That's been my take. I think he just can't admit that his theory never came true (or maybe never was true to begin with). I sort of get how he is like a Pro Wrestling 101 for non-fans and perhaps he should stick to that (his Dead Wrestler bios for Deadspin were what brought him attention in the first place). Actually, Grantland as a whole does a lot better analyzing the past than looking towards the future.
“You know it used to be that a hug was a special thing between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince McMahon. But now you wanna go around hugging Kurt Angle? Because you're grooming him to be the next WWF Champion? Why? What's wrong with me?
