The entertainment world might not want to acknowledge it, but Vince McMahon has been a powerhouse in the media since before the inaugural WrestleMania. The man has done what so many other might business owners have done before and since–buy up bulks of your competition, assimilate the good ideas, disregard the bad ones and expand your business tenfold. His first steps were small but helped teach Vince a lot about arena shows. He and Linda would buy the Cape Cod Coliseum and the Cape Cod Buccaneers hockey team. The couple would promote rock shows as Vince would learn the ins and outs of the wrestling business from his father, who he would help increase the then–WWWF’ syndication and was the driving force behind infamous Mohammed Ali / Antonio Inoki showdown.
Vince would do the unthinkable when he went national in the eighties and took the wrestling industry to unfathomable heights that still are rising to this day, WrestleMania gets bigger and bigger every year and now SummerSlam has become the ‘Mania of the summer. But Vince is a far cry from King Midas and has made almost as many missteps over the years as he has had successes. More so than not lately, an aging McMahon has made several mistakes that could have cost the Boss a whole lot of green and robbed the fans of a lot of marquee moments. The WWE is far from any danger of going under, but plenty of fans and insiders alike do get the feeling that Vince is losing touch with the fan base and simply is doing what he wants to do with his company.
It has been said several dozen times over the past few years, but seldom have the reasons Vincent Kennedy McMahon needs to go have been quantified in a list. So here goes nothing.

For over two years’ time, Triple H has taken WWE developmental and has turned it into a powerhouse revolution. Besides the greatness of NXT, the Performance Center in Florida puts plenty of gyms and sports training facilities to shame. The Game has forever changed how the future will train and get ready for the big time. NXT sells out wherever they go and there are currently over 20 NXT superstars on the main roster and 4 out of their 5 major championships are held by former alum, including the world title. Clearly the revolution has begun, it's only a question as to how long will it take for the Boss to realize the Game does it better than he ever could.
