On a recent episode of The RD & Blade Show, former WWE and TNA Head Writer Vince Russo fully denied that he was involved with iMPACT Wrestling in any capacity. This directly contradicts “newz” reports from the last few weeks propagated by some of the widely read dirt sheets who routinely make up fake stories based on plausibly conjectured half-truths. Here are Russo’s words where he rejects the lies regarding his status:
First of all, just for the record, let me make one thing perfectly straight: my contract with TNA was over in February 2012. I do not have a contract with TNA that expires in three months. Where that information came from, I have absolutely no idea. I have not been under contract with any wrestling company since February 2012. So everything you read about ‘Oh, he’s with TNA and there’s still three months left on his contract’…. Who pulled that out of their backside and why, I have no idea. I am under contract with nobody.
If I’m working as a consultant for TNA, if I’m working as a consultant for WWE, if I’m working as a consultant with Jeff Jarrett, you know what? I choose not to comment on that, because I’m just as fascinated to sit back in my house here in the mountains, in beautiful Colorado, and just see how two years and three months I have been out of the business, but yet every day I still seem to be the topic of conversation. And I am totally, totally entertained by that. So if I say I’m consulting for Jeff or if I’m consulting for Vince or if I’m consulting for TNA, it would take the enjoyment out of that for me. My number one priority right now is pyroandballyhoo.com, that is where I’m going to be spending the majority of my time.
As far as these wrestling experts that claim I still have three months left on a contract that expired two years ago, they can talk about it all they want, they can speculate, they can talk to unknown sources, whatever rocks their socks. I just kind of enjoy sitting back and reading over it and knowing that I am still loved, not even being in the picture over the last two-and-a-half years. It just fascinates me how people come up with that stuff. The subscribers to the sites read it, so now they believe it. I don’t know why anybody would be under the notion that I’m still under a contract when I left the company two-and-a-half years ago. It’s just ridiculous.
Remember, folks – check your sources! If you frequent a website that reported the lie that Russo was working with TNA, then I highly recommend that you stop reading that website immediately.
