They've really gotten lax on the dress code
Except for Vince, he upped his power tie game.
For real though I love his ties. Especially the ones with the knot that is a different color or pattern than the rest of it, as seen here
I don’t know if that’s considered fashionable or not but I guess when you’re a 73 year old billionaire you can wear whatever the fuck you want
I feel he owns only one color and type of suit from the last 5 or so years. Can’t recall seeing him in anything different as of late.
Its a whole portable office now, they construct and put in to place before putting up the entrance set piece.
Yea it used to be really just a table now it's like a whole damn room
I wish someone looked at me the way McMahon looks at ambrose. Every picture of the two I've seen together looks like he's absolutely enamored.
He may get the least pushed out of The Shield but I really think Vince loves the shit out of Dean. Like Vince, Dean had a fucked up childhood but he didn't let it stop him from being sucessful doing something he loves.
Vince would admire that.
Isn’t there a rumor that Vince’s lives vicariously through Dean? I remember hearing Vince loved all the goofy shit he did in his first feud with Seth (Hot dog cart, blow up doll, etc.)
Crazy how in the Attitude Era boom, backstage still looked like a minor league indy operation! Things sure got upgraded in recent years...
Oh, I thought your point was that they are similar and not much has changed.
You de realize it’s almost the same right? Just a few less wires? The walls behind them are just nicer because they are in newer arena that has nice wall paper
That's a portable wall.
That's... not entirely true.
Back in the day, it was whatever space they had on the other side of the curtain. For the past few years, Gorilla is literally the heart of the set.
It's the first thing they build, and they bring everything. Walls, flooring, it's got this big hanging roof with all this lighting. The desks roll in with everyone's stuff where they expect it. It's a pretty cool set up.

That cup is waiting to be knocked over.
Love Dean. Nice to see that Vince shares that sentiment.
Where is that Ambrose picture from?
Imagine that red cup spilling and damaging whatever set they have there
I wonder how many times Vince has just pissed in a bottle at Gorilla rather than run to the john mid-segment.
Literally every week for the past 30 years
Vince and Dean is wrestling's most interesting bromance that needs more light shed on it.
The new haircut & beard has done Dean a lot of favors
Sgt. Slaughter's disembodied head is freaking me out
“Where’s my Samoan, old man?”
Is this gorilla? I thought gorilla was the space between Vince and the curtain.
Yea you can’t see it in the picture but that’s where the curtain is at for them to walk on stage,
It’s virtually the same thing with a different wall and a modern monitor.
Vince still looking dapper as fuck
Where exactly is the gorilla position backstage? Is it near the entrance? Near Vince's office?
It's the room just behind the wrestler's entrance. On the episode of RAW where Roman goes straight to Vince earlier this year, this is Gorilla position.
It’s named after Gorilla Monsoon. Since it’s just before the curtain it’s where he’d give last minute advice before someone went out.
Those Vince's piss bottles next to the wall? Lol
Robert James Marella (June 4, 1937 – October 6, 1999), better known by his ring name of Gorilla Monsoon, was an American professional wrestler, play-by-play commentator, and booker.
Monsoon is famous for his run as a super-heavyweight main eventer, and later as the voice of the World Wrestling Federation, as commentator and backstage manager during the 1980s and 1990s. He also portrayed the on-screen role of WWF President from 1995 to 1997.
In professional wrestling, the staging area just behind the entrance curtain at an event, a position which Marella established and where he could often be found during WWF shows late in his career, is named the "Gorilla Position" in his honor.
