"I don't like to sleep," McMahon says. "I'm missing something when I'm sleeping."
He still has the final word on every single Monday Night Raw creative decision.
At age 69, McMahon is still intensely involved with crafting the storylines that play out on Monday Night Raw, the WWE's weekly flagship television show.
He's famous for rewriting entire episodes if there's something in the script he doesn't like, even up to the moment the show goes live.
Grantland's David Shoemaker writes, "Vince has been known to micromanage everything from his performers' clothing to the most precise turn of phrase that the announcers say; he's been rumored to relay instructions down in real time into their headsets from his seat in the back."
"He just doesn't have interest in nothing but wrestling," Henry says. "And when you're a billionaire and your sole interest is trying to become a multi-billionaire, then you don't have time to just sit around and watch college football."
He's in incredible shape for someone his age.
McMahon has always taken his physique seriously, and in 2006, at the age of 60, he was featured on the cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine.
In the cover story, it was revealed that McMahon works out four days a week and that, at the time, he was capable of leg-pressing 1,200 pounds.
"Everything’s better when you’re in shape," McMahon is quoted as saying. "Food tastes better. Sex is better. Even breathing is easier."
He's even gotten into the ring.
Vince McMahon's dedication to his company is so great that he has at times put his body at risk inside the ring.
"At 67 years of age, there may be a few people wondering why Vince keeps putting himself out there in harm's way, like when he brawled with CM Punk recently on Raw," Stone Cold Steve Austin tells Fighting Spirit Magazine in a 2012 story. "Personally, I don't think he relies on himself too much — that's just the kind of person he is. I've heard people say that guys of a certain age need to get out of the ring, get off the football field, or whatever, but I would never place any limitations on Vince."
He started from the bottom, and he doesn't believe in excuses.
After (just barely) graduating from East Carolina University in 1968, McMahon worked selling paper cups and crushing rocks at a quarry, a job he says he spent 90 hours a week at.
Finally, at age 27, he convinced his father, owner of what was then known as the World Wide Wrestling Federation, to let him promote matches in the far-flung Bangor, Maine region. The younger McMahon succeeded, climbed the company ladder, and ultimately took over for his father in the early 1980s.
Soon after, McMahon began growing the company from a regional entity to a national one, and in 1984, he signed megastar Hulk Hogan.
As a result of his rapid ascent from rags to riches, McMahon is quick to dismiss anyone who says their upbringing has prevented them from becoming successful.
"When I hear people from the projects, or anywhere else, blame their actions on the way they grew up, I think it's a crock of ****," McMahon tells Playboy in a 2001 interview. "You can rise above it. This country gives you opportunity if you want to take it, so don't blame your environment. I look down on people who use their environment as a crutch."
