WWE needs Vince Russo

I think WWE should bring back Vince Russo full time to write for RAW and Smackdown. I haven't seen any changes on either show despite having Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman on the payroll. They need to go in a different direction. These wrestlers could really do something if they had a great mind like Vince Russo to work with them.

Indeed,

1:37

Only Russo, Ed Ferrara and Chris Kreski understand the modern(late 90's -present) audience.

Russo won't admit it but he had several cases of burnout. He did claim that SmackDown was one of the reasons why he left WWF back then, even though WCW also had 2 shows. Russo's ideas were once brilliant, but unfortunately lots of his ideas in TNA were d.o.a.

HHH was completely dismissive of Russo claiming he didn't know how to end storylines even though HHH doesn't either, and I don't think Steph likes him either. Having Russo back as a full-time writer wouldn't work due to the stress he claims caused him to leave knowing WWE has grown since then.

Even after all that, I could see him back in WWE one day as a creative consultant but not anytime soon.

I know some people will say he came up with things that didn't make sense. Ole Anderson, Kevin Sullivan and Dusty Rhodes also did the same thing. I'm not going to even get started on the Black Scorpion.

Russo only knew how to do one thing, and the era where he flourished is gone.

Triple H claimed Russo didn't know how to end the Stephanie Mcmahon/Test angle and that he wrote the "amnesia" angle to buy time.

This was proven false as the amnesia angle happened in UK where Russo wasn't in fact Russo was in Atlanta signing with WCW.

Russo has stated that he did have the ending of that story, Test was gonna stand Stephanie up at the wedding.

So if Russo didn't leave, Triple H wouldn't have ruined the WWF/WWE and Chyna life

I remember reading about the Test and Triple H storyline. Vince Russo said he did have a conclusion. He also tried to turn Val Venis into a main eventer.

Re: WWE needs Vince Russo

No, they really donít. They just need fo Vince McMahon to die. Sounds harsh, but into it occurs WWE will still continue to suffer. Itís obvious reports that he rips up scripts hours before the show that he is still in full control of everything.

It seemed like for a few weeks, things were turning a corner, but things are actually worse than ever. There are no credible heels. No one has momentum. KO went from an incredibly over bad ass type face, to whatever the Hell he is now. They stumbled upon something potentially great with Buddy Murphy, but it wasnít by design, so theyíll just squander that Iím sure.

The entire Reigns storyline has turned into a disaster. Rollins who was once easily one of their fanbaseís most beloved faces is getting more and more mixed reactions by the week. The donít utilize their talented tag team division at all.

Their roster blows AEWís and NXTís away. Yet, NXT consistently puts on a better show, and Iím sure AEW will, too.

Re: WWE needs Vince Russo

This thread again.

Russo is a burnout and he's written more bad shit than good at this point. The 90's are over.

Vince Russo created the group Too Cool. I saw these guys at a live show and they are so entertaining. Scotty 2 Hotty gets the fans going crazy for The Worm. Rikishi's Stinkface is legendary and should have a list of its own.
