Re: How did Vern Gagne blow the AWA

Verne was more about the "sport" of wrestling, even with the characters he had in the AWA over the years. Plus he never wanted to expand and go national like Vince because he was an Old School guy who didn't like to complete with anyone. Like the other promoters that Vince crushed, he was behind the times and didn't want to move forward. Apparently his son Greg tried to get him to go more down the WWF route but Verne refused.
