Kane: Triple H Is The One Person Who Can Take WWE Higher & Further
HHH has often been touted as Vince's successor
WWE Hall Of Famer Kane has named Triple H as the one person who has the mind to take WWE 'even higher and even further'.
Speculation has often turned to who could replace Vince McMahon as the Chairman of WWE should the time come when he either gives up the position or passes away. Many believed Triple H was being groomed for the position, following his influence in NXT, although some feel that now might have changed given the altercations to WWE's developmental brand.
While Kane isn't sure what the future holds for WWE, the Big Red Machine reckons Triple H has the mind to take WWE up another level.
Speaking on The Doug Collins Podcast, when asked if he thinks Triple H will be the successor to McMahon, Kane said: "You know, I don't know, actually. I'm not close enough to the company to say that right now.
"I think as companies mature, you become more risk-averse. Because you want to keep what you have and you're afraid of losing that. Unfortunately, the downside is you become less aggressive and you don't have that growth just because of where you're at. I think you kind of see some of that, and that's not a criticism, that just is what it is, and that's the kind of lifecycle of an organization. So a lot of stuff as Vince gets older, I think things will change, for better or worse, I don't know.
"A lot of folks lament, especially some of the wrestlers, how the company's become much more corporate, but it had to, I mean, in this day and age, that's just how things work. So you see these natural changes and then you see a change in leadership, I don't know what's going to happen.
"Triple H, I think. has an amazing mind for the wrestling industry. If I were to say, you know, one person that could really take the company and take it even higher and even further, it would be him. I think he's just got that kind of talent. He's a genius at this stuff. You know, so but we'll see what the future holds, certainly."
