My uncle, Sam Muchnick, sold out the St. Louis Arena for his last show on January 1, 1982, and retired, wealthy and happy, at age 76.

Later that year Vincent K. McMahon and his wife Linda bought the wrestling company controlling the Northeast territory from his father, Vincent J. McMahon, and Vince Senior’s partners.

You’re going to have to do better than that, “Burt.”
