Over the last four decades, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon conquered the world of sports entertainment. His company fought off nearly every competitor that attempted to unseat it, and WWE’s victory can all be traced back to one man: McMahon. Not only does McMahon oversee the business and marketing affairs of the publicly-traded company, he also gives the final sign-off when it comes to the product’s creative direction.
We talked to Jeff Ashworth, editor of“The WWE Official Book of Rules,” which was written by Jeremy Brown, Trevor Courneen, and Carlos Mejia and illustrated by Nick Harran. Ashworth worked as a digital writer for WWE from 2009 to 2012, and he offers unique insight into how hands-on McMahon is in what seems to be every aspect of WWE as a company.
