Vince McMahon’s Advantage
If you hate Vince McMahon, then maybe you’ll buy a tee-shirt for his rival. And that’s a great outcome for the WWE.
Abraham Josephine Riesman is the author of “Ringmaster: Vince McMahon and the Unmaking of America.” Ricky Mulvey caught up with Riesman to discuss:
- Vince McMahon’s early life as a “pretty nice kid”, and the parts of his story he doesn’t want wrestling fans to know.
- WWE’s potential deal with the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund.
- The Montreal Screwjob, and the groundwork for the modern WWE.
- A story about Saddam Hussein’s side job as a wrestling promoter, Andre the Giant, and a golden gun.
