Re: How did Vern Gagne blow the AWA

In fairness, Verne ran a very successful promotion for thirty plus years. He also had his roster drained by WWF's offers of better money and national exposure. Despite the perception that Gagne was 'old school' he was at the forefront of really promoting the wild characters and personalities of his talent as well as being responsible for the training of hundreds of successful wrestlers.

He simply wasn't able to adapt to the changes taking place during that era, but he was a larger success than he was a failure.

I love professional-wrestling.
