As reported before, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is on the cover of the March edition of the Muscle & Fitness Magazine in the United States.
The magazine dedicated eight pages to McMahon, which also includes a question and answer interview, McMahon’s workout routine, and a couple of impressive photos as well.
McMahon recounted a funny story about how he once trained with Mark Henry and the world’s strongest man could not keep up with him. “Psychologically I pretty much decimated him on that last giant set. I almost felt sorry for him but he challenged me,” McMahon said, adding that Henry did start lifting an hour before him so his “energy and enthusiasm hand waned considerably.”
McMahon also talked about getting in the ring with Bret Hart and Steve Austin, creating the Mr. McMahon character, his fitness and nutrition regimen, the WWE gym, and much more.
When asked about what he thinks his legacy will be, the chairman said, “I don’t look at myself as having a legacy in entertainment, and quite frankly I don’t care. It doesn’t matter what I think, it’s what people perceive. I’m not good at patting myself on the back. I want to be known as a loving father and grandfather. And if I’m lucky, a great-grandfather. And I’m the luckiest man in the world without question, so it might happen.”
McMahon also said that the future of WWE from a corporate standpoint is very strong and Stephanie and Triple H will have big roles going forward. He added that when he retires or dies, “the organization is going to change, and I think for the better, because there’s no one person who can do all that I can do because of my background. There’s no one individual who’s going to take my place.”
