I think you're right. (Sorry for the long reply, but it's distraction from the bone spurs in my neck giving me chronic headaches.) Vince's now outlived his father by seven years (pancreatic cancer), his grandfather Jess by four years (cerebral hemorrhage), and his older brother Rod died in January at 77. Vinnie K. turned 76 last month, making him the second oldest McMahon male in their recorded family tree, and he was a long time steroid user. While I'm sure his health is monitored closely, genetics are genetics. He can't afford to have WWE dependent on him at this stage of his life. (Former NWA competitor Jim Crockett, Jr. also died at 76 in March, the same age his predecessor, NWA cofounding father Sam Muchnick retired at in 1982.)Vince isn't booking anything. Lol This is hhh and steph
You never know I guess, but the chances of another gold medalist being at the level of Kurt Angle are pretty damn small.They are desperate, nobody cares about WWE anymore and AEW is growing exponentially, they gotta do something damn it so they are praying this guy will be the new Kurt Angle
Yeah I would be surprised if he's that.You never know I guess, but the chances of another gold medalist being at the level of Kurt Angle are pretty damn small.
I don't think he believed that Danielson would leave for AEW.Yeah I would be surprised if he's that.
WWE are in trouble right now though, to me they seem to only have one iron in the fire which is Rock vs Reigns at mania, which will be huge, but what's after that?
They stale AF and vince is so slow to react these days, it's shocking to me he let Danielson main event a wrestlemania when his contract was almost up, instead of just chucking AJ styles or someone on a longer contract in there, allowing AEW to literally sign a guy who main evented the last wrestlemania, shocking bit of business that.
What makes you sure that is what's happening?Never thought I would see Vince hand over the reigns totally to a suit and prep the WWE for sale to a corporate owner.
AEW is like a carny revival, but mark carnies, not the real ones who only cared about making a dime.
Particularly with Olympic wrestling still on life support. WWE desperately tried to lure Rulon Gardner into their business after Gardner shockingly won Greco-Roman gold at Sydney over the seemingly invincible Karelin. So even if there is another gold medalist at the level of Angle and Gardner, there's no guarantee they'll be interested in pro wrestling entertainment. Gable Steveson grew up a WWE fan, but others who won Olympic gold have been pro fans, yet didn't enter the business.You never know I guess, but the chances of another gold medalist being at the level of Kurt Angle are pretty damn small.
The vince thing?What makes you sure that is what's happening?
I dunno. He took NXT away from HHH and took control of it, and he entered (and won) a serious bidding war for an unproven prospect in Gable Stevenson.The vince thing?
Everything ive heard is vince is prepping to sale by extremely cutting cost and handing management to nick khan. Rushing guys up with little prep isnt really vinces style, especially doing so without a real strong gimmick behind them. You add that and the cuts and the pumping unproven and undevelooed it seems like vince has let go. Imho
That could be true, but then again if i remember correctly Cornette, Konnan and Pritchard said NXT at its best was never HHH, but was unofficially Dusty and Dutch Mantell. HHH was removed after they were pushed out because he simply wasn't able to produce on his own.I dunno. He took NXT away from HHH and took control of it, and he entered (and won) a serious bidding war for an unproven prospect in Gable Stevenson.
I think Vince has allowed all of the good voices he had around him to go away, and he's getting older and making bad decisions.
