    Default Just something I noticed....

    What happened to Trips being the COO? Vince has been on Raw alot lately as the Chairman, interacting with Vickie, Paul, and Punk. They haven't even mentioned Trips as COO. Have they just abandoned it?

    I guess his...arm is broken? So that stops him from pushing pencils and signing papers? Or, Vince took it away because Triple H doesn't have the business sense to run a lemonade stand.

    Oh, right. Then...I still go with the "Vince took it away" one.

    Not only that, but didn't the board vote him out? Now, he just magically shows up and makes matches?

    Maybe Vickie forgot that Vince is no longer the Chairman?

    Yeah because there's continuity in wrestling.

    Something like "Who owns the company" might be a little tiny detail they want to be consistent. Maybe next week, Ronald McDonald will show up and act as the Chairman.

    1. That would be awesome.

    2. I don't really think the guy who has run the company for 25 years continuing to run it is comparable to a fast food mascot doing so.

    They probably should have made it clear somewhere along the line that the Board returned him the power to make day-to-day decisions, but I don't see it as anything to be bothered by.

    He's probably ashamed he tapped out to Lesnar. Doesn't want to show his face on WWE programming.

    I'd say that Trip's "pull" with Vince has moved to the boardroom and escalated to oral.

    He's still COO.

    WWE.com did an article recently explaining WWE's kayfabe power structure. Wish I could find it but WWE.com's search engine sucks.

    Triple H had enough sense to handpick Randy Orton for Evolution. How did that turn out?

    Business sense. BUSINESS. As in how to run a business. Which Triple H showed in his brief time as COO he has none.

    Are you talking about the character Triple H as COO or are you questioning the real life person and his ability to run a business?

    I'm speaking in kayfabe, though I genuinely doubt there's too much of a difference.

    We will have to wait and see. I personally think Triple H has a better mind for the business at the current state of wrestling than Vince McMahon and even someone like Paul Heyman (Yes I just said that).

    The real HHH just brought in El Generico.

    The Kayfabe HHH thinks the best way to sort out a legal dispute is to punch the guys lawyer in the face.

    Come on Crippler, I know you hate HHH, but there's a big difference here.

    Exactly.

    HHH's business sense is all around awesome, at least in theory.

    All we need is for him to finally get more pull than Kevin 'Let's bury Sheamus because he's ginger' Dunn.

    Dunn didn't like the way Sheamus looked, so he had Sheamus win King of the Ring and wear that dumb outfit and then start losing.

    Dunn was behind Sheamus' big depush in 2010/11, having him become King Sheamus and dress ridiculous, constantly lose to Santino and Morrison, and get shitkilled by HHH, as well as being left off of Wrestlemania, because he didn't like his look.

    Dunn is also apparently responsible behind the big burial of Zack Ryder, one of 2011's biggest Merchandise movers.

    In short... Kevin Dunn is a fucking moron, whose business sense relies more on personal preference than actual moneymaking.

    Hell, Vince fucking HATED Shawn in the 90's, yet knew he was good for business, and kept him around.
