In light of this, several critics and fans demand a change in leadership and wish to see a fresh face pulling the strings behind the curtains. However, former WCW president Eric Bischoff feels that Vince McMahon’s abilities must not be discounted just yet.

“I think the WWE business model has become so much more complex and just the sheer volume of wrestling that WWE produces has changed the creative process dramatically so, it’s hard for me to comment,” said Bischoff, speaking with Michael Torres of Lucha Libre Online.

“I certainly think at any given point Vince McMahon can pull a rabbit out of his hat and create something very spectacular,” said Bischoff. “Vince McMahon has clearly demonstrated a tremendous amount of creative horsepower and intellect. I just think that the nature of the business has changed so much that for viewers, we just don’t feel it anymore.”
