Various News: Russo Starting Podcast, Talks About Vince McMahon Losing His Edge
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.25.2014

- Vince Russo posted the following on Twitter, revealing that he's starting his own podcast next month:

- Russo did an interview with the WrestleReaction Radio Show. Check out the video and highlights below:

On Vince McMahon's loss of competitive edge: "In my opinion, the Vince McMahon before the purchase of WCW, was a different Vince McMahon. The Vince McMahon I worked for was a freakin killer. He would do anything to be number one. He would slice your throat, rip your eyes out, it didn't matter. When I went back and met with him in 2002, he was a different guy. And I remember, I even said to Vince, where is your bravado? What happened? And I think once he was able to buy WCW, which I think was a tremendous goal of his, his ultimate goal. Everybody knows the history between him and Ted Turner. When that happened, there was nothing else. What else could Vince possibly combat and defeat in his life?! It's like when a team wins the World Series, the next year they suck. Once you obtain that achievement, it's downhill from there. I really think Vince lost a lot of his competitive edge when he bought WCW. Maybe add on 11 mins."

On Raw's main event booking: "The hottest guy they've got on that show right now is Bray Wyatt. You've got a tag team match of 7 guys out there. So, first of all, you're making Bray Wyatt 1 of 7 guys. So now, all of a sudden, he's like everyone else. He's not special anymore. Then, to not give him the last entrance, to introduce Del Rio after him? I'm sorry bro but there's no excuse for that. That's creative 101. How do you not bring this guy out last? You kill the lights, have that effect in the crowd with all the (cell phone) lights, have the guy do something devastating off the bat. Where's Vince on this? Where's the great filter he was?"

On people blaming him for the fall of WCW: "Here's what people don't understand, and this is a shoot. The thing that always aggravates the crap out of me is that "I'm always making excuses for WCW". When Ed (Ferrara) and I first started, the rating before that was a 2.9. 3 months later it was a 3.6. So right there, what am I making excuses for? We walked into a 2.9. When they decided they wanted a change, it was a 3.6. I don't know what I'm making an excuse for. I was there for only 2 weeks, and that merger (AOL Time Warner) came down. 2 weeks I was on the job! And as soon as that merger came down, little by little, you knew that these guys did not want to be in the wrestling business. You knew where this thing was headed. We could've gotten the rating up to a 4, 5, or 6, it wouldn't have mattered. They just didn't want to be in the wrestling business. To blame me, or to blame Eric (Bischoff), or to blame Hulk (Hogan), it's so ridiculous!"
