 My Thoughts on TKO & Vinny Mac!!

Hey Wrestle Talk fans! I have been getting this question sent to me a lot as of late. What do I think about the new TKO Company, which is the merger of the WWE and UFC? Also, what are my thoughts on Vince McMahon being part of the new company? So, let’s talk about it!

In a previous column, I spoke about the WWE merger with the UFC, and I support this merger. I believe it will truly make this a super sports and entertainment company that will benefit the fans of both pro wrestling and MMA. Now, I was adamant that pro wrestlers should be hired as company employees and not as independent contractors, as they are currently being hired. I believe in providing wrestlers better pay, health insurance coverage, retirement plans and many benefits that they currently do not get as independent contractors.

The same goes for the fighters of the UFC. They need to be hired as company employees and offered better payoff, after fights and benefits. Both the WWE and UFC independently are very profitable, and they have made money for years off the backs of the wrestlers and MMA fighters. If you are building a new sports and entertainment company with this merger, then it’s time to better compensate those who are working for them. It’s not only the right thing to do, but the fair thing to do, for those individuals who put their bodies on the line to make both companies’ profits.

Now, let’s get into Vinny Mac! I don’t agree with Vince remaining as an authority figure of the WWE. Fortunately, he is no longer in charge of WWE creative, and Triple H was named the person in charge of creative by Endeavor, the parent company of the WWE and UFC. Now, many of you are probably sitting there saying, “There is no WWE without Vince McMahon.” Well, you’re right, to a certain extent, but when Vince stepped away before and Triple H was running creative, the company’s dynamic shifted, and it shifted for the better. Yes, you can credit Vince for making the WWE what it is now, but with the merger, it’s finally time for Triple H to be allowed take the WWE into another level. It’s time to do different things and move into different directions.

Everything eventually runs its course and I feel the era of Vince McMahon has done that, run its course. It’s time to let others come in and once again take this merger to another level. Vince McMahon Sr. can be credited for the creation of the WWF and Vince McMahon Jr. can be credited for the evolution of the WWE. The time to let someone else write the future of the WWE is now.
