Last week, Vince Russo shut down his Facebook blog. There were rumors that the blog was shut down due to influences from inside of the TNA locker room and from the TNA management. In a post today, Vince Russo explains why he shut down his blog, mainly citing the negative comments coming from the audience. The entire blog is available below for your reading pleasure.
As you may have figured out by now, a few weeks ago I injected a lethal dose of roach killer into my facebook page. Before I go forward, I just want to thank Marty 2 Hotty for all the hard work and dedication he put into it. At the end of the day it just came down to not being the best thing for me at this time.
Killing Facebook had nothing to do with criticism–nothing at all–but it had everything to do with negativity. At this point in my life, turning 49 tomorrow, there is just no place for ugliness in my life. I want to enjoy life, I want to look forward to what’s coming tomorrow, I want to work at being a better person, I want to work at making other people better, I want to work on relationships, I want to concentrate on making my working environment the most positive I possibly can for everybody.
I want to spend more time with my family, half of who are about to leave the nest for good. I want to work at loving my wife more, I want to work on being a better parent, husband and son. I want to spend more time in the mountains, I want to just sit for a while and pet Yogi, I want to take the time to talk to those who have supported me for so many years–I owe them everything. I want to get to know Hulk better–I want to learn from Eric Bischoff–I want to be there for Dixie–I want to have a phone conversation with the Disco Inferno. I want to find a minister here in Colorado that I can relate to, I want to rest, I want to lose weight and pay better attention to my health, I want to listen to Lady Ga-Ga, I want to make my father laugh, I want to rehash Honeymooner lines with Taz. I want to teach Matt, I want to be a friend to Terry Taylor.
These are the things that I want to do.
What I don’t want to do is be bogged down in everybody else’s negativity. I don’t want to explain myself for things that happened 10 years ago. I don’t want to defend myself over things that mean absolutely NOTHING in the big scheme of things. I don’t want to talk about David Arquette, and I could care less how cage matches end–these things are not important to me.
What is important is working at making myself a better person, every, single day. What interests me is making this a better world. These are the same things that should be important to you.
I was taken back last night when Conan said his goodbyes to NBC. Conan had two roads he could have traveled, the ugly road, or the high road. With his head held high he proudly walked down the high road and made himself a better man for it. That’s what we all need to do. Life is too short to just spout ugliness–there is no reason for it.
That’s it. That’s all I have to say.
My book comes out on February 1, and I hope you all get a chance to read it. Whereas there is definitely more wrestling in this book–what this book is really about is life, relationships, love, struggles, and things we all face in our everyday life. To those who have supported me–it is my gift back to you. I hope through my words you will really be able to understand what’s “REALLY” important in whatever stage in your life you are in.
