Vince hates wrestling and wrestlers and wrestling fans because of his own insecurities caused by being abandoned by his father and later being looked down on by the NYC /Connecticut business and social elite when he reunited with his father and went into his father's business

Vince wants people to look at him like he is the incarnation of the Hunter Hearst Helmsley character but a babyface instead of a heel. He has this idea in his head of an old money Connecticut paterfamilias whose family came to America on the Mayflower and is looked at as an irreproachable pillar of the community 'man of respect.' That's who Vince wants to be. Not the scrawny kid abandoned by his father who grew up in a North Carolina trailer park and is a purveyor of carny trash

His entire adult life has been him going ' I am good in fact I'm better than you' to everyone because he thinks they all look down on him

Because he has no idea how to develop talent. He’s made billions by either stealing talent or having it drop into his lap. But that hasn’t happened in 20 years so he’s left with having to hold his nose and push guys like Seth, AJ, and a women’s division none of which has any appeal beyond hardcore wrestling fans.

This isn't the "workrate" era. This era is how many super kicks and back flips can I do in one match. Workrate has nothing to do with speed an agility.

How many more reasons do they need before they put this guy in a home? Keep it up Vince, I'll be over here enjoying AEW instead.

I think there's four issues in the Hell in a Cell match:
The red tent. It didn't work.
How the Fiend wrestles. It didn't work either.
Seth as a cold babyface. Fans were begging to turn the page.
And then the finish, which undercuts hell in a cell as a gimmick.

Bray Wyatt too "pro-wrestling"?

Re: Vince McMahon Reportedly Thinks Some WWE Stars Are ‘Too Pro Wrestling’

I've always liked having a mix.

You can have over the top characters, great athletes, or a mix of both. Wrestling works best when it covers as many bases as possible and provides variety.

I want to watch a show where I can get the Road Warriors, Goldberg, and Jake Roberts but also have Bret Hart, Dean Malenko, and The Four Hosemen, but then also have guys like The Rock, Randy Savage, and Shawn Michaels.

And through it all, it has to have good booking and stories to make whatever matches they do matter.

If its all over the top characters with little in ring focus, your show just becomes a three ring circus where the matches don't matter.

If its all straight up wrestling, then you just get pointless mat wrestling that means nothing and everybody looks the same.

Variety is the spice of life. That's my take anyway.
