Hello, everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.
There is one thing I see plenty of here on B/R, and that is plenty of WWE bashing.
While a good amount of the complaints are justified, I can’t help but feel that people are being a bit harsh on Vince.
Yes, he is a ruthless, bloodthirsty businessman who has no compassion for anyone. He has folded more companies than I care to remember. How does that make him any different from any other business owner though?
I also get why people complain about the writing and lame acting. I agree 100 percent with all of you on that point. I would much rather see six or seven great matches, instead of watching a long, drawn-out birthday ceremony.
You can say a lot of things about the old lug. Yes, he is a little crazy, he also has an uncanny knack for pissing the fans off with some of his decisions. There is one area though where you have to give the devil his due: The man knows how to produce good wrestlers.
You can fill a 10-page resume with the stars that Vince has made. In the '80s, he turned many mid-card wrestlers into legends. If it wasn’t for Vince, guys like Hart, HBK, Perfect, and Ted DiBiase would be unheard of.
In the '90s he managed to build up a plethora of wrestling talent. He took a mid carder named Steve Austin and tuned him into a god. You can also add the Rock, Hardys, and Edge and Christian on to that list.
I hear people say often that Vince is starting to lose a step or two. I also see the articles where people wonder if Vince can still run the ship. It’s hard for me to take any of these opinions seriously.
He is still pumping out the goods, and as long as he does that he and the WWE will be fine. We have seen Vince turn guys like Cena, Batista and Orton into household names. If not for Vince, we would have never even know who Brock Lesnar was.
To be a great promoter, you need to know how to turn a talented wrestler into a star. I don’t see where he is failing at this. As we speak now, JOMO, Swagger, and the Hart Dynasty are the verge of superstardom.
The future looks very good for the WWE as far as I’m concerned. There is no shortage of talent anywhere for Vince. Just look at the current FCW roster if you doubt me—It is loaded with superstars just waiting to be molded into art.
I know Vince has his flaws as far as the way he runs the WWE. It annoys me just as much as anyone else. You have to admit, though, he is very good at probably the most important aspect of wrestling.
Instead of constantly bashing the guy, I think it’s about time we sat down and started appreciating him more. He has made the wrestling business bigger than it’s ever been in the past.
While wrestling has been a roller coaster as of late, he still has the ability to give the world a great wrestling product. You have to respect the guy for his love, respect, and care of pro wrestling.
I can honestly say that if I had one guy to start my wrestling company, it would probably be none other than Vince McMahon.
I would like to thank all of you for spending a few minutes with me today.
As always have a great day and God bless.
