Re: Stephanie to blame?
People don't realize that it took 2 years for Team Steph to cut their domestic business in more than half from when she took charge over Kreski . The only thing that was propping up this company for the decade was Shane's department helping grow relationships with the outside world and saving this company with expansions in the global market that carried them through the 2000's. That more than any pushed star in the Cenas, Batista, Ortons of the world that kept the company's revenue above the red line. And even those markets are now eroding with only The Rock saving them the past 2 years in giving Mania a boost and preventing a net loss for the years.
I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?
Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
