Triple H took over as WWE’s head of Creative after Vince McMahon retired. Since then, a lot of changes have been seen in the company. Vince Russo also made a very interesting claim recently.
Vince Russo has not worked directly with WWE since leaving the company in 2002, for the second time. He went on to work in TNA Impact Wrestling and was criticized for that fact.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Vince Russo confirmed that he began his new role as a consultant for the USA Network shortly before WrestleMania 36 in 2020.
“I’ve been keeping a little secret for the last two+ years. I want to come clean. Well, bro, I’m going to break the news to you on this show. I have not said this publicly before. From March, pre-Mania, bro, it was right before Mania in 2020, up until this past Mania in 2022. So basically, bro, for two years, I was consulting for the USA Network. For two years, bro, the USA Network paid me very, very, very well.
Now, if you want to know how this came about, let’s take a couple of steps back, and I will explain it to you. I got in contact with the Vice President at the USA Network, who was overseeing RAW. He knew who I was, called me back immediately, and we had a long discussion. So the first thing he did was he went directly to Vince McMahon.”
We will have to see how this story progresses. Ringside News exclusively reported that Russo was pitching his services to USA Network in hopes that it would connect him with Vince McMahon. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more updates.
