What If Eric and Albin Switched Places?

"I know that open has been your sidekick for years, but you guys were if you guys were to switch. What do you think that Alvin would do well as a host and what would you do well as the sidekick? You know, there are certain things certain questions you have absolutely no answer. I have no clue. I mean, it is so. The whole thing of doing a show like that. There's something about it. I can't even imagine, you know, first of all, when people say sidekick, what is this side? You do what you do. And they say your sidekick, but I mean, when you think of Ed McMahon and Ed McMahon actually didn't do anything. People say, you're the Ed McMahon, but Ed McMahon actually did very, very little. You do more because there's comic bits that Ed might not that we are going to be involved in that Ed would not would do and stuff like that. So I honestly, I have no answer. There's a moment with George Hamilton where he said he wanted to be your sidekick and he and I got into a little tattoo. Oh, yeah, he threatened your whole life. George Hamilton, can you imagine this guy at AJ saying he was a Hollywood icon, and he felt the need. To say, you better watch it Albin, because I'm going to have your job. I'm going to give you a job. But if something ever happens to you, it's kind of like, it's like the first runner up if miss America stumbles and loses her crown, runner up comes right in there. That's right. So if anything happens to you, George Hamilton will just he'll just sweep in as the first runner up. He'll be able to be the psycho. It's good to have that insurance.

"And you know how much money there is when it comes to that type of, you know, the number one position on cable television. And I just thought there's got to be so much money to back this guy and he was gone and he's never come back and he was, you know, so that's when it really hit me that like if this stuff comes out, you know, no matter how big you are, RV Weinstein or whoever, you know, it's like, you know, if it's public, you know, no matter what your power is, your vulnerable to it, as you should be. I mean, if you, if you use your power on women, in this day and age, I mean, you know, it happened in the past and all that, but that's so many horrible things that happen in this world in the past. And it's a good thing that those things are no longer acceptable. I mean, it's a sign of progress. And you're mentioning now because sometimes that was very interesting that you pointed out when Vince finally sent out this random tweet that at 77 it's time for me to retire. It was after 5 o'clock on a Friday, which means that the stock market closed 4 o'clock. 5 minutes earlier. 5 minutes early. Right, it just closed. And so the timing of that was perfect. You know, they wanted it on a Friday so that the market wouldn't they thought it would, you know, events was gone that maybe it would crash because when George barrios and Michelle Wilson both got fired by Vince, the stock went way, way down and Vince is obviously far more powerful and far more influential. But the funny part is the opposite happened because all of a sudden everybody was going like, with Vince gone, they can sell this company now. Vince might have held up a sale. And so the stocks are going to be working more because now people who know that they can buy the company. So it hasn't hurt the stock. I mean, that was the first thing I thought was, okay, now Vince being gone, now the stock's really going to be in trouble. And then it went way up and people were going like, hey, you know, and it actually the stuff about the sale had actually kind of started brewing in Wall Street before Vince was gone. You started hearing rumblings that people just expected like it was more likely to happen. And then as soon as it's been sold, it's like, okay, now there's all these stories going out of who's best to buy the company. And you know, with the sales been talked about since 2016. For sure. But, you know, now it's like, you know, it's closer to reality and I think the stock market reflected that. Okay, listen, we know Vince. And I guarantee he had never once ever even said the word retire. So for him to leave under the auspices of retiring, it's just not in that guy's DNA. What happened that week that day that made him do that so quickly? Is there something else coming out? I don't know of anything. I mean, there's people who are working on stories that I'm aware of, perhaps, you know, the board got something in the investigation or perhaps it was just that second story where, but I mean, you know, he was still in creative for a couple weeks after that second story and that one didn't seem to hurt that much. But obviously there was something huge and I'm sure it was not a voluntary decision, but it was one of those things where you are now in a position where you're going to hurt the company. And I do believe that if Vince McMahon thought that he was going to hurt the company by staying that he would leave. I think that's the one thing he would do. He's not going to take his legacy down. I mean, the WWE is his life legacy. He's going to be there long after he's gone. And I don't think he wants to be the one to take it down. I think he wants it to live forever. But, you know, like that one question that you're asking is still the big one unanswered question. Who said what to Vince? Right. Who said you got to go Vince, you really got to go. And I don't know who that is. And I don't know what the thing was, whether it was the, you know, the $7.5 million settlement or whether it's something new or just the idea that these stories are going to keep coming and keep coming and you're going to have to leave anyway. So this may be the time to leave. That's the thing. I think you had a great point of because there was some times where I would see some of the booking decisions that Vince was doing over the last couple of years and going, is he trying to be a doctor Frankenstein and, you know, this is my creation. If I can't, you know, own it, I'm going to kill it, but that's Vince would never do that either, you know? No, no, no. Look, you know, we always watch the shows and there's things that I look at and go, oh, God, you know? Nobody's a 100%. Yeah, what's he doing? But you know, I mean, the one thing is just like, you know, they were losing popularity. And that's one of the reasons that AEW was able to get where you got so quick. But in the last year, and especially not even I wouldn't even say the last year, the last few months, but even before the vin scandal. I mean, the Vince scandal definitely helped the ratings.

