Vince Russo Expresses Frustration With TNA!


Recommended Posts

source: PWTorch Newsletter


Vince Russo was overheard making a comment after watching a recent episode of iMPACT! on Spike TV. This source stated Russo said something to the effect of that he "couldn't tell you one thing he just saw" after viewing an episode.


Russo said this in front of members of TNA's management and other staff, which included TNA President Dixie Carter, Jeff Jarrett and Spike TV network executives. The word making the rounds right now is that Russo is just as frustrated as anyone with the number of things he is being told to fit into each episode of iMPACT! every week. There is reportedly pressure to put everyone on TV every week because many talent get paid per TV appearance. Rather than adjust the current pay schedule, TNA management has decided to require that everyone gets a short segment every week.


It is also being said that TNA management wants Vince Russo to relocate to Nashville from Atlanta, where he currently resides. Based on what is known right now, Russo is said to be hesitant about making the move because of the lack of long-term assurances that comes with the role of a booker in the wrestling business. So, while there are no indications that TNA wants to remove Russo from his role right now with the company, he understands there is no long-term guarantee and making this move would be a big change for his family. We will continue to follow this situation as it develops.

That's funny. On JR's website he wrote that Russo's biggest flaw was that he always tried to cram too much stuff into too little time. The fans had too little attention and could not follow everything that was going on and it was confusing.


So, Russo is complaining about himself pretty much.

Actually back in the WWE "Attitude" era...Russo was the most talented and best booker/writer that was around. I know he eventually got a big ego and ran to WCW and basically tore his own career down but this is the man that helped take wrestling to that NEXT level that it is still at today.


I never had a problem following the WWE back then and all the storylines were of interest to me...even the low-to-mid-carder ones.


I totally understand what Russo is saying,especially because TNA Impact is like what?An hour long?As opposed to 2 hours that RAW ran on?One hour is not enough to stuff everyone in..literally it is 45-50 min. because of the commercials.


TNA has a LONG way to go before they're on top and they have to implement a lot of changes to insure that.Most of their wrestlers are NOT on long-term contract and can leave at the drop of a hat.
