• Vince McMahon Asked Vince Russo For His Opinion On The WWE RAW Product Recently
Old School WWF/WCW writer Vince Russo was recently interviewed on an episode of the ‘Pounding The Meat’ video podcast, where he revealed that he has actually been in contact with Vince McMahon not too long ago.
Russo claimed the legendary WWF/WWE promoter asked him his opinion on the current state of their weekly flagship TV show Monday Night RAW, and even wanted him to watch it for a few weeks to critique it for him.
Here’s what the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion had to say:
“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!”
Vince Russo was part of the World Wrestling Federation creative/booking/writing team from 1996 until he left for World Championship Wrestling in the fall of 1999, but was sent home (for the 2nd time) a year later in the fall of 2000.
Russo then joined Jeff Jarrett’s NWA-TNA promotion in 2002, but left in late 2004, before returning in 2006 and staying as the main creative writer until 2012.
