## Politics: Vince is obviously a much better public speaker than Linda, but she had to run in his place because of irradiated skeletons that would tumble out of his closet if he did run for public office. He couldn't outright tell his audience to vote for Linda [=McMahon=] (only doing it tangentially by running ads saying "Stand Up for the WWE!" and "[=SmackDown=] Your Vote!", whatever those meant.) Linda lost the 2010 senate race, despite the wave of Republican victories that year. She lost again in 2012. (Campaign budget: -$97,000,000)

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: His entrance theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-s_XgRGjzg "No Chance in Hell"]] is so cool, he's never changed it even once.

* DudeNotFunny: Most humor in the WWE depends on CrossingTheLineTwice. However, when Vince decided to humiliate Wrestling/TrishStratus in 2000, he crossed the line and didn't manage to cross it a second time. In what was arguably the most offensive and sexist moment in wrestling history, he demanding she get on her knees and bark like a dog (which she did) and ''then'' order her to disrobe. Few of the fans found this funny in the least, even though Vince was in full-Heel mode at the time and doing his best to ''purposely'' act evil.

## WWE Restaurant: Vince was flush with cash in the 90s, so instead of spending it on, say, emplyoee bonuses or hiring more talent, he opened a restaurant in the Times Square and bought a football league (as you do). It's a Hard Rock Cafe now.

** He's either a creative genius who single-handedly birthed the cable wrestling industry as we know it, or a confused old man with an infantile sense of humor who holds way too much creative power. The one thing everyone generally agree on is that Vinnie Mac is a master showman.

** Out of {{Kayfabe}}, if you believe what Wrestling/{{Konnan}} said in his second major shoot interview with [=RFvideo=], the shameless and crass exploitation of the late Wrestling/EddieGuerrero could be considered this for Vince; according to Konnan ''nobody'' wanted to do it, even Steph and Trips were opposed to it, but Vince alone insisted on it so it went ahead.[[note]]Supposedly there was going to be even ''more'' to it, including a feud between Wrestling/ChrisBenoit and Wrestling/ChavoGuerreroJr over "Eddie's Estate", but it was canned when Chris put his foot down and flat-out refused to do it.[[/note]] If true, it basically shows Vince to be [[LackOfEmpathy a near-complete sociopath.]]
