Okay, so it seems obviously to even the blindest smark that Vince is repeating the same mistakes that killed WCW. So obvious is this that one must wonder how Vince cannot see this himself. But something has occurred to me that, while completely insane, would actually make perfect sense considering Vince's ego.
I think Vince is trying to prove his superiority by doing what WCW did, using the same stars, placing the focus on the same ideas in order to show that he can make it work. It's not just enough that he was there to bury WCW, but it seems that he needs to prove that he could withstand the same illness that killed it. I know it sounds really strange but if his ego is as out of control as I have reason to believe, it really makes sense. Not business sense, but I really wonder if it's even about that for him at this point.
It's just one last chance for him to show everyone how much better he is than Bischoff or anyone else in WCW was.
I have to disagree with this. Intentionally running your company's only proven asset into the ground in order to miraculously save it as it approaches the brink to prove your genius is not the type of move a company whose shares are traded on the NYSE Exchange generally makes. If Vince could do that, the nation would be abuzz with XFL Playoff talk right now.
There is only one man left to save Vince McMahon and the WWF/E. One man who will provide weekly Hogan/Andre Main Event ratings for RAW. Baghdad Bob is your salvation Vince. www.welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com
I think Vince already did the whole "Run your company into the ground only to save it" bit backin the Mid 90's.

Totally agree with you on the Angle promo. Best of 2003, so far. ;-) Seriously, this coming from the WWE Champion is something. Methinks Kurt's got the ball all the way until at *least* WM and (if he doesn't go to the Olympics)long after.
