Many people within the wrestling circle have speculated that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon will take over WWE when Vince McMahon eventually decides to step down or passes away, but that may not be the case.
Speaking on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed that Shane McMahon may be getting an MBA, as he revealed on Raw last night, to prepare himself to take over his father’s company:
“Maybe he wants to run the company. The one thing why Triple H can’t run the company is because he doesn’t have the degree. I remember years ago when we were all talking (about) the succession plan, I was talking with one of the minority owners of the company and it’s like ‘what happens if Vince dies?’.
“The whole thing is like ‘it can’t be Paul (Triple H) because he doesn’t have the (degree)’. This is weird. Shane did run his own company. Now, he ran it into the ground, he was unbelievably unsuccessful with that Chinese pay-per-view company, but sometimes, as we’ve seen many times in wrestling, being an absolute complete and total failure at your job gets you higher than somebody who’s never had experience even though they’re like 10 times smarter than you at the same type of job. There’s how many people are producers in WWE, I don’t even know how many. And probably 75% of them, if not more, are gonna be smarter than some of the people they have hired to run this thing and have miserably failed. And you would know that because they’ve miserably failed over and over and over again. But, it’s almost like being a failure is a good thing on your resumé because at least it’s on your resumé.
“So Shane failing in that business miserably, horribly, perhaps, between that and getting an MBA, maybe he’s gonna be considered a good person (to run WWE after Vince). I don’t think so, I think he’s just taking it because he wants… who knows? Who knows why?”

While Meltzer is certainly NOT reporting that Shane McMahon is 100% going to be taking over from Vince McMahon, but it’s a possibility that is certainly worth considering.
