Vince McMahon soon developed the "Rock & Wrestling Connection", a concept that brought pop stars into the storylines and gave professional wrestling a national and much broader, audience.

Vince and his family live in Greenwich, Connecticut which is a roughly 30 minute drive from WWE's corporate headquarters in Stamford, CT. His Greenwich mansion is reportedly worth $40 million. McMahon has occasionally competed in the ring and has held the WWF Championship and ECW World Championship. He was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
