Longtime WWE play-by-play man Michael Cole recently joined the Pat McAfee Show to discuss WWE under new creative-head Triple H, and how it differs from the previous 25 years he had under now retired Chairman, Vince McMahon. Check out Cole’s full thoughts on the subject, including how Vince is a second dad to him, below.
Says Triple H in charge has provided a great change of scenery from Vince McMahon:
“Everything’s been great. It’s been a great change of scenery the past couple of months. Things are going wonderfully. Ratings have been good, stories have been great — it’s a different world.”
How Vince was like a second father to him, but that the new regime has been fun for him:
“Vince McMahon… I worked under Vince for 25 years, and I knew nothing else. He was a second dad in many ways. I grew up in the company. It was a shock when it [Vince’s resignation/retirement] first happened, and I think we’ve all settled in and realized, ‘Hey, the show must go on,’ is what Vince always said. The show’s going on, we’re doing well, and it’s been a lot of fun.”
