    Vince can't afford anymore deaths. As cold as it sounds, a company can't have a 5% death ratio year in and out and someone isn't gonna take up a crusade against them.

    I really don't want to sound like a Mushnick here but it is amazing that the case against the WWE continues to look this bad yet more and there hasn't been more outcry.


Blame the mainstream media. Their passionate dedication to ignoring professional wrestling (and ten thousand people attending any kind of event in your city is news, any way you slice it), opens wide the door to this kind of environment. If wrestling were considered a legitimate business, Vince McMahon would have been at least figuratively crucified a long time ago. The fact that Phil Mushnik and Bob Costas are the only ones who have the balls to even broach the subject of wrestling being, quite literally, murder on its stars, is astounding. If Oprah wouldn't mind getting her hands dirty, she could bust this thing wide open, and it'd be ten times more fascinating a show than one about some lardo who lost one hundred pounds and now has enough loose skin to make a couch, thank-you-very-much-but-I've-seen-it-all-before.

Look, let's put it this way. The Daily Show is on cable and has never beaten RAW in the ratings. It doesn't even crack the top fifteen cable shows of the week. So why is John Stewart a bigger celebrity than Batista or Kurt Angle? Coverage. The media will cover John Stewart. It will treat him like a star. It will ignore a wrestler, and wrestling at large against all logic.

Didn't Oprah once due a show regarding kids who hurt themselves mimicking professional wrestlers?
