    Why am I surprised that good-ole Vince doesn't have what you'd call a point of view in line with the rest of reality.

      R-Truth should be on this list. If you're putting Ziggler and Ryder on here, Truth guess on as well.
      Shit gimmicks and 1 rushed push that was handled lazily.
      And STILL, everything he does is gold. Look at THE 24/7 TITLE....Truth made a joke title into the the most interesting thing on RAW

            It wans't just Puder embarrassing angle that got him heat, that was only part of it. It was the attitude he carried around which rubbed others the wrong way. He was arrogant just because he was a legit MMA fighter which pissed a lot of guys off..mainly Hardcore Holly. Not excusing what happened to him at the Rumble, but the way he acted did NOT help matters.

                  Vince grew up in the business and pretty much created it as it is today, so its mind-blowing that vince has either forgotten or is ignoring a golden rule of
                  pro wrestling: The promoter/office/etc. does not choose who gets over and becomes popular,
                  THE FANS DO!!!
                  Everytime the company decides a "chosen one" it fails every time, almost without fail!

                    It's a shame how many careers were destroyed because their popularity was not part of the plan. Some like Bryan survived WWEs punishments, but most fell into obscurity. I figured a smart company would capitalize on a wrestler getting over instead of sticking to their horrible scripts and canning momentum of their future stars.

                        I think they are threatened by wrestlers getting over on their own merit. They want to brainwash the talent into believing they are completely reliant on the company.

                                      I remember when the McMahons did a promo saying that we were going to be in charge who was going to be push. I'm still waiting for them to listen.

                                        I always thought they should have done more with Ryback. They were building him up quite well but then he was demolished by the shield and turned heel. My theory is they signed Lesnar while they were building him and didn’t want two unstoppable monsters so he was dropped.

Like you can complain about lots of things with WWE but I dont understand WHY they give their tag belts blue and red belts and PURPLE for the cruiserweight title?? It diminishes the prestige of these titles.

If Vince didn't have a hand in someone getting over, he has to sabotage it. And he has to sabotage it because, in his mind, if you can get over on your own, that means you don't need him. And once the wrestlers start seeing that you don't actually need Vince to get over, the con is over. So, in short, Vince McMahon has to bury you to justify his own existence.
