WHY VINCE IS RETURNING TO RAW, SCU, MID-SOUTH COLISEUM AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2018-12-15 10:00:00

I don’t get it.  Raw ratings have been down, so Vince McMahon’s big idea is to bring himself back?  That doesn’t scream young, hip company.

No, it doesn’t, but traditionally, Vince appearing does bring interest and that’s what they are looking for – to get people to care about what’s going on.  I don’t think he’ll be a regular character on the show as much as being the impetus to kick off a new direction.

SCU were in the farewell appearance speech for The Young Bucks.  Are they done as well?

It appears so.  Their contracts expect on 12/31.  After that, they are free agents.

What’s your wrestling Christmas gift this year?

I get that gift all year.  I get to write about pro wrestling for a living. 

I am watching old PPVs.  Why did Mr. Perfect replace The Ultimate Warrior at the 1992 Survivor Series?

Warrior was let go by WWF leading into the show.

I saw you report the Mid-South Coliseum was saved.  So when do we get wrestling in there again?

I don’t know that we do.  While the venue has been saved from being torn down, that doesn’t mean they are going to open it again as an entertainment venue.  There’s no clear-cut direction for the building yet.
