.
Your dedication to WWE will ensure that our company will continue to grow and prosper. Our organization is nothing without you. You are WWE’s only natural resource, chosen to perform in front of a global audience.
You are all WWE Global Ambassadors. Carry the WWE flag wherever you go. Wave it high and proud. And bust your ass to be all you can be as a person and as a performer.
One other thing-I won’t be with you, but I’ll be watching. Remember to keep your hands up, grab a hold, and sell. Btw, SmackDown airs live tonight at 8pm Eastern/7pm Central on FOX.
As noted, Vince McMahon announced his retirement from the company at the age of 77. Vince is no longer the WWE Chairman & CEO of the company he built into a global entertainment juggernaut.
Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan have been named the new co-CEOs of WWE. Stephanie will also work as the Chairwoman of the company.
Vince reportedly made the decision to retire “about a week or so ago”. One source said the final decision was made privately around 10 days ago. The decision was then made to put Stephanie and Khan into the co-CEO role shortly after Vince’s retirement was decided on.
