He always had an overiding desire to be the "best" at something. And he'll go down in history thusly.

Loss of popularity is gain of infamy. Change of image, need to make money somehow.

For all your cage fight announcements and underground poker parties.

Totally out of character together with the reality of a landslide of consequential legal actions against him.

Without an apology expect no redemption.
