* PyrrhicVictory: Congratulations, Vince! You finally got Roman Reigns his Wrestlemania Moment by having him pin Triple H clean as a whistle in the main event of Wrestlemania 32…you just had to deal with massive ratings declines, a widespread apathy for the WWE product, and ignore the countless pleas from fans, analysts, and ''former WWE superstars like StoneColdSteveAustin'' begging you to turn Reigns heel [[note]] It is a very time-tested method in professional wrestling for bland characters to turn heel, because that allows them to be more creative and then come up with a quirk that allows the fans to start cheering for them: for example, The Rock started to get cheered as a heel because of his douchebag, cocky promos. Mick Foley turned face because fans started to be sympathetic to Mankind, that pain-intolerant Muppet. Stone Cold got over because who ''hasn't'' dreamed of kicking their boss' ass? Reigns is currently criticized because there is no ''reason'' to cheer him: he's just sort of…there. [[/note]] instead of carrying on with his currently bland babyface character. You got your boy his moment: you just might have kneecapped your company to do it.

* ProtectionFromEditors: That's the best part about having a dynasty: you can afford not to give a damn what the internet thinks.
-->'''IWC''': Vince doesn't understand tag teams and how they could draw!\\
'''Vince''': ''*rolls in money*''\\
'''IWC''': Vince just pushes big guys instead of great wrestlers!\\
'''Vince''': ''*rolls in money*''\\
'''IWC''': Vince is a millionaire that SHOULD be a billionaire!\\

* HilariousInHindsight: After ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' became popular in the west, people made a ''lot'' of mashups of the already memetic "it's me, Austin!" and "it was me, Dio!" clips.

*** Others think that he's really cooked up this elaborate "New Coke" plan, where Reigns becomes such a ReplacementScrappy that fans, smarks or otherwise, will support Cena if they feud or when Cena (inevitably) wins his sixteenth world title. This was because many smarks, after having to endure Reigns being the sole focus of the show while Cena took time off, actively began to miss Cena and praise him over Reigns.

If this is true, then Vince may be the greatest MagnificentBastard in wrestling history for concocting the slowest burn of a storyline to get his preferred guy over after a decade of mixed to negative reactions. If it isn't, then he's lost his goddamn mind and is out of touch with not just the audience, but also reality.

** PoisonOakEpilepticTrees: 2015 did not start out promising, and aside from some genuinely shocking moments, it ended up being a terrible year of booking disasters where practically the entire roster got buried to put Wrestling/RomanReigns over as the new face of the company, all the while Reigns' character was micromanaged to make him another Wrestling/JohnCena, to the point that many are starting to pity the performer for having to try and get over with such a bad character. By the time of ''Survivor Series'', RAW had lost over a million viewers, a quarter of their usual viewership. Things have gotten so bad that the more cynical are starting to wonder if Vince is ''deliberately'' sabotaging the company. That way, when he finally croaks, the company dies with him and people will say that the only reason WWE was successful was because of him.

* FatalFlaw: It's often been said that with Vince, it's either his way or the highway. He would rather make a hundred dollars with his own idea than a million dollars with someone else's, owing to his downright excessive ExecutiveMeddling. This extends to the performers under his employ, where Wrestling/KevinNash once said that Vince would rather make his own star rather than ''a'' star. While this has been beneficial at times, over the years it's become blatantly clear that it's also a detriment as Vince has become more out of touch with the modern wrestling audience. Those who look at history more objectively these days point out that the Wrestling/AttitudeEra, the company's most profitable and successful period, was basically just Vince removing the leash and letting the performers run wild and do what they want. Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin and Wrestling/TheRock, the two biggest stars from that period, were basically playing themselves, but turned UpToEleven. These days, as wrestling enters a downtrend, it's been noted that the working environment in the company has become creatively stifling, with the characters of several superstars, most notably Wrestling/RomanReigns, having been micromanaged, and that management has been in-fighting over the creative direction of the overall product. Vince, as the one who has the final say, thus gets most of the blame for the terrible/predictable/bland booking decisions that are made, with many fans actively wishing for him to step down so Hunter can take over, as it's obvious that Vince has no idea what the fans want anymore.