"Let's move on to the second important now because the first one we mentioned earlier and it comes out Vince steps down figuratively, but he's still on TV, tells everyone he's not going anywhere. What happened in that second report to make things where he was not as flippant about it anymore. So they had four allegations and a total of 12 million in payments, including a $7.5 million payment to a female restaurant which was interesting because the basic story of her is that she was in the company and the claim was that Vince coerced her into oral sex and then when she broke up whatever it was, she was demoted and then when her contract expired, she was let go. So she was never fired. And this was like 2005, 2006 when this was going on. And there's people who could sleuth and look at the people who were fired and kind of come down with, you know, there's maybe one person or a couple people that fit that bill. And then in 2018, the same person got the settlement. So she was quiet for a dozen years, didn't say anything. And then she got a settlement, but not just a settlement like 7.5 million. And there were a couple of other $1 million settlements. There was a $1 million settlement for an NDA on another woman having to do with John Warren itis. So that was the one where John was sealed if he wasn't sealed the first time. Like I knew, John laurinaitis is not a guy who's going to have two allegations against him publicly and be saved. Right. Vince McMahon, on the other hand, you know, all bets are off who knows. But the second one, because there were so many and it would total 12 million. And the fact that the company didn't know and didn't list it, you know, as far as there are publicly traded company, that was the SEC violations. And that's another thing. The SEC is doing investigation. There's a federal probe and all these things are going on on Vince. And so because of those things, it looks like that's why he had to step down. I mean, certainly temporarily, but it looks like it's, I mean, just because of everything I think it's got to be permanent, but the question is, he's still the number one stockholder. He is off. He did also leave the board of directors, which I think he had to. So he's got no title in the company he's gone from the company he created and Stephanie did the thing on television basically saying he's retired and thank you, Vince. And that's it. They never mention his name again. There's little hints here and there where they kind of say things are new. But yeah, his name hasn't been mentioned since the Stephanie thing. So going back to and once again, you can sleuth if you want to figure out who it might be or what the candidates are, but I don't want to talk about that. What I want to talk about is, why would the settlement be so big? Like you said 7 and a half $1 million. That's huge. That's huge. Yeah, but it might be because that's the one that really could have brought him down in 2018. In 2018, you know, Vince is way invincible. And then all of a sudden, somebody comes up with, you know, whether true or not, or she perceives it this way. And you know, people can perceive things different and go like, you know, you coerced me into sex and then you let me go and if I go public, it's kind of like that one would be a face and it would be someone who people would know from television. Right. Said, you know, and you know, most likely, the woman's probably not that this matters, but that diva era. So if someone who, you know, you look at and people will go, oh my God, you know, it's like, you know, she's hot, right? Right. So that kind of looks bad. You know, not to mention Vince being married, although I don't think, you know, it's funny because I don't think that the fact Vince was married has ever played in any of this because people completely accept that part. And that's the funny part too, and just to clarify what you're saying, the diva era that was diva search, where we're finding lingerie models and Playboy models and bringing them into wrestling. So by design, they were there to be there because they were because they were gorgeous women. But yeah, yeah, I don't think that that made the difference as much as just a face coming out and saying this. And then the public kind of like, you know, I mean, I guess the public is going to believe what they want to believe. But something else that it's really interesting to me, like you said, Vince in 18 being invincible, and now leaving so quickly, it really is kind of you think maybe because the whole me too era happened that that made it even worse for him. Absolutely. And also, you know, look at, I mean, much bigger fish than Vince have been, you know, have had to leave companies. Because when the thing first, when the second story came, that's when people were going to me and I was even going like, you know, I mean, there are people, you know, like Vince is so powerful in wrestling, but in the real world, there were people a lot more powerful than him that are gone from their companies and I mean, the one that surprised me in a sense, and he had to go, but I mean, I remember Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, and he was the king of cable news. This was like, this is a guy who's one man ratings juggernaut.

