Vince McMahon is one of the most powerful personalities in the professional wrestling industry. He has been with WWE, then known as WWWF, since the 1970s. he had started off his career as a commentator for the company, which was then owned by his father Vincent J. McMahon. He bought the company from his father in 1982 and had managed to monopolize the industry.
McMahon has been at the helm of affairs since the last four decades and has managed to make WWE a global brand. Today the WWE shows are available in over 900 million homes worldwide. Since the last couple of years, WWE was dominating the industry, until the arrival of All Elite Wrestling.
But managing such a massive business for such a long period of time is not a piece of cake. Vince McMahon has often come under severe criticism for the way the Superstars are being released from the company at regular intervals. Clearly, many might look at him as the villain. One Superstars recently went as far as claiming that he could well play the role of Darth Vader!
Sasha Banks is one of the most popular Superstars on the WWE roster today. In addition to being a professional wrestler, she also plays the role of Koska Reeves in the Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian. She recently appeared on Mark Andrews’ My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast, where she was asked about which WWE personalities could play a role in Star Wars.
“Darth Vader would have to be Vince McMahon. Who else? Princess Leah, me. Chewbacca… why am I like seeing a cute little Big E in my head? Yeah, he’s just so cute. Who else? R-Truth as Jar-Jar Binks,” mentioned Banks.
Vince McMahon has been regularly featuring on WWE TV
Vince McMahon has been regularly appearing on WWE television since the last couple of months. For the entire of 2021, McMahon had appeared only during a couple of times – at Wrestlemania 37 and at Smackdown – to welcome back the live audiences.
