They pretty much called out the WWF, it's there (AWA) own fault they lost to the WWF. What if Verne didn't stiff a lot of the wrestlers towards the end, he could've done something
to compete with the WWF, so I don't get it Why did Verne stiff all those people? If he would've just paid them who knows what would've happend - Joe"
