• Vince Russo Didn’t Like Former AEW Champions In TNA
Former AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks used to wrestle for Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) from December 2009 until July 2011 under the team name ‘Generation Me’.
On the newest episode of his weekly ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend Bruce Prichard (aka Brother Love) revealed that TNA head-booker/writer Vince Russo wasn’t exactly a fan of Young Bucks and ended up not having any more ideas for them to appear on TV.
Here’s what Bruce said:
“The Young Bucks, when they were in TNA, came to me and said, ‘We can make more on the independents’. I knew that Russo did not have anything for them and was not high on them.
They told me they can make more on the independents and I said, ‘Man, go make more on the independents’. They said ‘Can we have our release?’. I said, ‘Yes, right now you can have your release.’”
Bruce Prichard was a Backstage Agent and Producer in TNA at that time. He was later promoted to being the Head Writer and Senior Vice President of Programming & Talent Relations.
