Re: Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE
Vince reminds me a lot of late-career Henry Ford. Ford was this titan of industry with a revolutionary product when he got his company going, but he refused to change afterward. He kept producing the Model T all the way into the late 1920's when GM and Chrysler were coming out with new designs and Ford sales were falling as a result. He fought with his son who wanted to start making new cars and resisted for years and years until he finally had no choice.
But there was still a lot of internal dissent and Ford hired this lunatic called Harry Bennett who whispered in his ear and had dreams of taking over the company. Labor relations grew a lot worse too because of Bennett's measures. His guys even killed some strikers and Ford just kept him around and around, despite a lot of higher ups in the company, including his son, wanting Bennett out.
His son died and his grandson was called back from active service in World War II to run the day to day, but things didn't really change until Bennett was fired and Henry Ford finally died. Firing Bennett was the first thing his grandson did.
Only then did the company begin moving on and started producing hits again. It was still a recognized brand with great sales of course, but only started making "magic" again, if you will, after Ford died.
Sounds very familiar, even down to Bennett. You know who he parallels.
