Lot of talk about this in r/ wrestling .
Surely his behaviour was very well known for a very long time

There’s known and there’s “known”. If the board judged this particular situation to be capable of hurting the company’s value, that’s the only reason why they would act. Capitalism, eh?

Cam ehere to ask this

If the board has this dirt on you, anyone that fancies his job just has to bide their time to weaponise it

Like these stories are leaked to undermine him and force him to quit right?
It's just some other snakes want him gone.


Not that I have any great love for the guy - barely know anything about him - and if you are gonna fuck around like this you are signing your own figurative death warrant with your langer

The way the shares of the company worked the category of shares VKM owned guaranteed him control even if he didn't own most of the shares.

Similar story with the 2 Google lads, their shares are worth more votes.

I was a big fan of the wrestling in the 70's early 80's. I don't remember ever seeing Brian Glover in the ring but here he is!

Right, but doesn't the power of The Cancel give whoever wants him out more leverage?

Like you can't vote him out, so just drip drip drip bad news to the media til he falls on his sword?

Just a pet theory, no idea about what really happened

People who are like ‘OMG his hair!’ will not be prepared for how dark this family’s story gets.
Kerry's hair was cool. I didn't know he was dead until a few years ago. then I couldn't believe what I read about the tragedy of Kerry and his brothers.

on the channel Screensport in 1991 they used to show old US wrestling. things like Mean Mark Callis and a manager called Percy Pringle later paired together in the WWF as The Undertaker and Paul Bearer.

one thing they showed from about 1982 was Fritz Von Erich's (Kerry's father) farewell match.
they hired out the Dallas Cowboys stadium and sat the crowd of thousands at one end of the ground with the ring in front. All the Von Erich boys were on hand afterwards.
must have been a landmark big scale event just before WWF dominance.

I remember seeing guys the The Patriot and Al Perez in the Global Wrestling Federation (who ran the Sportatorium in Dallas after World Class merged with the Jarretts in Memphis) on Screensport around that time.
