Has anyone in the front office of the WWF/E ever considered asking Vince not to speak anyplace where the members of the press are not his shills? One tough question about the steroid/drug problem, and Vince has the 'I'm taking my ball and going home' philosophy invoked, ending the Wrestlemania press conference. If Vince doesn't want to answer these questions, fine, but don't put yourself or the company in the position where you appear to be ducking the question, thus causing further poor P.R. As always with Vince and the WWF/E, when the company is going good, his act has the view of novelty, when things are going bad, he looks like a boar. Sadly for the WWF/E, its the going bad cycle, thus Vince does his weekly boarish behavior act.

Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.

There's two kinds of steroids, legal ones, and the good ones you can only get from Canada. There's no reason to not talk about the legal ones, vince..

He should have made a crack like, "There are no baseball players here today."

Maybe this should be in "Site Bashing," but I'm thinking the E should only invite members of the illustrious Internet wrestling media to its press conferences. I was checking out some recaps and they were pissing me the hell off, to be quite honest. "An extremely ignorant reporter asked Vince if today's bigger champions were on steroids"? Fuck you! That's a completely legitimate and important question, and if you, Mr. Uppity Wrestling Writer, want to get all defensive about a business you're not even involved in and pretend that it's not one of the dirtiest industries short of waste management, maybe you should just start a petition to mail to the Society of Professional Journalists and recuse yourself from providing yours truly reports of these events.

When one considers the state of corporate ethics today, how is Vince any worse than say, a Jack Welch? So Vince doesn't answer questions about steroids. Is that really worse than selling defective nuclear reactor designs to India? So Vince fired B.B. How does that rank with firing tens of thousands in the name of more stock options? I don't mean to defend Vince, or cut a promo on capialism. I just don't see why we should be suprised by his usual behavior. As for extremely ignorant reporters...3 words-internet wrestling media.

Don't use the word "reporter" in the same sentence with internet wrestling media ever again please. It gives us reporters a bad name.

And they always complain that wrestling doesn't get a fair shake by the mainstream media. But with stunts like this, can you really blame reporters?

They probably should let Linda McMahon handle actual press conferences with real media, especially since they are an actual corporation now. I think she tends to be more diplomatic about these matters.

From the other point of view.
You are there to announce your big event, you are there to announce that you are bringing one of the biggest spectacles in the world of sport and entertainment to a city.
Is that the time to ask 'do you know its fake?' or 'do they use drugs?' ???
Sure it makes the reporter look all smart and controversial but keep those questions to a sit down interview with Vince.

I know, right? I'm a little staggered that they actually followed through on the whole thing accurately. Ah, yes -- I forgot that part. --K
