Re: What will it take for Vince to realize that they are not as good as they used to
We'll never witness a mea culpa of any kind from WWE. When their backs are put to the wall they simply blame the wrestlers and insist it's "time for someone to step up." This despite the fact that the talent is handcuffed right out of the gate, having everything they say and do scrutinized and watered down. Vince and Creative will never confess to their shortcomings; they'll just insist that pro wrestling has lost its luster and needs to be redefined.
Note: that notion is crap, by the way. There will always be a part of me that loves what's at the core of pro wrestling, but the version of it that exists in my head (darkened crowds in the arena, with the spotlight shining on the actual wrestling part) may indeed be a thing of the past.
