    Again, this is too good of a position for me to apply for. I am WWE challenged.

    This guy must be a fan of Vince McMahon's arse or a jilted ex-lover if you watch TNA wrestling these days.

    "Demographic and psychographic." Not sure "psychographic" is even a word. But I'm going to try to find a way to wind it into a sentence tomorrow.
  10. In all seriousness, VKM is one of the biggest assholes in the world and a SHIT boss to work for. Not speaking from experience, but I've read a lot about him and the company and how he handles not only the talent, but others who work for him and no one has good things to say about the man.

    The ultimate application would include a storyline that ends with the prospective employee winning the world championship, preferably by beating Vince at Wrestlemania or Summer Slam.

    To be quite honest, though, I get far more enjoyment these days out of watching Celebrity Death Match. Now that is a show I would kill to write for, literally!
