WWE is controlled by Vince McMahon. The Chairman’s decisions are famous at this point as he continues WWE’s booking to his own liking. He could use a bit more help staying in touch with society depending on who you ask.
During Can Chris Hero Save Wrestling?, a new show on AdFreeShows, Hero discussed Vince McMahon. He doesn’t know Mr. McMahon personally, but the people he has in his ear might not be giving him the best advice about how to keep his product current.
“I do not know Vince personally. I have met him a couple times but I’m speaking from my perception of what Vince is. I don’t have any inside knowledge.”
“I don’t think Vince cares to be in touch with today’s wrestling. I think he has his mindset on what type of product he wants to put out, and he’s doing his best to continually put that product out. When certain numbers aren’t met? He’s like ‘well we got to change something, what do we have to change?’”
“Vince has a couple of people that have his ear, and I’m sure he asks their opinion. It’s such a weird question, I can’t say that he’s ‘out of touch’ because he’s not trying to be ‘in touch.’ He doesn’t care what anybody else wants, he wants what he wants, and sometimes at the behest of his performers and his producers etc.”
“But it’s his, it’s his game, right? It’s his game, it’s his ball. You do it the way he wants you to do it, or you can find a job elsewhere.”
Vince McMahon doesn’t need to be “in touch” because he controls every aspect of his company’s programming. He is always instrumental in the company’s creative direction, even when he’s not there. That trend isn’t likely to stop any time soon.