"Sure. Entertainment and whole. Yeah, I mean, I always figured that the managers of the rockstars, you know, I mean, I didn't know this I wasn't that close in rock music when I was a kid. But just from being around wrestling, I figured this happens in rock music and it happens in NFL teams and everywhere where stuff happens and someone complains and they pay money for it to go away and certainly that happened in wrestling. I mean, every now and then there would be something that would make when something would make the papers on somebody or somebody would get in trouble. I remember the thing that I would always hear from the talent, this is now we're talking to the early 80s. It was like, well, shouldn't the promoter of just pay this to go away? And to me, I was like, okay, that's a little weird, but then I realized that it's just inherent the promoter protects his main stars. And that's why the main stars did it because they were protected for the most part. I mean, you've heard all the stories of, you know, just the stuff of the understanding that, like in the territories, you could drive a 110 miles an hour. And if the cops pull you over in your house or on TV, you know, you know those stories. It was inherent, hey, you're tickets to the show. Thank you, give me an autograph from my kids. And you know, you basically had carte blanche to do not anything, but anything minor, they're going to just look the other way because you're a star. So let's talk quickly. So as we start getting towards the second report, what was the status at this time of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H because when Vince steps down, Stephanie steps in as the new CEO, but it wasn't just a month earlier or so when she was gone from the company. Yeah, me. So that was another shocker was in May when she took a leave of absence. And it's funny when it came out, it almost nobody knew about that that was coming, but there were people who did know. Right. And there was a reason. And I don't know the reason. Nobody would tell me. I mean, they would just say, there's a reason, you know, I kind of like that encouragement to dig, but like three people in the world know and all three of them aren't going to tell me, but there was a reason that she left. And then, you know, they filled her vacancy, you know, they filled her spot. It wasn't like she was going to go for a couple of months. I mean, they hired someone from Manchester United to hetero division. And so she's gone. And then when he steps down as CEO, she's the new interim CEO. So I hear that and I go, okay, he's stepping down figuratively. She's in the spot for a corporate reason. And he still had a creative. So I figured it's like, it's a cosmetic thing. I didn't think it was anything serious, but it was interesting that she left, you know, which was supposed to be for a long time, and I mean, I think the word was she would come back at some point, but no time soon. And now all of a sudden, she's essentially in the highest position in the company. And now, a couple of weeks later, you know, her and her husband, Paul, hunter, are basically running the entire wrestling into the company. Which is interesting too because when she left, there was almost kind of some derogatory statements made towards almost a little bit of a burial. Yeah. I mean, that one's really surprised me. And I had actually heard this from other reporters, and then it came out in Business Insider, the Business Insider website, newspaper, whatever. Where they basically said she wasn't good at her job. And that Vince was the one who made the decision to let her go. She was leaving and I knew that to be false. Like I was telling people I go, I know this to be false. I know she left on her own. Why are they burying her? I couldn't figure it out and people were, you know, everybody speculating why you would do that. And then here she is. It's like one of those things where I don't know. I mean, I just remember like certain people would be gone. You've been through this. People that you don't like, let's say, are gone from power and you're celebrating and it's like, you know, I'm never going to have to deal with them again. And then like 8 years later, all of a sudden, they're back in that position. And it's like, wait a minute. And maybe you've even been, you know, maybe you haven't, but I know people who have, you know, when they're gone, just buried them and buried them and buried them very publicly, then all of a sudden they're your boss, and then it's like, man. Oh yeah. You never know who's going to come back. You know, I mean, it's like people who you think are, you know, long gone from wrestling. That's why you never talk bad about your buddies when they break up with their girlfriend or their wives. If they come back, you're screwed. Yeah, yeah. So it's interesting too because at this point in time, Triple H was gone because he suffered the heart attack. Shane was let go 6 months prior. So at this quick point in time, there was no other McMahon's around, except for Vince. Well, Paul was back when Stephanie left. So he had actually just started working, but Shane was gone. But he was not, I mean, he was doing like NIL deals and scouting and things like that, where it's like he's got a job and he's important and he's, you know, taking pictures with people and everything. But it wasn't as if, you know, he was running creative for NXT for since the start of NXT and he was always involved in the creative situation. And that had kind of stopped. So yeah, it's another thing of like a guy who was out of creative and out of talent relations and now he's running both again. And you know, and that's probably a good thing. I mean, everyone's, you know, for the most part, I mean, there's uncertainty there, of course, but a lot of people are just excited to have been running it for so long that it was probably time in some ways for somebody new to just come in with new ideas.

