"It's a changing of the guard," said Jericho. "We're in a transitional period right now between bosses. Vince is handing the reigns over to Triple H and Triple H has a lot of responsibilities and a lot of power now and it's going to keep increasing because eventually Vince is going to give it up and stop. I don't know if he'll do it until he dies. I think over the next two or three years Triple H will be making most of the big decisions and Vince will be brought on as a consultant.
"I know for this deal that I made to come back this time, I talked completely with Triple H. I didn't talk with Vince at all and I'd always talked to Vince about any deal I ever had. Triple H is pretty much the boss, although Vince is always going to be the boss. But Triple H is in charge of more and more and more and developmental is a big part of that.
"To be honest with you, he's doing a great job. In the early 90s it's no secret there was no love lost between he and I. We didn't like each other, we didn't get along. We had great matches, but there was always a personality issue. That stopped years and years ago and now I consider Triple H a pretty good friend. I'll be completely flatly honest, I think he's the right guy to take over the company. I think he's prepared for it. He's learning a lot about how to be the corporate guy. There's so much more than just calling finishes and signing guys. He's got to run the
whole corporate side of it. Go to all the meetings, do all that stuff. I think it's in very good hands if Vince ever retires or passes away."
Part 2 of this 3 hour conversation drops this Sunday. MLW Radio is available for free at MLW.com and on iTunes (search: MLW Radio), along with episodes featuring MVP, The Ultimate Warrior, Teddy Hart, Billy Corgan and many others.
