In fact, some fans think what Punk did was so cool that they started calling wrestlers with their real names on wrestlingforums. Phil, Dwayne, Oscar and Paul but boo hoo Goldberg refuses to follow the script, the business is dead

Here is another important moment from this era. Vince Russo cuts Ric Flair's hair. Is that a water bottle at 7:34?
It was a one time thing between Phil & Paul. Done in a era where all of it is known and much more common. Doing it nearly 13 years ago was unheard of. Not to mention the way they played it out was in such a bad fashion. "Refused to follow the script" How does that help your product when you're openly revealing that it's scripted AS AN ANGLE? You can't compare the two. Only you choose to b/c you feel the need to defend Russo at every turn even though a lot of what he has done is over the top. It's been proven Russo can be fine with his "outside of the box" thinking with a filter. Without it he seems to go overboard.

I'll give you this though, you're right when you say that some TNA fans did like the product more with Russo in charge than they did when Hogan stepped in. Of course that's personal preference and could spark a debate (not in here though) about how when Russo was re-hired back in September of 2006, that's when TNA's awesome streak started to dwindle. And it did. In a matter of weeks TNA was already back to being ultra-gimmicky.

For the third time (fuck me people just have fun here) lets get back to the FUN...

Jarrett vs Sting for the WCW World Championship? If I don't get 5 run-ins, I'm going to be in a sour mood.

KISS Demon vs. The Maestro. Biggest waste of money on a gimmick wrestler ever.

lmao @ Torborg before fully going into the Demon gimmick. Looks like the demonic version of Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz.

That was a trainwreck. Especially having to main event with it.

Last I've heard of Torborg is that he married Asya. And did an interview with the lead singer of Alter Bridge, that's about it.

But he did THE SAME THING in the WWE, for God's sake!

Sorry, but you can't blame Russo for doing new things. And the "Filter" is a myth. It's just something that the WWE like to say.

Russo is Russo, with or without filter. It's the SAME thing.

Russo never had a filter... McMahon would overlook things and tweak the smallest details to make it that much better but he'd never change anything outside of the box that he was given by Russo 'n Ed.

WCW 2000 was pretty much Attitude 2.0 but with added politics backstage.

Oh, TNA got it's highest ratings with Russo booking. Again, some things were stopped short because too many people had their fingers in the pies... Dixie would pretty much let the soddin' merch guys change stuff in the booking meetings which led to a miss-match of things.

It's funny when the same statements get thrown over and over again. It's been brought up and said already in this thread. We all know Russo pumped out wacky things during the attitude era too. Only difference is those worked at the time.

Russo fans debunk the filter myth. Then when it comes to Russo without McMahon behind him - success didn't come through. Hearsay is one thing, but fact is another.

Don't care about ratings. Never have, never will. TNA's product declined when Russo was put back in charge. Now I'm not blaming him 100% for it. Only, that's just the way it went.

Fuck me, Russo marks. Stop ruining this thread already. Nobody cares. He has a stigma. So what. Now lets finally recede from the nonsense and get back to what made this thread kicking for about 10+ pages before this stuff. The hilarious and awesome moments of latter WCW.
