Russo is joined on today’s show by Big Vito.
Russo informs that his first love was working on radio, and he’s been constantly looking to return to the radio booth for 26 years. He mentions that editing the WWE Magazine and writing professional wrestling kind of just fell in his lap and he never had a passion to do either of those things. For that reason he simply treated those things as a job and he felt bad about that for many years because everyone around him had a real passion for the wrestling business.
He says that having to wake up in the morning and go to work at a job that you hate has to be the worst thing in life. Vito agrees and mentions that he’s been in that situation in the past. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and get through the tough times in order to get to the spot you want to be in life.
Russo informs that he has started hosting a local radio show in Colorado, and he had Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler on the show as his first guest this past week. They discussed Andy Kaufman’s involvement in Memphis Wrestling and the new Netflix documentary, ‘Jim & Andy’. Russo points out that Kaufman and Lawler were 30 years ahead of their time in the sense that they incorporated a mainstream celebrity into a wrestling angle.
