    Vince just one day wakes up and decides he wants rid of WWE and he wants to sell to a non family member. You stump up the cash and are now the NEW owner. Tell me what changes will you make? What stars will you bring in? Who will you push? Let me know here.

    Hmm.... Interesting question.... oh the possibilities! :p

    Let's see.... Firstly i'd run through the WWE roster and trim the fat. There's a long list of wrestlers who i would get rid of. People like Kozlov, Khali and Batista... and many more. Basically, i'd try and make the WWE the world's ultimate wrestling company. Anyone who doesn't have an extremely high degree of wrestling ability would be cut. No matter how over they are with the fans. It'd be a complete revamp of the WWE roster, to one that would be based on exciting and varied wrestling. There would be a LOT of cuts.

    People i'd push... Morrison would be the new face of WWE. I'd let him run loose. He'd be the kind of edgy superstar that would have been popular during the attitude era. With an added few acting/promo lessons. Jack Swagger and Evan Bourne would be two other wrestlers that i'd really push.

    Wrestlers i'd like to bring in.... I'd bring in a few established tag teams and really boost the tag team division. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin from TNA and Korey Chavis and Jon Davis from ROH are two examples of tag teams i'd bring in. As for singles stars.... Austin Aries and AJ Styles would probably be top of the list, if they'd come.

    Two personalities that i'd love to bring in would be Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff. Besides being fantastic personalities, they'd both be great people to have in terms of creative writing. If all goes well, it'd end up being a wrestling boom not seen since the late 90's! Now all i have to do is wait for the call from Vinnie Mac giving me his company :p

    I agree with Wooly, I would get rid of the real bad wrestlers, and would try to sign guys like Styles, and others.

    I would definitely hire Eric Bishoff back, he's a genius. I would move Edge to Raw, and make him champion right away. I would turn Cena Heel. I would give a huge push to DiBiase and Morrision, just to see if they can really handle it.

    What I would do is end the damn Brand Extension. I would make sure nobody has creative control of their characters so they do as I say. I would cut deadwood such as Chavo, Funaki etc. I would try and make deals with companies such as ROH and New Japan or NOAH to trade talent to make things more interesting. And a big one for me would be to push the younger and smaller talent such as Matt Sydal, TJ Wilson etc and truly make a Cruiserweight Division to be proud of.

    My first order of business is to finally ditch MC Whitey.

    After that guys along the lines of Khali and Kozlov are next on the chopping block. I'd bring back the cruiserweight title and utilize it appropriately, creating something that blows TNA's X Division out of the water. I do my best to get the AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Colt Cabana's, Jack Evan's, Teddy Hart's and the Briscoes of the world.

    Oh and lastly I rename ECW to Tuesday Night Velocity, the way it should be.

    I'd bring back the Hardcore title. I'd create a time machine and go back to 1998. I would split the company into three parts, and sell two of them. That would give me some competition and a reason to try my hardest to make a great show every week. It'd also give me one set of belts. I'd try to get The Rock, Mick Foley, Stone Cold and Sting back into the WWE in some form. I'd make Kane come back in a few years, with his mask and have one last feud with The Undertaker. I would ban Cena from starring in any of my movies.

    I dont know that I'd make too many changes. I think I'd go for a more PG13 approach and not PG. I dont think the attitude era stuff is appropriate but somewhere in the middle would be nice.

    My top stars would include some of the names that are there now...Orton, Cena, Edge, etc. I would also try and establish some fresh faces for the main event scene as well.

    More importance to tag team wrestling

    More importance to the IC and US titles

    I would also bring back the cruiserweight title and utlilize it properly

    I would create a television title and the champion would be forced to defend it every week on whichever show they want

    the divas title would be eliminated

    ECW would remain how it is...a borderline minor leagues on free television

    Put JR and King back together, make Matt Striker a heel announcer and find someone to replace Todd Grisham

    Thats enough for now

    You don't miss the attitude era stuff? I am surprised they have made it PG, as the stuff on TV has gotten racier and more violent. I mean you have shows with lots of profanity and even sex on TV now, and not just the pay channels. It's weird to see a wrestling show go the other way.

    I miss it to the extent that I dont like the PG approach but I dont think it's necessary to bring back a full-fledge attitude era. I love seeing half naked chicks and all but I dont think having bra and panties matches are relevant or needed. I'd rather see a good match then stuff like that.

    I mean back then you had cursing Steve Austin, The Godfather and his hoes, a porn star, big boobed chicks waltzing around the WWE half nude (or breasts exposed if you saw the PPV in which the Kat took her top off), the Rock telling people to stick stuff up their asses and on and on and on. All of that stuff was awesome for that time frame and I wouldnt mind some attitude come back but not to that extreme.

    On top of all that you have Vince Russo changing title holders at ridiculous rates. Thank God McMahon was there...you cant even imagine some of the stuff he probably wanted to do but Vinny Mac wouldnt let on television. It was a fun era but it's over...I was in high school at the time of it all...perfect timing for me.

    Unity and I used to have serious discussions in the morning before class about WWE and WCW the night before...good times.
