Hey, i'm just wondering if there's any stupider thing than David Arquette winning WCW title since some of you guys around here said that Russo has done lots of stupid things in the past. I didn't really follow WCW from back then so i'm not familiar with his stuff. Just suggest me some, they might be good for a laugh.

  • Booking 9 World title changes in a 6 week period - 7 on free television.
  • Turning ultra popular babyface Bill Goldberg heel.
  • Hulk Hogan/Bash at the Beach 2000 debacle
  • All the worked shoots that same summer which confused nearly everybody
  • Changing effective heel Mike Awesome into a comedy act.
  • Numerous crap gimmick matches (Kennel from Hell,Human Torch,Graveyard,Viagra on a Pole,Judy Bagwell on a pole,Pinatta on a Pole,Last Rites,Feast or Fired etc)

Russo sure loves his ...on a pole matches.

Did Russo book Kaientai to choppy choppy Val Venis' pee pee?

Vince Russo is like an air conditioner. Unless he has a filter installed dont fucking bother.
REPPED

I agree... he has decent ideas, but can't put them together well.

As far as silliest thing... Arquete, Leno are the first things that come to mind. Plus that stupid work/shoot with him and Jarrett and Hogan... Jarrett couldn't and still can't sell anything like that well enough to make it seem real.

Ric Flair gets buried alive in the middle of a desert. He's brought back a few weeks later and the angle is never mentioned again.

Get blamed for every bad thing that a company has ever done while being left out of anything good they've done. I mean, look at that whole Katie Vick storyline and this terrible Taker/Kane story. Clearly Russo was the problem. Am I IWCing right, guys?

The "Rap is Crap" angle, Master P and his goons being on Nitro regularly (I thought it was cool at first cuz I like rap but it was horrible and felt out of place), turning Goldberg heel which didn't really work and many more. Most of them were in WCW.

Were all the shoots on Nitro during Russos reign worked? Like the one with Hogan where Jarrett laid down for him and Hogan walked out after he won?

I know the Goldberg ones were fake because they were so stupid. And that Seven one lol!

The Electric Cage Match from Lockdown 2007 where the lights would flicker and a thunder sound would play. To make it even better, it wasn't in the Impact Zone and people started chanting "Fire Russo".

Viagra on a pole is definitely the worst.

"__________ on a Pole" Match. Fill in the blank with whatever the hell you want... he probably did it.

Also, not sure about "silliest", but one of the "worst" moments he had was the "Oklahoma" character portrayed by Ed Ferrara on Nitro - the parody of Jim Ross and his Bell's Palsy.
