During his interview with comicbook.com, Brian Gewirtz disputed the notion that Vince McMahon has lost his ability to promote. Here’s what he had to say:
I would say to anyone…the snarky ones who sit back and go, ‘The old man’s lost it,’ or ‘He’s not attached,’ or what have you, I would say you don’t mean Vince. I think the best example is us sitting around the room one day and then, almost at the top of his head, he pitches the entire Nexus angle — if you recall from 2010 when all the NXT guys turned on [John] Cena and stripped the ring. It was very, very highly buzzed about. It just seemed like maybe the idea did percolate in his head, but he verbalized it for the first time in the meeting. We were all looking at each other like, ‘Wow, that was absolutely amazing.’ He might not be up on the latest social trends or whatever, but the mad genius still exists and probably always will.
