Vince Russo's The Brand Recap - Disengaging From Social Media, Feuding With Fit Finlay, Battling Depression, More!

Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Disengaging From Social Media, Feuding With Fit Finlay, Battling Depression, More!

Russo is joined on today’s show by Big Vito.

Russo says he has just about had enough of social media. He’s sick of people spreading hate on Facebook and Twitter and he’s been blown away with the nerve of some people who’ve been attacking the President of the United States, Donald Trump. Vito agrees entirely and says that he and Russo were raised in a different era when they were taught to never disrespect the President, regardless of if you agree with his policies or not.

Vito says that things change in life all the time, sometimes for the worse, but spreading hate online accomplishes nothing. He says that he wakes up everyday wanting to be physical but he has terrible headaches and head issues stemming from his wrestling career that prevents him from wrestling or working a physical job. He doesn’t let this frustrate him to a point where he takes his anger out on others.

Russo says that he simply has to disengage from social media. He deleted his Facebook page recently after people began messaging his wife saying disrespectful things about him, and he didn’t want to put her through that any longer. He continued to use Twitter to promote his podcasts and to stay in contact with his fans, but after this weekend he has decided to disengage from all social media.



I'm a professional musician who plays drums in a band called Fairgale. I watch way too much sports and write about wrestling. I have a cat named Ted and he's fantastic.

    I have never used Twitter nor do i plan to. One reason is i can’t say the word “Tweet” without thinking i just sounded like a sissy boy. The other reason is that Twitter, i believe, is the MVP of social media. If you want to get your message across to millions of people the fastest way possible, this would be the way. Also the most dangerous. I think Russo did a lot of good things for the wrestling business, but seems to come across as a complainer with too many negatives. Maybe start putting some positives and compliments about what’s right in pro wrestling.

    Russo is an idiot.
