Even though WrestleMania ended a few days back, the aftermath is far from being over.
There has been a tremendous amount of ranting about WWE and WrestleMania in particular. We have seen articles ranging from “Has Vince McMahon Gone Senile?” to “Is John Cena Killing the Business?”
There has been massive uproar against WWE calling itself a sports entertainment company, instead of a wrestling company. A new reader of IWC might even think that this industry is nearing its demise.
Therefore, I have decided to take a look at several issues plaguing WWE. In addition to it, I will be analyzing Vince McMahon in what would be the most important part of this article. Following are the four focal points of this article.
- 1. Sports entertainment vs. Wrestling
- 2. WWE’s decay – a result of sociological changes
- 3. John Cena – a victim of circumstances?
- 4. Vince McMahon – An analysis of a greedy tycoon and a legitimate legend
I'm not an optimist who floats in clouds with fairies dancing around, neither am I a pessimist who would whine for no reason. I will therefore analyze all my points from a purely rational point of view.
Let us proceed.
