Sept 5 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Vince McMahon: Creative Genius or Copycat?

As the title indicates, the question is asked after one of the worst Raw shows in recent (and probably long term) memory: is Vince McMahon a creative genius?  Was he at one time and the gift is gone?  Or is he someone who took the ideas from other companies and gets credit because he placed them on the biggest platform? Of course, we'll talk about this week's Raw and also cover how much territory bookers worked alone vs. bouncing ideas off of others and talk a little NFL on opening weekend.  By the way, if you venture over to our show thread on the board, you'll find a bonus question we'd love to have your opinion on.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!
