This is a 30th Anniversary Card, and because it’s a card and not a list, no person appears more than once. That is the challenge of compiling such a ...

Raw Deal: WWE boss Vince McMahon cannot reinvent Sting

Vince McMahon has to tinker with everything. “Pro wrestling” can’t simply be called “pro wrestling.” No, it has to be “sports entertainment” — even if 99.9 percent of the public doesn’t recognize McMahon’s pet term.
