Vince McMahon has no plans to retire from running WWE

A lot of folks are waiting for Vince McMahon to hand over the reins of WWE to Triple H, Stephanie McMahon-Levesque or, well, anybody.

The Game told everyone back in September not to hold their breath, he doesn't think his father-in-law is ever retiring.

Based on the conversation Steve Austin had with Vince on WWE Network, it's easy to see why Trips has that opinion.  It doesn't sound like the Chairman has any plans to leave his seat at the head of the table:

I work as many hours now as I always have. I'm enjoying the business now more than I always had, and I've always enjoyed it. I'm healthy, knock on whatever. And I think I haven't lost a step. Physically I haven't, mentally I haven't.

What about people who say that he's out of touch, or doesn't have a good handle on today's pop culture landscape?

Some people think I'm out of touch but most people who say that are critics and things of that nature. And, again, I listen to the audience. It's important to give them what they want. Well, how do you know what they want? You've got to try any number of things. I think with NXT and some of the guys coming up from there, they're getting great reactions. It's going to take them a while and maybe somewhere down the line there will be another Stone Cold and if there is, we're good to go.

So there you have it.  Vince isn't going anywhere, and they're going to keep trying new things to create new stars.

Hopefully, none of those NXT kids try anything that pisses anybody off, though.
