  • Middleton is a tool. Tunney was WWF PRESIDENT. Middleton, you know what the WWF is…right?

    Nice job at fact checking Marc lol. I doubt he was even born or into wrestling when Tunney was around. Those were the heyday of storylines and man how I miss them.

    I sure as hell hope WWE gets a clue from that name drop and actually has storylines instead of angles but the talent should be very involved in them as they were back in the day.

    Make yourself a star and you’ll have yourself to congratulate.

    Wish I could edit. Had no* real power.

    Tunney had to real power. He was more like what JJ Dillon was in WCW in the 90’s. Total storyline stuff but it was great.

  • D2K

    Vince bought out some of the Canadian territories that Jack Tunney promoted, so he gave him an on-screen role as WWF President as a favor. And yes, Tunney retained REAL control over those territories.

    As I recall, He had no actual authority, but played the “President of the WWE” due to his authoritative look.

  • blah

    yes he was, i think in “real” life he was in charge of WWF Canada

  • Darrow

    Wasn’t Tunney around before there were Commissioners or General Managers? He was the WWF President until Monsoon took over.
