Russo opens today’s show by saying he’s ecstatic that Jeff Jarrett has checked into a rehab facility. He has known Jarrett for an awfully long time and for a good portion of that time they were very close friends. Russo even considered him a brother at one point and he became very close with Jarrett’s wife and children, but creative differences came between them in the last few years.
Nonetheless this isn’t about business, this is a personal matter and he’s so happy that his old friend is finally getting some help. He says that few people have a heart as big as Jarrett’s, and he hopes Jarrett has a speedy recovery.
Russo informs that he recently shot the first two instalments of ‘Vince Russo’s Attitude’ for KayFabe Commentaries. This show will centre around Russo sitting down with old stars from the Attitude Era and reminiscing about those times. The first two guests are Terri Runnels and Ken Shamrock, and those interviews will be released on DVD in the coming months.
He says that he could barely believe his eyes when Shamrock walked into the room. He’s 53 years old and he’s impeccable shape. Russo has no idea how a 53-year old man can look that good when ‘main eventers’ like Sami Zayn can’t even get in shape.
