Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Visiting ‘Markaritaville’, Why do People Obsess Over Wrestling? More!
Russo informs that he found himself right in the middle of ‘Markaritaville’ this past weekend when he attended a wrestling convention in Monroe, NJ. He says he was amazed with what he saw at this convention, with thousands of marks spending money they probably didn’t have hand over fist as all the performers there urged them to continue to spend.
He says there’s nothing wrong with being a fan of something. He admits to being a mark for baseball and for certain films that he really enjoys, but supporting your favourite baseball team is normal. Lots of fans also pay to listen to Russo’s shows each week and that’s perfectly normal because it’s not an obsession. There’s a huge difference between supporting something and obsessing over something.
Russo says he had a lot of conversations with people at the convention and there were several common traits between each of the individuals. He says each of these individuals live and die by professional wrestling, and most of them are far too old to be that obsessed with something that really doesn’t matter.
