Vigil and Memorial for Vince



According to WWE.com, many fans have been stopping by the corporate headquarters (Titan Tower) in Stamford, Connecticut to leave their memorial tokens for the "presumed dead WWE chairman" Mr. Vince McMahon.

From WWE.com:

"Hundreds of baskets of carnations, sympathy cards, teddy bears, daisies and orchids lined the entrance to the Titan Tower as countless fans made a makeshift memorial to Mr. McMahon, who is presumed dead after the limousine he entered exploded at the end of Raw. Some preferred to leave pictures of the Chairman, while others placed toy replica belts of the ECW World Title he held briefly. But everyone WWE.com interviewed said that while they didn’t love Mr. McMahon, they respected him as a pioneer in the world of sports-entertainment and wanted to thank him for entertaining them all these years.

Do’ rags, candles and signs that read “Vince: The Real Icon,” “Long Live the Chairman,” and “The Immortal McMahon” were scattered among the throng of well-wishers gathered outside the Tower. The eyes of some WWE employees widened and some jaws dropped at the outpouring of love for Mr. McMahon.

“I have never seen anything like this,” said a receptionist at the headquarters. “It’s just amazing. … I could barely maneuver past the flower baskets when I returned from lunch.”"

Commenatary: It is unfortunate that if this story is true (about fans bringing flowers and other items), that some fans are spending unnecessary time and money on this storyline. Nonetheless, in the words of the WWE lawyer, Ed Kaufman, the show must go on.

I think that this whole story line is irresponsible and stupid. You just don't play with death. Totally ridiculous like all the crap they've done with Vicky Guererro since Eddie died. It's bad kharma - what goes around, comes around.
