In the 1990s Vince Russo (a.k.a. Vic Venom or Vicious Vincent) was one of the most successful pro-wrestling writers in the business, dealing in story-lines about "sex, violence, drugs, nudity, homosexuality, transvestites, men beating women, the killing of household pets, castration, the unnatural love between mother and her son, demonic worship, demonic sacrifice, blasphemy, degrading the cross." He was, he says, "the Anti-Christ of sports entertainment." But now that he's found God -- and Dubya's favorite book of devotionals, Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for His Highest -- Russo really regrets such story-lines, like the crucifixion angle of a fight between Steve Austin and the Undertaker. But he's trying to make up for it with his new Christian website, Vince Russo's Forgiven, and an upcoming book that he's promoting to Christian bookstores.
Not to sound to much like an ass, but this has been covered here a couple times I believe. But since your new I guess that doesn't mean anything since you couldn't know. But I (maybe that only one) have been a Russo fan for a long while. I don't think he gets some credit he deserves. But has he made his fair share a mistakes, oh hell yes. But I believe him when he says he found God so more power to him.
I keep hearing a TON about this guy. JR mentioned him in today's conference call. When passing along the news of the day to a friend, he asked me something interesting.
"Is he related to Cowboy Bob?"
Does anyone know the answer to this?
