It has been far too long since I looked at Robert O'Connor's Twitter:

Guessing from context here that Ryan Satin did some sort of interview with Vince that people don't like because Vince came off sympathetic?


For what it's worth, my take on the match was similar to Satin's.

No, it's that interview with McAfee that was supposed to kickstart a feud between the two at WM, but "plans changed" as usual since Vince only offered Pat a match at the show.

I'm probably gonna listen to it during the weekend, but apparently the interview came off as two pals shooting the shit together and Vince still being as witty, sharp and clear-headed despite being 76, which of course doesn't fit the dirtsheets' narrative of "he's senile, has dementia and general fed badding"

If he isn't senile, I feel like that's almost worse for them, in that even after all of this failure, he's still willfully blind to the fact that she'such if I had he is and has been doing isn't working.

Tony should make a plan for Miz, just because of this.

Well... Vince, because he draws more people to his show per average, the rights fees he gets for his shows are WAY more than the money people spend on PWG DVDs a year, and Vince books better storylines than PWG.

Vince needs TV Networks to air his show to get people to watch it?
When was the last time a PWG outdrew a WWE house show? Oh yeah. Never.


Also, "made pro wrestling famous for sexism and buffoonery?" Really?
1. People were throwing those allegations at pro wrestling long before Vince got into the business.
2. How is a chain of people sticking their thumbs up each other's butts not buffoonery?

Update from F4W:
The source of the independent study, or the study itself, that was cited in the original tweet wasn't identified by Khan.

However, Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live that Khan himself had commissioned the study using his analytics company and expects more information to come.

I mean, would it make this glorified Trump tweet any better/relevant?

EDIT : Oh right, April fools' day. It would need to be funny to qualify then.

No joke, this is concerning at this point. Does Tony have the thinnest skin on Earth and cannot believe anyone real would critique his show(s)? Do Warner execs breathe down his neck and whisper stuff like "TruTV at 10pm sounds pretty good, don't you agree Mr. Khan?"? Tony is a guy who's been breaking down under the pressure lately and most of his recent Twitter content reflects that. He needs help or he might become Herb Abrams 2.0 one day.

That would make it even worse somehow. This isn't an "independant study" if his own analytics company is involved, but then I wouldn't be shocked that people like Uncle Dave/Sean Fraud Simp/Blobsenspan/other reviewers/dirtsheets who totally aren't in Khan's backpocket do not understand what "independant" means.

if you hire a company to analyze what the negative opinions of your company are in order to address them, you obviously have to use your own data, if you can even consider social media as your 'own data'. It's called market research, every company does it. You're reaching flat earther levels against Khan

There are independent firms that di both the research and analysis. The fact that Khan owns the firm that did the research makes it by definition bot independent, and Tony should absolutely know that this is something that needed to be disclosed.