"Day is finally come that I would say that I never saw coming and I probably gave a degree with me on this. Of course, Vince McMahon retired air quotes from the WWE and basically persona non grata in the company. A very, very quickly. Are you still a surprise as I am Dave that this sees even happened? I mean, the whole last, whatever it's been month, 6 weeks has been, it's blown my mind because, I mean, at some point he was going to be gone, but it was like, it was always going to be this monumental, incredible seismic shift in the world when it happened. And you know, you never expected to happen like right now. And then when the story started breaking, I started thinking, you know, it's really possible. And I know people who are friends of mine, you know, Silicon Valley, corporate, and they were telling me he's going to be gone. And I was kind of like, well, he may be, but this is wrestling and it's different. They go, this is a publicly traded company. And you can't do that stuff with employees. And the second story, when the second Wall Street Journal story happened, I read that and I thought, you know, he's going to be out. But then like a week later, it's kind of like, now he'll never leave. Then the day that it came out that he was resigning, it was like, oh my God, you know what I mean? It's like 40 years of my life has been chronicling Vince McMahon among many things, but more Vince McMahon than anything else. And it's like, you know, for both of us because you've worked there for, you know, starting in 99. 99, almost 20 years, yeah. Yeah, and you were following it since you were a child, Vince McMahon's wrestling. So it's like this huge part of both of our lives is like over all of a sudden, you know? And it was really, it was weird to deal with. It's interesting. I spoke to Alex Van Halen a couple months ago and he was saying when Eddie Van Halen passed away and it's like this whole 40 year career gone in one last breath. You know, and obviously Vince is still with us, but it reminded me of the same thing. 40 years plus of wrestling and Vincent van synonymous and then done, that quick, boom, gone. Yeah. And it really did surprise you because once again, maybe because, you know, you and I live within the kind of the wrestling bubble where it's like, it's just wrestling and nobody takes in the corporate world takes wrestling seriously and, you know, he beat the government and he's been through this scandal. He's been through that scandal and this one will just go away. I was really thinking for a while that it was just gonna be kind of a flash in the pan and then it Vince would just make it disappear like he did everything else. Yeah, and it's funny because it's like, it's like you know why he left in the big picture because of everything, but there's still unanswered questions of how did it actually go down like did the rest of the company go to him and go, you just have to leave or come to this conclusion that I have to leave because the walls are closing in on me because I mean like on July the second in Vegas when they had the pay per view money in the bank, he told all the town he's staying, you know? Right. And three weeks later, they find out he's gone. And you know, people who I talk to and probably you talk to, they were shocked because, I mean, their whole lives have been determined by Vince McMahon. Every one of them since the day they started in the company and now it's like what's going to happen and now we kind of know who's in charge of what now, you know, a couple of took a couple of days to figure all that out. And it was like, but we know, but it's like it's a different world in a different culture. And yeah, it's just, it's just so weird that no Vince McMahon and wrestling. Well, and like you said, too, he told the talent and obviously he was given kind of a proverbial, you know, maybe not a middle finger, but a shoulder shrug when he came out on TV. Right. You know, twice and not even to do anything substantial just to say, hey guys, here I am. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the first, especially the first time when it was the day that the story first broke and he came out and it was pretty clear, you know, the whole thing of like, hey, I'm going, you know what I mean? I'm going nowhere. Yeah. I mean, and then he actually left. Yeah. So let's kind of go back a bit and kind of talk about how this story all started brewing, and we could talk about some of some of his other big scandals in the past, but let's talk about this one specifically. When did we start hearing about it and were there kind of rumors swirling that something's coming up or was it just a report that came out of the blue a couple of months ago? The first report in The Wall Street Journal to me came out of the blue. I had no idea anything was up and it's funny because I got this text and it was from The Wall Street Journal and my phone and you know, I get text from them when it comes to news all the time.

