Cageside Countdown Nomination Thread: Reasons Why You Hate Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon is one of the most loved figures in wrestling history. He's also one of the most reviled figures in sports history. But what drives your hate for the WWE Chairman more than any other? That's where you come in.

Vince McMahon, for better or worse, is the greatest practitioner of wrestling promotion in the history of the planet. I know you want to argue this point, but... don't. Just don't. There are some that had better periods than Vince, there are many booked better than Vince, but over a long span, say... 35 years or so, it's Vince McMahon at #1, and everybody else fighting for second. Even at his worst, Vince is about as good as anyone at what he does.

But deep down in places you don't talk about in mixed company, you hate the man. And you probably should. He's wildly successful and he's wildly flawed. And he does some really, really, really awful things that are both awfully stupid and stupidly awful. I don't care if stupidly is a word, it sounds good, damnit!

Anyway, that's what this week's countdown is about...

Reasons why you hate Vince McMahon.

We don't want this to be kayfabe or storyline reasons why you hate the man. We want shoot reasons why you hate the man, myth and legend. This is your chance to let out your venom and anger against the chairman of the most successful wrestling...errrrrrr...sports entertainment company in the world.

But we will have structure to this, by God.

In the subject box (that's the skinny one, kids), write Nominate - (your reason you hate Vince). In the comment box (that's the bigger one), give an example that corresponds with your hate. Maybe even include pictures or links if you like.

Nominations close two days from date and time of post, with the countdown going up this Friday. So come on. Shout. Shout. Let it all out. Tell us all the things about Vince you can do without. Come on. I'm talking to you. Come on.
