• Vince Russo Says WWE’s Juvenile Attempt To Bury Rusev & Lana Backfired

Former WWF writer Vince Russo believes WWE’s “juvenile” attempt to bury Rusev and Lana with a bad storyline backfired for them.

Below is what Russo posted on Twitter:

“Many years ago, @StephMcMahon told @TheBigVitoBrand that he was going to be wearing a dress on TV. Why? Simply because he was MY FRIEND and they wanted to embarrass him. Unfortunately, Vito being a PRO, got it over so their childish game backfired.

Fast-forward many years later. @WWE brass didn’t like the way that @RusevBUL & @LanaWWE were presenting themselves on Social Media as a couple. So-again-in their juvenile ways they attempt to embarrass the two through a storyline on TV. What happened?

@RusevBUL & @LanaWWE PURPOSELY playing the angle over the top-got them BOTH over. Lesson learned-@VinceMcMahon @HeymanHustle @bruceprichard if u want to get people over in 2020-attempt to bury them-they will simply OUT-WORK you because they know the game & are smarter.”
