• Former WWF Writer Says Working With Christian Drove Him Crazy
During a recent edition of Writing With Russo, former WWF writer Vince Russo talked about working with Christian in TNA Wrestling.
Russo said they had to tape multiple shows in a day due to TNA’s financial issues and Christian would take a lot of times to prepare for his stuff.
Here’s what Russo said:
“First of all, I worked with Christian. Christian and I didn’t have a wonderful marriage, and I’ll tell you why. When I worked with Christian…when you do pre-tapes, especially when you are taping various shows in a day – and we had to do that with TNA because they didn’t have the money, so sometimes we would have to tape 4 or 5 shows a day, Ok?
When I had to do pre-tapes with Christian, he would overanalyze and practice. Bro, for hours. For hours! It’s like, you know, yeah, I appreciate the professionalism, but bro, we gotta go! We gotta get this sh*t done! We’ve gotta go.
So, it drove me freaking crazy!”
Christian recently came out of retirement during the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match.
