• Vince Russo Recalls Bruce Prichard & Jim Cornette Wanting Triple H To Be Fired From WWF
During a recent appearance on 411 Wrestling Interview podcast, former WWF writer Vince Russo recalled the “Curtain Call” and Triple H getting punished for it.
Below is what Russo said about this incident:
“Well, here’s what happened. Curtain Call happened at Madison Square Garden. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall went to WCW. Shawn Michaels was the champion, so they weren’t going to touch him. So, who was going to be the whipping boy? Triple H.
They were gonna bury Triple H, and they were gonna torture Triple H. And they were gonna humiliate Triple H. And they were going to make his life miserable for doing that one thing. And because I was there, I was able to say, ‘What are you guys, Children? First of all, nobody believes wrestling is real. So, you’re getting all upset with this freaking Curtain Call’.
I mean, at the time, Bruce Prichard and Jim Cornette wanted Triple H fired. They wanted him fired. That’s how pi$$ed off they were.”
