  1. Ohhhh! So it was NXT that drove the brand split. All this time I thought it was because his superstars were getting injured but it turns out a company that can only be seen on the WWE Network droved him to the decision. Either Vince is senile as . or he’s just stupid/foolish just for the hell of it.

  2. then there’s this thing called “greed”, greed for more and more and more and more and more and more money (because he doesn’t have enough).

  3. Basically, all of the above. He’s senile, foolish, greedy, and the head of a virtual monopoly on a business.
