The Hollywood Reporter has a short interview with Vince McMahon, ahead of Monday's historic 1,000th episode of Monday Night RAW. During the interview, McMahon said the following in regards to the Monday Night ratings war:
Ted Turner was a bit of a battle [when he bought the World Championship Wrestling circuit]. Ted was part of Time Warner; that was difficult to compete with. But perseverance is extremely important in life and in business. The other guys got tired of traveling each and every week to do TV. They just didn't have the same passion we do. They were working for a paycheck. It was only a matter of time until they burned out.
McMahon also discussed "making" TV networks, the UFC, if he'll watch the Olympics and more, you can check it out at this link.
