Details on Vince Russo’s Current Role with TNA Wrestling

Is Russo on the payroll?
- According to a report by PWInsider, Vince Russo is involved with TNA and on their payroll as a consultant. However, the current creative team is headed up by John Gaburick. Gaburick's three team members are David Lagana, Matt Conway, and Christy Hemme (who works with the Knockouts). The reported process for the team is that Gaburick sets the direction and comes up with ideas and helps with the team. The team then puts it to paper and writes a script.
Russo's role is to reportedly offer ideas and critiques of the televised product. The report compares everything in WWE going through Vince McMahon to everything in TNA going through Gaburick. So if there is an idea on Impact Wrestling that appears to be Russo-esque, it's possibly one that Gaburick received from Russo and opted to incorporate.