"In this country. What has happened to Vince McMahon? Is he still in charge at WWE? It's unclear right now. This is a classic wrestling situation where the reality is so hard to parse because there are so many layers of ambiguity. When The Wall Street Journal allegations came out, the announcement was Vince McMahon will be stepping back, not stepping down, but stepping back as chairman and CEO and his daughter, Stephanie, was made the quote unquote interim chairman and CEO, interim between what, between Vince coming back, who knows. And Vince, even in the official announcement about how he's stepping back as chairman and CEO. They're like, they said, he'll retain control over creative. And like I said, creative is basically what he spent most of his time on anyway, so it's unclear how much power he actually gave up. And more importantly, more importantly than that, he appeared. So the show starts, right? And no one knows what's going to happen. But what happens is the show starts. And his music hits.

"Support for the program as you heard earlier comes from a podcast called are you sleeping to be quite honest? This morning when I was doing my whole slowly waking up thing, I could just hear this like what sounded like in the distance to someone like clipping their toenails, but it was bigger than that because I could hear it from my bedroom. It was almost like God was clipping her toenails outside or something. You know, I could not figure out what it was and it was preventing me from sleeping and it was annoying and I wondered if it was something sort of liminal, I don't know that I wasn't hearing, was it a hallucination? I have no idea. The point of the story is all sorts of things get in the way of our sleep, but our sleep is super important on a future episode of are you sleeping? You will meet Olympic bobsledder Lauren Gibbs. She's had some trouble sleeping and it's super important for her because hello, athlete, Olympic athlete in LS, check out are you sleeping? Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. Are you sleeping? Listen. I enjoy destroying lives. Today explained we're back with Abe reisman, Abe is a journalist and author of the forthcoming book ringmaster. Vince McMahon and the unmaking of America. So Abe, as you've described it, McMahon builds this world of hyper masculinity, women get almost no respect, but he's playing a character or so millions of people assume. And then you start looking into an allegation from 1984. What happened? Rita chatterton became the first female referee in the WWF. In 1984. Referees have a weird job in wrestling because it's not actually a legitimate athletic competition. So what's the referee doing there? Well, the referee is part of the story. What is her affiliation here with Alex no. Well, there it is. Wait a minute. This was a sucker job the whole way. What she's got teddy long turned the wrong way. Don't blame teddy long ladies and gentlemen. Look at this face first goes delo. The referee is the person who slaps the map three times for a three count when somebody pins or accepts the submission when somebody's in a submission hold. All of this stuff that's sort of key to the illusion of the match. And Rita trained to be a referee. So Rita started doing shows for the WWF that were assigned to her by the New York State Athletic Commission. And she pretty quickly gets a big bump up to being a referee at a match at Madison Square Garden. And the reason was, at the time, Vince was executing this storyline in the WWF that was ostensibly pro women's live. You better watch out because these are powerful words because this is a powerful woman and I'm a powerful manager now because you'll recall this where you have Cindy lauper getting involved as a manager for Wendy Richter. Cindy lauper, tell me about this lady to your immediate left. She's the chance. She's strong. She has new ideas. New purpose and new meaning. And she's gonna give a joke to women wrestling like never before. That's right. Rita gets this call from Vince McMahon in 1984 saying, hey, we want you to do a bunch of stuff for us because that's what they were highlighting was, you know, they wouldn't have used the word progressive, but you know, we're a company that cares about women. And long story short, Rita worked as a referee for the WWF for a couple of years. And then in 1986, she went to a TV taping, a series of matches in Poughkeepsie, New York to go get an audience with Vince, not even to referee, but to get an audience with Vince and ask, she could get more work. Vince's driver got out and opened the door, and I thought Vince was going to get out. But instead, Vince said demeanor read a come in here. He says, we'll just sit and talk here. I didn't think much of it. I got in the limo with him. Then started talking about magazines. Next thing I know Vince McMahon is unzipping his pants. And according to her that night, Vince raped her in his limo. When I couldn't complete his desires, he got really angry, started ripping off my jeans. Pulled me on top of him and told me, again, if I wanted to have a $1 million a year contract, I had to satisfy him. And if I didn't satisfy him, I was blackballed. That was it. I was done. Afterward, according to Rita, she contacted a lawyer. The lawyer told her because she had showered and not called the cops immediately. It was going to be a really hard case because Vince was very powerful and wealthy and she wasn't. So she didn't say anything. And then shortly after her father died, she gets a call from Geraldo Rivera's team. And sure enough, she appears on now it can be told and the Geraldo Rivera show to lodge this accusation. The very first time I met Vince, I was told that if I had any sexual relationships with anyone in the federation. I was done. My career was done. When Vince was said and done, Vince looked at me and said, do you remember what I told you about having sexual relationships with anyone? Well, you just did. And he just sat back and had this big smile and this big grin and she started laughing at me. What's odd is the story just sort of went away. It was something that people in wrestling sometimes