* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Way back in 1997 a ''[[AmericanNewspapers New York Times]]'' writer named Phil Mushnick targeted professional wrestling. He hated the sport, hated the fans, wasn't content to change the channel and wanted to take away people's rights. Wrestling/JimCornette spoke his mind on the issue and after another segment where fan opinions were voiced Vince read out the address to send Mr. Mushnick their opinion, before stating he can think of a letter to send himself. At the time few knew Vinnie Mac ran the WWF and as owner he would rightly have a few choice comments to make.

*** Even WCW originally implied Vince was this to the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder [=nWo=]]] before scrapping the idea when WWE threatened to sue them... only for Vince to imply it even more when he brought in the [=nWo=] to be his [[TheDragon Dragons]] in his goal to kill his own company after he had purchased WCW, even going as far as being the one to kill the group altogether once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he had no need for them anymore]]. He also appeared directly on WCW television during the final episode of Nitro, playing the BigBad of both WWE AND WCW.

* MagnumOpus: Pro wrestling had long run on the spot show->arena show format(as much as people mock school gyms and bingo halls such venues have been the spine of the industry ever since it left the carnival). Television allowed a second layer of promotion to the big show(which is why so much TV was full of {{squash match}}es). It was Vince Jr who successfully added a third layer through pay per view and that, more than anything else, is his claim to revolutionizing the business. [=WrestleMania=] is what proved it could work and thus is always treated as most important, greatest, memorable thing ever on Vince Jr's shows.
