There are lots of things on the program that are basically Vinny Mac. Lets face it, there was a time when this guy had his finger on the pulse of global pop culture 4, 5 years ahead of time. It might not have been his way initially but he embraced it and ANGRY VINCE is one of the greatest heels in one of the greatest eras in pro wrestling.
The old gray mare just ain't what she used to be, right? He actively hurts the company.
After Benoit, this company did a stylistic and intellectual and cultural retreat. It doesn't help matters that Vince is pushing 70. There are Vince Decisions and Vince Moments and they've really hurt the company lately.
John Cena stagnating as a character.
The total failure to elevate a heel or face to top tier status not named Cena.
Burying people with B list PPVs with shoddy, rushed builds and faulty reason to exist.
Over-reliance on prior era and part time talent.
WWE Network disaster
Tout is horrible. Vinny Mac got swindled on this one.
All of the insufferable, money-bleeding, program-harming movie/show biz shit
Guest Host RAW, which everybody hated
Divas, cruiserweights and tag teams "don't draw" so they're as bad as they've ever been.
The horrible "comedy" segments
Full show scraps and rewrites night of.
Going along with his wife's 8 figure Senate "campaigns"
Three Hour RAW, total disaster. Its way too long and the first hour is almost invariably trash
The commentary situation with Cole/Lawler. Dreadful.
When I look at this I see two things. One, is ego tripping. Just unwarranted arrogance in things they have no business being in. Tout, WWE Network, movies. Just like the bodybuilding, XFL, etc
The second is total risk aversion. This company wasn't afraid to take a risk and it brought it to one of its highest heights. Take the undercard. Things "don't draw" so he never takes a chance on 'em. Cena stagnating as a character is nothing but risk aversion. The decision to keep Lawler around is timidity, cowardice and fondness for sameness and continuity because what if people don't like it? Change is scary!
Okay, you know how every year creative gets a major firing or hiring? They don't create shit except ideas and Vince has the final say over everything. You could hire reanimated Shakespeare and it wouldn't matter if the writing was genius or trash because it all goes through Vince. Fish rot from the head.
WWE would be better off without him. Bring on Trips.
Its time to fuckin'
