    Thanks for posting. Had no idea that stuff happened back in the day. Vince claiming be didn’t know? C’mon. He’s known to be a micro manager with his finger on the pulse of every little detail within his company. What ever came of these sexual harassment claims? And were Meltzer and the other media guys on stage there blackballed for going on the show or writing about this?

    Vince telling the guy he fired him because he sucked at broadcasting. And the guy saying well, maybe you fired me because you can't pick good talent? Haha what an idiot .

    Meltzer said Vince called him 3 days later & they talked for 3 hours.
    They talked regularly until the zeros I believe (maybe when they went public)
    Now its every few years

    Meltzer was fair in his coverage it seems
    He backed up that Pat Patterson being openly gay was used by some wrestlers to try & get money.
    He said he never believed Pat harassed anybody, but Pat was known to kid about things
    Pat's bf worked for WWF as well

    I can see Vince not knowing the other guy (Phillips) was harassing, but he certainly knew about the steroids.

    A few things ...

    Miss Elizabeth was in audience but they never went to her
    The younger kid at the end was a WWF plant. Meltzer said Vince asked for 7 tickets. 2 for Linda & Liz & 5 for others that were seated away from Linda
    This part was funny -

    IMO Superstar was out of line. He started the steroid craze and like others said, if he knew children were molested he is guilty for not saying anything

    Bruno's view of WWF was something nobody thought would ever change
    HHH re-built that bridge
    WWE is in good hands. VKM should step down

    Vince handled himself like a boss

    Superstar was a douche.

    Rumors have always swirled that Bruno was ok with everything until his son couldn't make it. Then he blamed Vince and things went super sour.

    All in my opinion

    I thought Vince came across like a nervous wreck
    not a slam on him, he had every reason to
    But one of the reasons I love the episode is seeing VKM not in control

    I seen/heard a lot of interviews with Bruno
    He legit hated what WWF turned into
