Shane McMahon quits WWE ... for what?

OK, this is the biggest wrestling news of the year: Shane McMahon has announced his intention to resign from WWE.

My take on the whole thing is this: Shane sees no long-term future in WWE, personally or professionally or corporately, and is getting out while the getting is good and he's still young enough to go build his own legacy using his share of the family fortune.

Frankly, this is THE wrestling story of 2009, and will have long-term repercussions on the entire industry (or what's left of it in North America).

The rumor mill - or maybe, the wishful thinking mill, as Shane has said nothing publicly about this other than what's on the WWE site - has him going to UFC, where he'd do more or less the same job he did in WWE, which was global marketing.
