Oh, Vince McMahon. For everything that you have done to make this business great today, you have made it just as terrible at the same time.
McMahon brought us WrestleMania but also brought us the XFLl. He brought us The Attitude Era but also caused the Montreal Screwjob. McMahon has developed many great characters but has also destroyed so many more.
Vince has been a great and personable guy to some but has harassed others.
McMahon has run WWE with kid gloves in the last decade or so. McMahon is a politician in every sense of the word. When something controversial happens, he wants to backpedal from it, unless it is him doing it.
McMahon ran away from the Chris Benoit situation but avoided the talk of steroids and head trauma. McMahon used the Eddie Guerrero tragedy to push the Wellness Policy for positive press but picked and chose the offenders.
McMahon has now taken his great company and made it a PG machine for the kiddies, a far cry from what it ever was, even when superstars only performed leg drops and bodyslams.
This is all not including the fact that McMahon took the idea of regional wrestling organizations and pushed them all out of business for his own mega promotion. McMahon turned WWE into the Wal-Mart of wrestling companies.
I could go all day about Vince McMahon, but as much as there is stuff to talk about, his era of being a corrupt and controversial wrestling figure is quickly wrapping up.
