It's already been confirmed that Stephanie McMahon Levesque and Paul Levesque will take over when Vince steps down. This was decided when Shane McMahon currently the Chairman and CEO of YOU on Demand Holdings, Inc. (Formerly China Broadband Inc.), (The company is based in Boulder County, Colorado.), resigned October 16, 2009 that took effect as of January 1, 2010. Paul "Triple H" Levesque is the current COO, he was put in this spot to prepair him for the eventual CEO position of the WWE. Although Stephanie is Vince's daughter, Vince is still "old fashioned", and thinks a male authority figure is needed. And since Shane turned down the spot, Vince decided to go with this course of action - Board Approved. Unless Shane and Vince come to an agreement - (They are still upset with each other - Vince more than Shane) - And Shane returns to "run" against Stephanie and Paul in a closed Board vote, it will remain Stephanie's and Paul's company when Vince "Officially" retires or passes away.
