* 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.]]

* HeReallyCanAct: While Vince is more known for his work backstage or on the microphone, many agree he shows impressive talent in ring for a non wrestler, taking a lot of carnage and selling far more abuse than a lot of iconic superstars would be willing to. When you consider that he wanted to be a wrestler and the only reason he wasn't able to pursue that dream was because of his father, it makes you wonder how much talent he truly has.

* BaseBreaker: The greatest example in professional wrestling, with [[Wrestling/ChrisBenoit one notable exception.]] He's either an incredible businessman who took a carny-run business and turned it into an entertainment juggernaut, or he's a ruthless asshat that did everything in his power to crush his opposition and then [[{{Hypocrite}} whined about the same thing happening to him]].

* 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.
** As an epilogue, three months later Reigns violated the Wellness Policy, forcing the company to take the belt off him and suspend him, effectively flushing his two year-push down the toilet. The IWC promptly threw a massive celebration all across the Internet.[[note]]Seriously. Currently, the eighth highest upvoted thread of all time on [[Website/{{Reddit}} r/SquaredCircle]] is Roman's suspension. The fans were ''that'' happy.[[/note]]
* TheScrappy: Not character-wise -- where he's LoveToHate-able -- but in real life to endless amounts of smarks for his more recent business decisions such as turning the entire promotion PG, frequently pushing smark unfavorites (John Cena, Randy Orton, Big Show, Kane, Roman Reigns, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, The Bella Twins, etc.) at the expense of smark {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s (Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, The New Day, Kevin Owens, The Four Horsewomen, etc.), being a ControlFreak BadBoss seemingly everywhere he goes, making TakeThatAudience jokes toward said fans, and likely refusing to retire and/or show any leniency anytime soon.
** After ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2015'', Vince became so universally despised that fans were either demanding his outright dismissal or retirement, or ''[[DudeNotFunny hoping that he'd keel over and die already]]''. Practically all the XPacHeat that his [[CreatorsPet Creator's Pets]] besides [[spoiler:Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}]] have, primarily Wrestling/RomanReigns', got transferred to him and [[spoiler:Sheamus]] overnight, especially after reports came in the next day that [[spoiler:Vince booked the Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} cash-in simply because he didn't want Reigns to get booed]]. His current mismanagement of ''all'' the talent, not just the smark favorites, and unwillingness to evolve the product in any way to keep it interesting is destroying his reputation much in the vein of, ironically, Wrestling/EricBischoff, with many pointing out that if he continues to be at the helm, WWE will start to go down the way its chief rival, Wrestling/{{WCW}}, did, if it hasn't already.
