What was suppossed to be "Vince McMahon Aprecciation Night", abruptly turned in to a night of tragedy. Just as Monday Night Raw was going to go off air, fans witnessed McMahon step into his limo which almost instantly, and literally exploded. Accordng to wwe.com, Vince is presumed dead. You can go to wwe.com for further details.

Its their way of sending him off the show. I think he might actually be stepping down for a bit and taking a long over due vacation. What a great send off that was--

Don't believe for a second that it wasn't already planned

Thank god Benoit went to ECW, if they give him the ECW belt it would almost be instant credibility returned back!

I agree, last nights RAW was probably the best in a LONG time. I knew something was coming at the very end with the silence and way they were all acting. Especially when Vince kept looking back at the 2 guys who were eating and laughing at them.

I hope they are "killing" off his character for good (I know its a pipe dream)

You never know. Vince is in his what late 60's? Shane is going to have to truly take over at some point. Perhaps Vince is giving him that shot now so when he no longer can do it himself, he will noth ave to worry about Shane/triple H ruining the company later on.

Then again Vince could really be sick as well. I seriously doubt that he shaved his head for the sport. I bet he had to do it for some medical procedure and just worked shaving his head into the story line

Well it is well known Vince took steroids so it would not be a shock in the least if he has some medical issues related to that.

However, the company will fall to Stephanie (or at least it was set to). Shane really wants no part outside of the performing aspect and financials, he takes after his mother and worries more about the moeny then the creative. When Vince decides to step down the company will turn to Stephanie and HHH to be run, that is not entirely a good thing either.

I kinda hate when they make light of death issues in wrestling since it happened for real way too often. The selling of it and the ten bell salute bugged me.

I agree with what Mark said about the company falling to Stephanie, in more ways than one. I think HHH would be better behind the scenes anyway. Once he's on air he'll be back to hogging the spotlight.

From what I've read it looks like they're going to run a who tried to kill Vince storyline. I would have prefered if he would have been carted off in a straight jacket to a mental health facility to get him off of tv.

I agree, he was really pulling off the crazy very well so it would have been great to have him committed. That way he could be gone for a year or so and come back refreshed with a motive to actually use in the storylines.

But it has people talking about wrestling in general again so I guess there is no such thing as negative publicity.

so...who do you think did it?

I heard rumors saying that Sid wanted to come back to WWE. He would be the perfect guy to blame for Vince's *fake* death.

It just needs to end, I am disgusted in what they did to "honor" him and how they continue to play it out.

Sid is a hack, if he comes back that will just piss off more people in the company as well as keep moral down because Vince has a hard on for big monster style men.

I dunno, generally I could give a rat's tail about Sid, but he's been gone for such a long time and you know if he comes back we'll see the ankle snap re-aired again. It can't be worse than Mark Henry or the other big stiffs in Vince's stable. I still remember how the "smart" ECW fans cheered for Sid even though he sucks in the ring.

I hope Monday's Raw ends this stupid angle with the "Who killed Vince" stuff. I know I'll be flipping back and forth with Kyle XY while this is going on.
