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.
Didn't that guy remind you of Bischoff?
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
The views of the crowd are worth the watch and paused it a minute in so I can grab my popcorn.......
Btw, this chick and the one after her are hot as shit and could be inserted into 2019 looking just like they did then.....
This chick can stay in 1980
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
