Vince Russo said just months ago that he would never speak to Vince McMahon again. The controversial former WWE writer was pivotal cog in the most successful time in the history of the company. Russo later left for WCW and was never again able to recapture that magic.
Since then, Vince Russo has made a career out of offering his opinions on professional wrestling. In general, if it isn’t something he would have written, he hates it. Russo couldn’t resist breaking his vow to never speak to Vince McMahon again and reached out to him via email to tell him what he thought of WWE’s product.
McMahon allegedly asked Russo to watch the product for a couple of weeks. Russo said he wouldn’t do it without getting paid and told McMahon the product stinks. On a recent appearance on Pounding The Meat, he shared the story of his contact with Mr. McMahon.
“A couple of months ago. I was offering my help as a consultant. I didn’t want to be hired, I’m never gonna work in that environment again but I was like, ‘Bro your show freaking sucks. Seriously, are you watching?’ It was that conversation all over again.
How that ended was Vince wanted me to watch Raw for a couple of weeks and give my feedback. I’m like bro I’ll be happy to do that, I ain’t doing that for free. Your product sucks bro, I’m willing to help you. I’m not gonna jump through hoops to help you. If you wanna pay me to critique the show for the next couple of months, I’ll be happy to do that. But I certainly was not gonna do that for free because the product is horrible. I was just looking to help the guy because the product is horrible!”
We will have to wait and see if Vince McMahon takes Vince Russo’s advice. Many fans think that the wrestling world has long since passed Russo by. It sounds like Russo doesn’t care and just wants to be paid.