knew about, but wrestling forgets its history very easily readily and often. At the time, did Vince McMahon have to answer, he did. And he answered by suing her and Geraldo and her I'll just produce her. And that scared her into silence to a certain extent. It was a lawsuit that scared her, and she basically disappeared for 30 years. And that was about as far as it got for a long time. One of the reasons Vince was able to beat these accusations for the most part, or at least have them kind of roll off his back, was especially as time went on. Vince started to portray himself as a heel. By the late 90s, he's appearing as the character, mister McMahon. What else is going to happen here? What is this? That's fishman. And mystery fans hold deal is that he's the ultimate heel. He's just a terrible person who will do nothing. We'll stop at nothing in his pursuit of power and victory. And that really works for Vince. And then in June of this year, The Wall Street Journal reports a big story about McMahon and it's kind of a bombshell. A paralegal who'd worked for the WWE, a friend of hers reached out to the WWE board and said, my friend had this sexual relationship with Vince, and he paid her to shut up about it. Out of his own money, I should say. According to the article, this was not the only hush money payment. The idea is there may be a long history of women being paid off not to talk. And we don't know what those situations are. Women are paid off not to talk for a wide array of reasons

"mcmahon" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Today explained I'm Noel king, and once upon a time, the early 1990s, I was a rabid fan of world wrestling entertainment. I loved a clothesline. I loved a pile driver. I loved rowdy Roddy Piper. Avery Smith was also a fan. Abe is a journalist and author of the forthcoming book ringmaster. Vince McMahon and the unmaking of America. Abe, who is Vince McMahon. Vince McMahon is the longtime owner and the overlord of world wrestling entertainment or what was once known as that. Now it's just WWE. You and God. Versus me. Vincent Kennedy McMahon and the product of my semen. It's my son's day. The short version is he's the guy who runs more wrestling and has run more wrestling in America than anyone else. I've gotten appetite for life and a lot more, more, more. So WWE is a massive corporation to $1 billion corporation that is not just about wrestling. It's a multimedia empire. They create content for a wide array of mediums and audiences. Welcome to McMahon's $1 million mania. Vince McMahon is very powerful, man. And that's often underestimated because wrestling isn't taken seriously. When did Vince McMahon become the chairman and CEO of WWE? You know, the title sort of changed somewhat arbitrarily, but it's almost like the titles don't matter nearly as much as the fact that just everyone knows Vince is in control. And he has been since 82 83 when he started taking over from his father, specifically the thing he spends his most time on is creative. The actual stuff that gets performed. Now a lot of CEOs or majority shareholders, whatever, would sort of stay out of the specifics. Bob chapek at Disney doesn't get to in the weeds with approving every single line in every single marvel movie script. But that's what Vince does with his own product. The hype leading up to the match is very carefully choreographed. Vince McMahon literally looks upon that hype the same way the producer of dynasty or Dallas looks at his screenplay. He retains an enormous amount of micromanaged control over what goes on in his programming. He's the promoter. That's the term from wrestling is promoter, the person who owns the promotion, the organization, where the wrestling happens. And that's unambiguously been Vince since the early 80s. And the rustling business, it's two or more individuals going out to the ring, rustling, having a little bit of applause or what have you from the audience in it's time to go home until the next match. That's not really what we do. We're in the sports entertainment business in the area is a huge philosophical difference. I wonder if this was a succession type situation. Was it always guaranteed that this was going to be the family business? Well, it was not guaranteed that Vince was going to inherit the family business for sure. Because he didn't. He had to buy it from his father. My dad was talking about selling out and that frightened me. So I knew there was just some way I had to get my hands on this company. He did a series of what are called balloon payments. Over the course of four quarters between 82 and 83, June 82 to June 83, he had to pay about a $1 million to his father and his father's co owners of what was then the capitol wrestling corporation. Vince senior had a lot of difficulties with Vince junior for lack of a better term. They had a lot of differences both in personality and business approach and Vince always says I knew my dad wouldn't really sold me the business had he known what I was going to do. Aha. What was he going to do? What was the big change? Vince's plan and he executed it was to take over wrestling. Vince McMahon, working with his wife Linda, begins building a national and international brand for wrestling. In the process, he will nearly decimate the existing wrestling establishment in a controversial offensive worthy of the military commander. At the time, wrestling was a regional art form. You would go to wrestling in your hometown and the wrestling there would be run by a promoter who only operated in that region. And Vince's goal was to sort of smash up the smoke filled room of old wrestling and take over. Now, there was going to be an earthquake in wrestling already was anyway with the advent of cable television, so something would have happened to break up the territory system anyway. But the fact is Vince was the one who was able to capitalize on it. Vince was the one who had a vision of taking this existing system and replacing it with his own. And for the most part, he did. It took a while to get to near monopoly status. And in 2001, he had no more major competitors. His vision came true.

