It's just so sad too because it would be simple to turn it all around. He has a total monopoly, TNA is not competition in any way, and all the talent available to him because of his pocketbook. I wonder if it is just an ego thing or "keeping it in the family" that he refuses to bring in the people that could turn it all around. Trip and STeph had their chance and screwed it up. Bring in the people that made the late 90's great, they are still around and would do it for the right paycheck and the right reasons. If the old man just humbled himself and said he needed help, a lot of people would help him - Vince is not hated as much as people think and frankly money talks. It could be so great because he could properly fund something like ECW to make it look better ie lighting, cameras, production etc. And the number one thing NOT to do is bring in that bufoonish fagget Russo. That moron could fuck up a cup of coffee.
Ibjust don't think Vince cares anymore. He won the monday night wars and out of sheer LUCK. If it wasn't for Bishoff ordering Tony Schivone to give away Raws results, no one would've changed the channel. WCW was defeated and since then there's been nothing but a slow down slide in his product and it only got worse once the old school guys started retiring and eddy and benoits situations/deaths haven't helped. In Vince's mind, he "won". Right now fans are being force fed garbage. Hense the rating boosts in Monday Night Football...basket ball and hockey.
