He’s Vince McMahon, a third generation promoter who will likely go down in history as the most successful promoter in the history of professional wrestling. His singular vision took advantage of the changes taking place in television during the early 1980’s, taking wrestling from a local product to an international phenomenon. He signed the biggest stars of their time to come compete together on this large platform, leading to the industry standard that is Wrestlemania. He has also been on-screen as a play-by-play commentator, interviewer, and even as a wrestler himself. His behind-the-scenes responsibilities are slowly being pulled back as he passes on responsibilities to his daughter Stephanie and son-in-law Paul “HHH” Levesque, continuing the McMahon wrestling legacy into the fourth generation.

Naturally, by getting to the top he’s made enemies and gained detractors, but absolutely no one can deny the unprecedented success that the man has earned, and the indelible mark he will leave on professional wrestling.
