On March 23, 2001, Vince McMahon bought WCW for the bargain-basement price of about $2 million. How was he able to swoop in and buy up what had been his biggest rival, and a company that had nearly put the McMahons out of business? It’s an incredible story that involves Ted Turner, Eric Bischoff, USA Network, the XFL, Spike TV, and even Paul Heyman and ECW. Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter returns to help tell the story of that time that Vince bought WCW.
