I don’t think there is a pure wrestling fan out there that doesn’t know how set in his ways Vince is and even top stars have had to pay the price for not going along with his plans. He’s
screwed Wendy Richter out of her title and famously screwed Bret Hart as well. One over pay and the other over the title. Given the current wrestling environment and with titles and pay not being the huge issues they once were, do you ever foresee Vince having
to resort to such tactics ever again?

Not unless they suddenly decide to put the World title on Mustafa Ali.  Pretty much everyone else wants to be there and is brainwashed into the “WWE is wrestling” mindset.
