Vincent Kennedy McMahon (born August 24, 1945) is an American professional wrestling promoter and executive, American football executive, and media proprietor.
Triple H revealed the ridiculous routine that Vince McMahon followed in his own life.
“He (Vince McMahon) is a machine. It’s hard sometimes when you talk about it, because people are like, ‘That can’t be good for him, he’s getting older.’ It does not bother him. Probably given the circumstances, he’s sleeping more than he ever has, just because of the travel and the way things are, it’s a lot less than it used to be. I don’t know if he missed a day at the office. He is still at the office every single day even when there’s no one there. He still trains everyday. If you go to the office and go downstairs at one or two in the morning, he’s probably in there training. That’s what keeps him going. He eats incredibly well. He’s a very routine and disciplined person, so his diet is on, all those things are there. I think it’s hard for people to understand when people are driven to do something. This is his passion still to this day, he’s the most passionate person about WWE that I know. He will do it.”
Triple H went on to talk about what Vince McMahon was like outside WWE as a grandfather to Triple H and Stephanie‘s children.
“He’s (Vince McMahon) awesome. He’s busy and he works all the time. Vince is a funny guy, he will work and do all the things. But if he needs to be there for something for somebody family-wise or anything else, he’s the guy that is right there. He is there for the things that they need to do, he’s there for their events or moments. Whether it’s by phone or whether in person or whatever, he’s there and he wants to have a good time with them. He’s an observer. He likes to sit and watch them do things that kids do.”
Plenty of stories have been shared about McMahon’s ridiculous work ethic and the ruthless business practices he’s deployed en-route to the top.
But what exactly does an average day look like for the boss? That’s a topic Arn Anderson discussed recently on the ARN Podcast.
The former WWE agent explained that McMahon ‘lives in his own bubble’ and streamlines his day to get the most out of it.
“He kind of functions in his own bubble. It probably goes something like this,” Anderson began.
“Now, I’m not saying this is a bad thing. You judge it, but [he’s] got a gym in his house, gets up early in the morning, gets a workout.
“[Then he] has a limo pick him up to take him to the airport. [He] walks up the steps to a private plane, goes to the town, gets out of the limo, goes straight to the building, straight to his office.”
Once McMahon arrives at the venue – in whatever town WWE are running shows that night – he gets down to business.
“From his office, he goes straight into the meeting room where he’ll spend most of the afternoon,” Anderson continued.
“He’ll go straight to gorilla. When it’s time, shows over. [He goes] straight to another limo, straight to the private plane.
“[He goes] to the next town, straight to the hotel that they’re staying at, comfy hotel. [Then] around three or four in the morning, he’ll go to the gym again.
“To the next morning, repeat. That’s pretty much the day and the life of Vince McMahon, I think.”
Absolutely crazy. Anderson is yet another person confirming the suggestion that McMahon works out every morning.
Obviously, Vince is still very hands-on with the production of WWE too, so his average day just sounds exhausting.