Andrew McMahon Tackles Money Problems In "Paper Rain"

"Got an email from listener will who pointed us to a song with a heavy gambling theme. It's called paper. Rain by andrew mcmahon and the lyrics. Tell the story of someone who's desperate for money and needs to win and that's never a good thing but it makes her good song and it's definitely got some heavy gambling themes and vegas teams and even lyrics specifically about craps. I'm just going to read a couple of here for example. Oh las vegas. I'm running out of time. So obviously you know. He's he's going to go to las vegas to gamble the valley floor where the neons sores like a hand to heaven. I've got work to do role in them sevens. So there you go. Yeah and towards the end of the song even got a stack on the line and a stack behind rolling like a wave on a moonlit night. Money on the four money on the eight paying down the marker because the bank won't wait there you go. He's got a line bet with odds spent on the four and the eight for some reason. It's kind of an odd combo. But maybe he's got money on other numbers as well may. He's not a don't player so that's nice. That's good it's nice. I mean better. Chance for a big role. If he needs to pay off his dad's. You're winning five dollars on the don't doesn't make sense. No he's got a marker out that he's gotta pay yeah even though towards the beginning of it it looks like he was selling some stuff to a pawnbroker to get some money. So i don't know it's i think this guy's got himself into some financial straits here. Let's just say maybe maybe not anyway again. The song is paper rain and that sort of represents money raining down on you know. That's the paper paper. Money and the artist is andrew mcmahon. I'll put a link to his video in the show notes. Okay is there. Craps in the video. Yes it's interesting because the video tells a little bit of a different story then the lyrics in this version. There's a kid who kind of over. Here's his parents talking about how they don't have a lot of money and so he gets some money and dresses up to look older than he is and goes to like an underground casino is one of the games that he plays. Yeah all right so it borders on child endangerment yes right so you know whereas the song itself is about a guy who's really gotten himself into a terrible situation and he feels that gambling is the way out of it then. The video on top of that makes it a minor was trying to solve these problems. And so i don't know that we problematic smart. Yeah it all sounds pretty iffy to

You're talking about like babies and stuff that i thought people would find interesting in what the world is missing. Is the first amendment's right right. Exactly so i mean you were just running your normal instagram life. What triggered you start going. I actually know all of this. I should start telling people so they aren't dumb anymore. Yeah i mean that is a big motivation. Yeah let's make people less. Let's let him is here to me. Okay so there was actually a specific moment where i was scrolling facebook and i know it really is like my favorite place Screwing facebook and i saw a conversation that one of my friends was having with one of her friends. And i didn't know the other person they she was conversing with and i was internally like that is one hundred percent wrong a railway. Everything you were saying is wrong and at the end that moment either. I made the decision. I'm not gonna argue with strangers on the internet because that doesn't ever end well right. Nobody is ever like. I have seen the light teha. Thank you for yelling at me. All i got my mind that's correct. You've convinced me so. I decided i was going to do is just start making some little videos explaining. Here's how the electoral college works. Ears would blah blah blah. That people could refer back to and that they could drop a link into into their own comments section instead of me arguing with five hundred thousand strangers. When was this. when did it start. September twenty twenty. Oh my gosh. So less than a year half a million. that's insane it is it's fascinating. Yeah what do your real life friends think. Now you know it's mixed some of them. Are i have a couple that are like i. Don't i don't even understand what this is and some people who are like. I'm just like the most proud of you. Please don't forget me. You're like my house on my phone. I can't for early right yeah. Most of them are just super supportive. Already done teaching public school. Yes yes last year where you did. You have another job this taken over. Yeah i mean before. The pandemic been a professional photographer for a long time. That's right that's right. Yeah so. I've been working taking pictures of babies which is having that as a career. It's been a fantastic career. And then obviously coverted changed a lot for a lot of people and this cova gave me the time to do this. I was a very busy professional photographer. I had probably shot four hundred sessions a year old and i would have never had the time to be like. Let me make some videos about the electoral college. Especially knowing that i had clients waiting for me