The problem with Vince Burying Fan driven wrestlers.

Forever now it feels Vince has an agenda towards doing whatever it takes to prevent or cool off performers the fans love and truly want to see thrive in his company as if he hates the people who keep his product alive outside of the Saudi deal.

Refusal to change for the better(And Money) and just shoehorning his own personal favorites against the fans wishes remains unchanged to this day whether it effects ratings or not, A younger McMahon was no different but he was willing to try a little harder especially with the threat of WCW that gave us the Attitude Era now he's considered out of touch with his own product.

Out of touch would mean he isn't aware of the need for change but I'm not sure he's that blind one bit, People think HHH is best to take the helm and improve the product as a whole but that's pure speculation at this point.

I get it he hates the opinions of fans giving him an idea he didn't originally think of himself but you'd think he'd listen if it meant more money, Something that drives him to do business at all costs let alone the passion.

There isn't much to be said that CM Punk didn't already say back in the day in the pipebomb promo. It still rings true till this day. Vince McMahon is a guy that is comfortable being a millionaire when he could be a billionaire.

I believe it's the self-fulfilling prophecy that only SummerSlam, the Rumble and Wrestlemania draw.

Why put any effort into the rest of the year, when its only wrestling marks watching and they'll watch anything simply because it has WWE in the title.

Fair point but he could have favored those popular with the audience since that's how a draw is created in the first place, He would still benefit from this logic.

Vince likes doing things his way. He's been doing things his way, for a long time, and he's been very successful at it. He's not going to change just because the fans or anyone else want him to.

Re: The problem with Vince Burying Fan driven wrestlers.

Before AEW became a thing there were rumors of Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks signing with WWE and all I could think of was if they signed how long would it take before they felt like just another name on the roster? The unfortunate thing is it's Vince's company and he will do with it whatever he wants, but he has essentially blown making stars numerous times for what seems like no real reason.

I've been saying this for a while now. Wrestlemania is the worst thing in WWE, the show shouldn't be zero effort for 9 months of the year because "it's not wrestlemania season, why bother?" It just makes the show feel more stale and predictable than normal.

I have similar problems with the money in the bank briefcase.

By pleasing the “fans” you mean pleasing the hardcore wrestling nerds.

Vince McMahon traditionally caters to the mass market.

That’s why.
