Russo says that the wrestling media really turned his stomach again this week. Unfortunately Paige’s phone was hacked and some personal pictures and videos were released to the public without her consent this past week. While the media made posts saying how sad this situation is, the majority of them shared the pictures themselves which Russo thought was ridiculous.
It’s obvious to him that the majority of these media outlets were only publishing these stories for ‘clicks’ and they have no regard for Paige ‘the human being’ in this case. He says he loves Paige’s family, and Paige is still very young. When you’re in the public eye like Paige is, people are going to take shots at you and you have to be so careful with everything, especially elements of your private life.
Russo welcomes Ken Shamrock back to the show for part two of their interview.
Russo tells Shamrock that he pitched the ‘Brawl for All’ idea to Vince McMahon because he though JBL was a bully, and he wanted to see one of the other wrestlers legitimately put JBL in his place. Shamrock laughs because he didn’t know that before.
