June 11th 2007 would be a day I will long remember for two things, first it marks the day my childhod friend Adeola passed on as well as the mysterious death of Vince MacMahon Jr. The question that bothers me the most is did Mr MacMahon see it coming ? I read on the WWE website that some weeks before his death he spoke of certain forces and a thick smoke rising in his unforseen future. While going through the pictures of the late WWE Chairman, I saw him leave the building with the look of a man yielding to the fate that awaited him without looking back and as he closed the door that was the chapter that closed his life. Did he forsee the tragedy or was it paranoia ? History is filled with people who forsaw their death, people like Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Tupac Shakur, Christopher Wallace and a host of others.
I agree that Vince got on so many nerves, stepped on many toes, got in a lot of people's way and faces yet he like a prohpet one whom we choose to ignore did forsee thick smoke in his future and surely there was thick smoke from the explosion of his limo about fifty feet in the air which gave the fire fighters a tough job. Like the poem of William Butler Yeats titled , 'An Irish Airman Forsees His Death' so did the the WWE Chairman forsee his death, a gruesome yet mysterious death. To his family I pray the fortitude to bear the loss and to Mr MacMahon I prays he finds rest in the abode of the Lord.
