Vince McMahon: The Bucket List

For those of you who've been waiting for a new edition of the Bucket List (I'm sure you all couldn't eat or sleep with anticipation), the wait is over.

In this issue, I have suggested four things that will complete the legacy of the most important, controversial and pioneering figure in the history of professional wrestling. I am talking, of course, about Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Or, if you'd prefer, "Vincent Kennedy McMahon, damn it!"

Without doubt, when the patriarch of the most famous family in the wrestling industry retires, his achievements will be extolled as quickly as his failures will be derided. He is one of the greatest minds in the history of wrestling, and has revolutionised the business on more than one occasion.

Whether that was for better or worse is for you to decide.

Truly, Vince McMahon will be remembered for contributing more to wrestling than anyone in history, with his innovative, audacious, ruthless and, frankly, surreal mind.

He created "Hulkamania." He won the Monday Night Wars, overseeing the most commercially lucrative period in wrestling history which became known as the Attitude Era.

He is arguably an on-screen personality who eclipses wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin and John Cena. They were the faces of the company, but he made them the faces of the company.

This will be something of a unique article, because this Bucket List applies more to real life issues than it does with the kayfabe gaps in the curriculum of wrestlers. While they may require one more World Championship or one defining win to cement their legacies, Vince McMahon has to make groundbreaking business decisions to affect his.

As a man who has been loved, hated and analysed beyond measure, he is certainly worthy of an article in this series. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Vince McMahon's Bucket List.

Before proceeding, credit needs to be given to Bleacher Report member Akash V, who was the inspiration behind this article. Akash, I hope you enjoy. That goes for everyone else reading, too.
