Russo opens today’s show by saying there are three types of people who hate him. The first are his peers in the wrestling business who are simply jealous of the things he accomplished in the business. The second group of people hate him due to his wrestling psychology and philosophy, because he places storylines and drama ahead of fake fights which simply don’t draw.
The third group of people hates him because he is completely honest at all times. When you’re that honest with everyone, you’re going to rub some people the wrong way on occasion. Nonetheless, he will not change the way he looks at the business of wrestling and he certainly won’t stop being honest.
Russo says that he’s very old-school when it comes to respecting the Flag of the United States and the Country in general. He says that while football players might have an issue with the current President, the Country and it’s National Anthem will be around long after Trump is out of office. He considers kneeling for the anthem to be a disrespectful act towards the country, not the President.
Russo informs that he worked an independent booking this past weekend, and he certainly doesn’t miss the travel that’s involved with working in the wrestling business. He says that he does an occasional booking because it’s his job, but he doesn’t enjoy it at all. When he’s on the road all he can think about is getting back home again.
