Lane wonders if Swann will ever be able to get his wrestling career back on track, but Vito assumes that Swann is more concerned with his personal life at the moment. If he’s facing jail time that’ll put his priorities in focus very quickly, so Vito doubts wrestling is on his mind right now.
He points out that WWE has to suspend talents when these types of situations occur because if the talent is actually guilty of some crime that puts the company and its other employees at risk, they can’t be allowed back into the locker room. However, until Swann is proven guilty in this case, Vito thinks we need to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Vito points out that the public’s perception of people often dictates how they’re viewed by their employers and peers. For example, Vito questions whether John Laurinaitis was actually a nice person when he was in a powerful position in WWE. Vito says that the answer depends on the public’s perception of Laurinaitis because although Vito has his own opinion, that’s just one opinion in a sea of millions.
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
