In an interview with Acorn Online, Vince McMahon discusses WrestleMania XXVI. possibly wrestling his final match this Sunday, and TNA moving its programming to Monday nights on Spike.
Regarding TNA, he doesn’t view them as competition as he feels they’re in different businesses. He then blasts the company for the heavy amount of blood featured.
“We’re in different businesses,” McMahon said. “We’re in the entertainment business and they’re in the ‘pro wrasslin’ business. It’s different markets. When they moved to Monday nights they threw the kitchen sink at us and only did a fraction of our audience. It doesn’t speak well for the type of product they’re trying to present with the tawdry, blood-soaked action. I don’t think that’s what the culture wants these days.”
McMahon then defends WWE’s PG-approach, adding that his company represents a true family affair.
“At heart I think we’ve always been a bit of a family affair,” McMahon said. “If you look at the audience for our live events you will see fathers and sons and mothers and sons and brothers and sisters. This is something an entire family can go out and enjoy together. It’s a lot like baseball in that respect.”
McMahon also suggested his match against Bret Hart on Sunday could be his last.
“I really much more prefer working behind the scenes as a director and a producer than being part of the action. I do hope this will be my last time in the ring, but I say that after every match I’m in,” McMahon said. “I’m 64 years old and while I’m in great physical condition and I never want to say never, I really don’t want to do this again.”
