Boy oh boy does Vince really bring out the hypocrites in the IWC. It's funny how everyone wants to get on their high horse about how Vince is this terrible man, and how dare he be allowed back into his company. But when was Vince not a terrible person? It seems like everyone turned a blind eye to it during the Attitude era cause they loved the product. But now that less hardcores enjoy it Vince's issues are a bigger deal.
Realistically Vince was prob worse back then because there was no such thing as cancel culture or woke mobs holding people accountable. But you never see anyone make a huge deal about Vince always being a horrible guy when waxing poetically about how amazing the Attitude era was. Except for Bix, but he is the freaking worse. You can make the excuse it was a different time, but that is all it is, excuses. Plenty of people were fine with unprotected chair shots, bra and panties matches, men on women violence, Vince making women pose for playboy or get surgical enhancements, and having employees kiss his bare ass on TV. But now all the sudden alot of those same people who ate that stuff up want to clutch their pearls at Vince being who we knew he was the whole time, an absolute scumbag.
And funny enough the first thing that made alot of these Attitude fans turn on WWE was making it family friendly. You don't get more hypocritical than that. Vince cleaned the product up and made it safer to bring your family to an event. But you constantly hear that's what the downfall of WWE was. Now Vince didn't do it cause he was a good guy, it was the money. But he still did it. But cue AEW to reuse some of the worst parts of the Attitude Era and the IWC eats it up. Excessive blood and violence, shoddy medical practices, unprotected chair shots and other dangerous stunts, and what seems to be a messy backstage environment. But it's Tony Khan and he was a tape trader so he can't be a bad dude. Not like his family got their money using many of the same tactics Vince did back then, or now even. I am sure Shad or Tony could never be considered a terrible person right?
Oh my god did you actually use “woke mobs” to make your point? I’m gonna wave this one off right now. TKO loss.
