Default Re: When Attitude started to rub the mainstream the wrong way

WWF were getting plenty of complaints around that time because of the huge numbers they were doing on TV in the teens demo. Teachers complaining that kids are saying wrestlers' catchphrases, doing their provocative taunts etc. The old, real, passionate Vince had the "don't like it, don't watch it" mentality and always said that it's the parents' responsibility on what they let their kids watch in 9pm-11pm. That was an awesome article, not for the case of the complainers, but for the people in it(Savage/Nash/Bret/Hogan/Bischoff/Vince/Jericho/Foley/RVD etc). Awesome times. The footage of Vince watching the Henry(Great comedy performance)skit with the interviewer expecting Vince to give him some PC BS excuse and he just laughs in his face, saying how hilarious it is, money every time. Sometimes you wonder what happened to this guy and if he's still there somewhere. You will never see a period close to the talent rosters, the success, creativity and greatness of the MNW. This vid is from around February 1999 BTW.
