Vince McMahon Planning To Live Until He's 120
Vince McMahon isn't planning to die anytime soon
Vince McMahon isn't planning to die until 2065, with the TKO Group Executive Chairman telling Kurt Angle in 2017 that he planned to live until he is 120 years old.
While discussing the WWE-UFC merger on the Joe Rogan Experience, Kurt Angle said:
"I love the guy. He's always treated me right. I never had a problem with Vince. I'm glad he got the money he got. I never thought he would sell the company. I thought you would have to pry it from his cold dead hands. I thought he would keep the company forever. He put his heart and soul into it. No one works harder than he does. He's a machine. You know what he told me when I came back to WWE? He said, 'I'm going to have this company for a lot longer than you think, Mr. Angle. I'm 73 right now. My mom lived to be 101. I plan on living until I'm 120. I'm never letting the company go. I'm always going to work here. They're going to have to pry it from my cold dead hands.' That's what keeps him going. That's why I'm a little, not nervous, but what's he going to do now? His life is wrestling."
The WWE-UFC merger under TKO Group Holdings was officially completed on Tuesday, September 12. The deal ended Vince McMahon's majority ownership of WWE, although he now owns 16 percent of TKO.
McMahon still remains heavily involved with the day-to-day operations of WWE, especially when it comes to the company's TV product. Triple H is officially the head of creative but Vince McMahon retains the final say over WWE creative and he is able to change anything he wishes.
