Sources close to WWE mogul Vince McMahon report that even he — like millions of wrestling fans worldwide — is mostly indifferent to tonight’s Night of Champions pay-per-view.
“Vince has a take-it-or-leave-it attitude about this one,” a friend of McMahon’s told Kayfabe News on condition of anonymity. “He’s, like, meh.”
McMahon’s lackadaisical feelings toward the event reflect those of most wrestling fans, who are unanimously suffering from a condition known as “pay-per-view fatigue,” due to the oversaturation of the market with the expensive events.
McMahon was reportedly very excited about the SummerSlam pay-per-view last August, but has “burned out on wrestling lately,” according to the source, and can’t name most of the matches on tonight’s event.
“Vince says he might not even watch show tonight,” said the source. “Or if he does watch it, he’ll probably just stream it illegally instead of paying for it.”
