Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Hogan Refusing to Put Over Young Talent, Writing WCW with Bischoff, Relationship with HBK, More!

Russo is joined on todays’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane. They will cover part two of the April 10, 2000 episode of Monday Nitro.

Russo informs that he initially reached out to J.J. Dillon about going to work for WCW after having a meeting with Vince McMahon. Russo stressed that he wanted his wife to be able to move closer to her family, and he wanted to see his children more often. McMahon replied by saying that Russo has enough money to hire a nanny to take care of his children.

Russo did not appreciate that response and reached out to WCW. He knew that once he did that, his time in WWE was limited, whether he got a job in WCW or not. He informs that he doesn’t regret leaving WWE for WCW at this time at all, and he’d do the exact same thing tomorrow.

This episode was the first show that he and Eric Bischoff wrote together, and in spite of their differences, they managed to write some pretty good television together.
