I was thinking about this the other day. Remeber when it was announced on WWE.com that Russo was back. It was a shock to everyone, then all of a sudden it was reported that Russo was gone again. This didnt make sense to me seeing as how WWE didnt even use his writing for one show. The story was that he wanted an angle involving Bischoff and McMahon didnt agree and released him. However Bischoff appeared on TV shortly after this story broke. Coincidence? Heres my theory...


The news of Russo signing caused a lot of controversy. Mostly negative. Seeing this McMahon put out the fake news that Russo was no longer involved in the writing. However Russo was still writing the shows, thus bringing in Bishcoff. If you also remeber at this period a lot of very Russo-esque storylines were going on. The whole Kane/Katie Vick murder angle on RAW and the Dawn/Al storyline on Smackdown. Who else but Russo would come up with something like HhH having sex with a dead corpse. This angle had Russo written all over it. I think Russo wrote these storylines for Vince before he was originaly reported fired or he was working with WWE until these storylines bombed and was then truly released. If anyone can provide the dates these storylines went down and the date Russo arrived in NWA it would be appreciated. I honestly think Russo did a lot more in WWE then what was reported.

Actually, one of Russo's major suggestions was The Rock developing homosexual tendencies, IIRC. That went down like a lead balloon and he was shown the door pretty much the next day.

Twist, if you're serious (I got in trouble "answering" someone who really knew the answer once here), here's the very short version

He's a TV writer who was on WWF's staff during the attitude days. A lot of the stuff that got WWF past the Nitro machine in WCW is credited to him, like some of the DX stuff - he seemed to be the main creative person on the staff, reporting to VKM.

Then he, and one of his cronies, went over to WCW and worked for them during their last couple years, where did a lot of on-stage stuff as well as writing. Eventually he left, came back and left again. He was behind the Hogan/Jarrett title thing, and was big on "shoot" angles

Then he showed up in TNA and was their head writer for awhile. I guess that's over, since I am not a TNA person and I don't know what he's doing right now.

I somehow doubt the theory.

First, the suggestions he made included returning Bischoff, but there were also a bunch of other things (returning Bret Hart, forming some sort of outsiders stable that would include Hulk Hogan)... Whether they took his suggestion about Bischoff or not, we'll never know. Bisch has said he had been in talks with McMahon as far back as when the InVasion started, and it never materialized.

Second, none of the writing here really represents Russo here. It's usually easy to spot, especially with his 'Crash TV' format. You can see it on TNA whenever he's had a hand in the show. It's like Paul Heyman -- you can still tell whenever he's contributed to SmackDown (even if he's not a writer anymore).

Third, what would they have to gain by 'work' hiring and firing Russo? There's no big payoff. Most casual fans don't even remember who Vince Russo is, let alone why him suddenly appearing on TV or whatever would be important. IIRC, the whole thing was done to avoid a book he was planning to publish on McMahon. When he signed, I believe he had to kill off the book deal.

I think Russo was a very good writer once upon a time when the idea of Attitude was a relatively new one. He looked to find interesting stories for everyone on the roster, and helped McMahon to push the envelope. But once the guy started believing his press clippings a little too much, his career was damaged for good.

"The story was that he wanted an angle involving Bischoff and McMahon didnt agree and released him. However Bischoff appeared on TV shortly after this story broke."

The story, as Canadian Bulldog said, was for a second (er, fourth) invasion story with Bret Hart, Scott Steiner, etc. And then WWE signed Scott Steiner five months later? COINCIDENCE? Hmmmmmmm

"Who else but Russo would come up with something like HhH having sex with a dead corpse."

You're really not giving the big Vince enough credit.

"If you also remeber at this period a lot of very Russo-esque storylines were going on."

Just two months ago Kane was burning to death in flaming dumpsters and coming out without a scratch on him and the Big Show was being sprayed with FEESHEES. It's not too hard to write bad angles.

I thought he'd at least get a second shot on ECW, but no such luck for him. I won't miss him, though. Just wish he could have taken Vicki with him.
