You guys realize Vince McMahon isn’t really fired, right? They wouldn’t actually do that on live TV. It’s a show. I hate to be the guy that uses the “f” word when talking about wrestling, but… It was fake. Stop crying.
It’s a storyline. Triple H came out to his entrance music, for christ’s sake. All these people posting shit saying “THANK YOU VINCE” and going on and on about what a huge part of their lives he has been… You’re marks. You’re biting at the worm and getting hooked. You guys are suckers.
But what would wrestling (or sports entertainment) be without suckers? It’s actually kind of hilariously refreshing to see there are people out there who still buy in to it. So keep on marking out, marks. I almost kind of envy your naivete.
But seriously… You didn’t actually think that was real, right?
I mean you don’t think that, just as Vince McMahon was about to fire media darling and company cash-cow John Cena, Triple H, who apparently sits on the WWE board of directors, arrived just in time to come out to his theme music and tell Vince he was fired on live television, do you?
Think about it.
I’m not saying you can’t enjoy the show. I hope you do. I wish I could. I’m just saying you should really know, as a supposedly informed fan/audience member, that what you just witnessed was a television show.
There are people posting about how they are seriously crying right now. Because Vince McMahon just got fired. By Triple H. Live on Monday Night Raw.
Virtually every other origin for Superman goes out of its way to throw this under the bus in favor of complete and utter nonsense, and I seriously have no idea why. The fact that Superman wears an S because his name is Superman makes sense, which probably has something to do with the fact that in reality, Superman wears an S because his name is Superman. In Byrne’s version, just like in Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s creation of the character, he got the name, and then the letter. It’s that simple.
But for some reason, creators feel the need to fix what was never broken to begin with. Given Superman’s importance as a symbol, I can understand the desire to try to add significance to it as a Kryptonian crest or whatever, but that is both needlessly complex and ignores the fact that the reason this symbol means something is that Superman wears it, not the other way around. The symbol doesn’t need to mean anything beyond “Superman,” because Superman makes it mean something. In Earth One, however, J. Michael Straczynski goes in the opposite direction and strips it of all meaning by having it be something Pa Kent came up with after talking to an advertising executive in a calculated attempt to brand his son, and that might just end up being the absolute worst part of that piece of garbage.
