A lot of people seem to think that Vince McMahon has lost his touch, that he doesn't have it anymore, or that he simply isn't motivated to put out a good product because of his TV contracts and the Saudi blood money. While those things might all be partially true, isn't it possible that this is simply a case of Vince falling out of love with his own product? And really, can you blame him?
Vince was never a "rasslin" guy, we all know this. But Vince did, once upon a time, genuinely love his vision of "sports entertainment." Hogan/Andre, Macho Man and Elizabeth, The Ultimate Warrior, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin raising hell, The Rock electrifying his millions (and millions) of fans, etc. Larger-than-life superheroes, good vs. evil, unforgettable characters and promos, true WrestleMania moments (not corporate branding bullshit).
Now put yourself in Vince McMahon's shoes: over the past 3 years, these are the so-called "superstars" that were supposed to carry the company into the future: Finn Balor, AKA the Lucky Charms mascot; Nakamura, a broken-down Japanese wrestler who doesn't speak English; Bayley, a woman who took her entire gimmick from a 1993 Lisa Frank notebook; AJ Styles, a 42-year old slack-jawed yokel who thinks the Earth is flat… I could go on and on. At a certain point, don't you think Vince is looking around this locker room of hopeless geeks and PS4 players and wondering "what the fuck happened to this place?!" Shit, if I'm him, and this is the best the wrestling business has to offer in 2019, I'm throwing my hands up and trying to start a football league too. At least then I might find athletes who look like grown men.
Not to mention the crowds. You'd have an easier time finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow (maybe Finn can help!) than finding genuine testosterone in a WWE audience today. The wrestling fanbase has become the Comic Con crowd. Excited kids and adrenaline-fueled men salivating to see a fight have been replaced by castrated Incels in 6XL Bayley t-shirts throwing beach balls around and chanting "You Deserve It" at their favorite spot monkeys, while Dave Meltzer is giving ****** to fucking Adam Cole vs. El Torito midget matches. What in the actual fuck?
I'm surprised Vince even bothers showing up to work anymore. Imagine if your business depended on somehow getting the average American TV viewer to give a shit about Seth Rollins? I'd just call it a day and sell the company to Disney.
A good effort, but you repeated the midget spot. For maximum troll effectiveness you need a different card to play for Balor. Might I suggest his Irish upbringing?
