WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) is the largest professional wrestling franchise in the world.
The Franchise served as stepping stone to fame for well known celebrities like Hulk Hogan and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The chairman of WWE, Vince McMahon, took the once regional organization to a billion-dollar company today.
I think we can attribute the great success to his incredible work ethic. He has lived, breathed and sometimes blew WWE (according to Business Insider), both in the boardroom and on television.
Let’s look at 9 examples of Vince McMahon’s incredible work ethic.
1. He doesn’t believe in sickness
“Vince is a workaholic, and if anything gets in the way of his work, it makes him angry,” Lagana writes.
2. You can’t beat him into the office or outlast him at night
First car in, and last car out of the parking lot. Nobody has seen him leave or enter work. He never leaves the office.
3. He barely ever sleeps
“I don’t like to sleep,” McMahon says. “I’m missing something when I’m sleeping.”
4. He is still very active in the creative direction of the company
From the performers’ clothes to phrases that announcers say, he is known to micromanage everything.
5. Don’t even think about sneezing around him
“In my world, pal, there is no sneezing.”
6. He has almost no hobbies
“He just doesn’t have interest in nothing but wrestling,” Henry says. “And when you’re a billionaire and your sole interest is trying to become a multi-billionaire, then you don’t have time to just sit around and watch college football.”
7. He’s in incredible shape for someone his age
At age 60, he was featured on the cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine.
8. He’s even gotten into the ring
At age 67, he still jumps into the ring and gives the viewers a great show. People wonder why he’d put himself in harms way when there is no need to. That’s just the kind of person he is.
9. He started from the bottom and doesn’t believe in excuses
He started from selling paper cups to promoting wrestling matches in Maine. Now he is the chairman of a national entity.
