Shares 0

Bill Behrens is now representing former TNA Impact Wrestling creative team writer Vince Russo. He's looking to host seminars now that he is gone from TNA. The following release was sent out today by Behrens:


Everything you wanted to know about writing a professional wrestling show but were afraid to ask.


During the years of 1995-2012, Vince Russo was one of the most controversial figures in the history of sports entertainment/professional wrestling, while serving as the head writer of all three major wrestling companies, WWE, WCW and TNA.

During that tenure, Russo wrote over a thousand televised wrestling shows--which achieved some of the highest ratings of all time-- while also having a hand in helping create some of the biggest stars in the history of the business. From Stone Cold Steve Austin to “The Rock”, Russo has written for just about anybody who’s anybody in the world of sports entertainment/pro wrestling.

Whether it was in front of the camera, or behind the scenes, Russo has played an influential part in helping to bring the drama of the squared circle to the forefront of American pop culture.

Now, in this limited engagement and for the first time ever, Russo is going to bring the “behind the curtain” aspect of his job, into the spotlight, by sharing his craft and experience with wrestling fans around the world. In his ground-breaking seminar entitled, “Baby Faces, Blade Jobs, and Booking, “, Russo is going to share first hand, what it takes to be a successful writer in the world of sports entertainment/professional wrestling.

Just some of the topics Russo will be covering in this no-holds-barred presentation:

· Where to get your start in writing for a professional wrestling organization.
· How to use the experience you’ve built to get in the door of one of the major companies
· How to create larger-than-life personas and personalities
· Writing effective dialogue for specific characters
· How to format a wrestling show
· How to generate new ideas 52-weeks out of the year
· How to present and sell your idea to a talent
· How to create a successful working environment between talent and writer
· Dealing with egos
· Overcoming writer’s block
· Avoiding the pitfalls of politics
· How to generate ratings
· The difference between “writing” a show and “booking” a show

Baby Faces, Blade Jobs and Booking; nothing will no longer be sacred!!

  • Patrick_Peralta

    Russo's seminars should be called "Don't let this happen to you" and use Russo's history on what NOT to do in Wrestling.

  • John Brindle

    Surely this is some kind of a joke?

  • Jaryd

    **Cornette face**

  • bejealous

    LOL I hope noone wastes their money. Anyone can come up with the idea to put an object on a pole and ace wrestlers fight to get it

  • Brian

    This has gotta be a joke. Whats next, The Great Khali on “How to sell a move”?

    • Ace

      Or the Boogeyman on "How to be taken seriously"

    • Mike L

      Triple H on how to bury opponents and marry "The Prize Ham at the Fair." Sorry, I couldn't resist.

  • Steveo_sm

    A dummies guide on how to put a major pro wrestling company out of business!

  • Nick

    When and where is this?

  • BollyMexCPhT

    How to makes "X" on a pole matches.

  • BollyMexCPhT

    How to successfully take down a wrestling from the inside.

  • Johnny Hayder

    It’s not even April 1st yet and WNW is already playing the April Fools prank on us! Are yOu serious bro?

  • Frenchfry

    it would definitely be interesting to attend

  • Mike

    He missed the segment on how to recover your career and your dignity when you're exposed as not being quite as good as you always thought you were. Then again, I think he's still working on that.

  • Stoney

    Russo teaching people how to be a successful writer in the wrestling business is like Paris Hilton learning how to read

  • iamjohnnymcb

    so im guessing its a comedy show?

  • Guy Landau

    O_O Kill it before it breeds!

  • Karl

    “Self Sedtruction of A Major Company 101”

  • Justin

    As soon as I read the title of this article I cracked up laughing.

  • Hunter

    I thought they title was a joke headline at first. I would attend just for the laughs

  • MPXTheChoice

    From one of my friends: This would be like Robert Pattinson holding a seminar on How to Be a Vampire.

  • JamieSNZ

    Who is going to teach Russo how to be a "Successful Writer in the Pro Wrestling Business" though?

  • kbunyon

    I think this would be a blast to attend! Not saying I would pay anything to do so, but it's got to be a scream! The only problem I see is that I would be snickering and mocking him through the whole thing.

    To give him the benefit of the doubt, he does know how things happen as a pro wrestling writer, it's just that he doesn't know how to be a good, or respected pro wrestling writer. I'm always floored at his ego and how he manages to rewrite history to make himself look like the creator of so many things he did not create.
