Vince McMahon is, on his day, a fantastic wrestling promotor. He is head of a company with a decades' long track record of creating stars, some of whom have gone on to become household names.
It hasn’t always been easy. WWE hasn’t always had the depth of talent currently stacked in the Performance Center, but time and time again they have made chicken salad from the proverbial chicken s**t.
They haven’t always taken the obvious route either. How many people, shown six foot ten Mark Calaway, would say, “great, make him an undead mortician. The gimmick will run for decades and he’ll be one of the industries most beloved figures!”? Almost none, you'd wager. But that’s what Vince McMahon did.
Easy to assume then, that he must be some form of visionary. Then again, for a visionary he sure seems to miss a lot of great things that are right in front of him.
Any promoter in the world would be delighted to have talents like the ones on this list fall in their lap. WWE just didn’t see it...
