Does every company that fails to deliver on obviously outlandish statements and suckers in plenty of dumbasses to buy their stock get sued, or just WWE?

If every company like that gets sued, how has the stock market survived?

LOL, the wrestling business would make Wall Street look like child's play.. Vince is a carnie, and runs an business that is thoroughly carnie in it's presentation. He destroyed the American wrestling industry through his business practices and, frankly, deserves just about everything he gets. On that note, the guy is a ruthless SOB who I cannot help but to admire. He may also be insane, like legit insane.

I feel the same way about Vince and his role in ruining the industry, but I can't help by like the bastard. Even as he was stabbing me in the back, I think I would like him.

There has been a WWE one on there before, but the only tab that I can't seem to get a WWE greenlight for is the geek tab. Then again, I don't know how political the Randy Orton poops in bags thread got; there was a lot of poop-related things so it was close enough I guess.

...I'm guessing the same guy that did the trendline for that is the guy that does the trend line for Anthony Watts' and Daily Fail's charts proving that no global warming has happened in 16 years.

/Starting/ending with an extreme outlier...yeah, that's real truthful.

no, that was an actually accurate YTD graph. You can look up the stock yourself.

Yeah, they were very stable at 8-10 bucks per share for ages until the dumbasses playing the market started believing the Network would being in a million zillion customers and the new TV contract would be worth a Googolplex Dollars and jacked the stock price up.

Playing the stock market is a lot like playing the casinos in Vegas; being smart is good, but being lucky is better.

The Network, while not exactly a flop, didn't pull in the numbers they were expecting and had the nice little bonus of pissing off cable/satellite companies to boot (DirecTV and Dish both ended up dropping WWE PPVs).

As for the TV deal.. well, not exactly sure what Vince OR Wall Street was expecting there, especially since the prime party they were negotiating with was NBCUniversal.. you know, the one owned by one of the cable companies you just pissed off? THE cable company? The one that already has a hate-on for streaming services? Yeah, that one. Not sure what leverage Vince thought he had over freakin COMCAST of all companies.