to edit their pictures right. If you're shooting. Four hundred sessions. You're editing four. Hundred such correct plus like twenty weddings a year which have a thousand pictures and each of them. So i always understand you you ever sleep minimal. Yeah yeah so yes. Covert gave me the time to do it. Do your kids. They don't love when you cry on the internet. No the which is understandable. They were teenagers are allowed to feelings. What did they think about the rest of this. What is your husband. Think about the rest of this. They think it's teenagers are like it's weird. Yeah you know. It's weird to them and especially because nobody else's mom is as weird as me. I don't like why can't you just normal mom that works at a bank and doesn't cry on the internet doesn't try on clothes on the internet and doesn't like why can't you work at a bank in just come home like other peoples but i will say that my son who is in college like the president of his university apparently is very like. Can you get your mom to come. He he he thinks now that he's giving a little bit of clout. Yes like that now. It's more going to start doing that. Or you can start. Speaking and stuff probably. Yeah yeah great idea. Okay like this. I mean i guess. I did get you out of your house. Are you going public and weird. What an idea. One of the things. I love what you teach us about government and i want us to talk about it but i think the actual thing you're an expert at is building community. That's what makes everybody stick around is not just how much you love wales and just how is the whales. Whales are so sweet also no way to that guy saw there were a lot of people who were real mad that i was questioning his story. A couple of weeks ago we just recap and then i'll ask you this community question kit. There's a story where a man who is like diving for lobster claims that a humpback whale swallowed him and he couldn't see anything in then it spit him out weeks ago. Not jona right. Yeah which you know. Maybe it happened. I wasn't there. But i only have room for the possibility sure. But also if it's pitch black inside a whale's mouth how were you able to say it was a humpback really detectives share like. Oh also this is a fifty foot long animal. Yes so as hundreds of thousands of pounds. And you didn't hear it you didn't you didn't see it. You said in your story said you could see the lots there. Were down there either way off. But he didn't see the three hundred. Thousand pounds elapsed. This big dome just doesn't equate now. You know whatever. I'm leaving room for the possibility that it really happened. And you also taught us very early and all this facts don't care about are feeling no fax. Don't care my feeling. And the fact is that's a hard story to that is a hard sell. That's hurt celtics. Yeah okay so you're just very good at making us all feel like we know each other. I mean your followers are called governor towards you gave us a name. Somebody else came up with the name which is a big deal about how you build community. Someone else wanted to have a name for the thing. You're building yep. Do how'd you do that. How did you learn how to build community like this. I am just walking through the open doors. Any that is what i am doing. There was no master plan of leg. And now let's execute step seventeen of the community building there. You're ascribing too much credit to me. I don't believe i hear you. You know some of it. Some of it is that. I have been a teacher and one of the things that you do in a classroom as you built community in that classroom. That could classroom community is extremely important and when your classroom. Community goes off the rails. Anybody who's been a teacher knows how challenging that is and so the culture building community building from the very beginning is crucial. When you're a teacher. So maybe i drew from some of that experience but i i certainly have had not had experience in like. Let's just all all of us get along. Yeah like that's i don't have any experience. Yeah actually really liked that. You don't make us all get along. I like when there'll be times the off seen it but they'll be times where she'll say okay if you lean left. Tell me how you feel about this now. If you lean right tell me how you feel about this. And then you'll post both you don't you don't have to have the same opinion to be able to enjoy each which is a lost art. It really is to enjoy someone who does not share your opinion right now in america. We have a standard for friendship is check all the boxes of like. How do you feel about this this this this and this and if we are not in alignment than we are not friends and that is not how it is supposed to be you know humans are actually not meant to get along that well you know like that is kind of by design because if we all get along perfectly agree on everything. There's no growth opportunity. Yeah if it's too easy you're not growing and if you cut out who doesn't agree with you. You will stop growing or you'll just a circle..

Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case

"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.
