I know Russo has been dabbling with religion, but I also remember him wanting to do a religious angle before...

Yet I tend to believe this may be on of those worked/shoots where he takes an aspect of his real life and turns it into an angle...

Russo has done several radio appearances talking about giving his life to Jesus. It is not fake as far as I can tell, although I suppose with "Vic Venom" anything is possible.

Time to get the Christian Wrestling Federation back off the ground!

Oh yes my friend. Check out Click Here (christianwrestling.com)

The only ones I recognize off the bat are Brian Knobbs and AJ Styles, but I thought that Dibiase had something to do with the company, or he used to (could be wrong though).

Pardon me for my lack of knowledge, but where would this leave Russo's TNA career? for that matter, what has his character been on the show?

I dont think this is a swerve. I think Vince truly is at peace with the world.

But Russo says he's given his notice to TNA and he's gone after the PPV.

I dont think this is a swerve, but if it is he deserves an Oscar.

His writing input has been very minimal. He's essentially the odd man out, and is more just an on-screen character. He's currently a babyface as TNA's Director of Authority, but has ongoing issues with Dusty Rhodes. He's not really doing too badly under that character, either.

Aren't HBK, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and Steve Borden involved in a wrestling/religion malarkey? Is this the same thing?

Everytime I read stories like this, I can't help but think of the episode of Family Guy when Peter grabs a Bible and says "Look at me ... I'm a Christian ..."

    The merchandise.

    Lord, protect me from your followers.


Right, because they're not allowed to make money IN ORDER TO FURTHER THEIR MINISTRY! It's a fact of life that you need money to continue your endeavors, especially on a scale like this. It's not like money is the number one mission for MOST of these people (remember it's the love of money that is the root of all evil according to "The Book").

I'm sure rational people can understand why it is a necessity to keep the cash flow coming.

And for Mayhem, I know that you were making a joke, but isn't it better to know up front what you are dealing with? It's like the respect I have for Michael Moore and George W. Bush--you know what their platforms are. I would rather have a Christian Wrestling Federation than a show where you aren't sure of the stand, and then they almost forcibly keep you after the show and sneak the Bible message in there.

I don't know, guys.. I find it a little funny that the webmasters name is "Wilson De Jesus". And this quote from the site really makes me wonder:

"I was truly reborn. I turned my life over to God and finally handed my maker the title as the one, and only, true champion of the world."

Come on, now.
