Details On Who Played A Major Role In Vince Russo Deciding To Quit TNA Impact Wrestling & Who He Hopes To Take With Him To WWE

There is even more news regarding Vince Russo’s departure from TNA Impact Wrestling. I heard a lot of people wondered about the timing, especially when he was in a situation where the odds of him ever being fired were miniscule. One source told me he basically had a job for along as TNA was in business.

From what I understand, Vince’s son, Will Russo, played a major part in his decision making. As some of you may know, Will worked in production for TNA but quit when his father quit.

One of the reasons Vince Russo was attempting to regain some of his power was in the hopes he would have enough pull to get his son a bigger role in TNA, much like Eric Bischoff has been able to do with his son Garett. Vince wasn’t looking to get Will on-camera or anything like that but was hoping to have more stroke to get his son a more important position in production that offered him better job security.

My source says that while Vince figured while he had job security, due to his minimized stroke in the company, he wasn’t confident the same job security would be extended to his son. I’m told Vince is hoping he can get Will a job with the WWE Network, assuming he himself actually lands a job with his former employer.

    Keep Russo out of creative, plain and simple. Then again, with how heavy VKM's hand is on decisions being made, Russo coming back on board may not be as bad in WWE as in TNA.

      Well Russo's only classic stuff in my, and I'm sure loads others, opinion was when he had VKM as a filter.

    Given the manner in which Russo left the WWE, I don't know if they'll actually hire Russo back. I mean – they might but it would be very awkward at the very least. I certainly wouldn't. Jim Cornette actually explained how Russo's departure went down in detail one time in an interview (you can find it on youtube, It's a 4 hour interview.) I am making the assumption that his story is true because Cornette is known for being an unfailingly honest and up front. How honest? Well, in spite of the fact that (as J R has said on multiple occasions) he knows more about the business than anyone living and possibly dead, Jim Cornette's untempered honesty and shall we say "forthrightness" have alienated him from the movers and shakers in the industry and cost him more than one job. Basically, when it comes to telling it like it is, Jim Cornette is the Honey Badger of wrestling.
    Anyway, according to Cornette, despite having to filter him Russo was Vinnie Mac's golden boy (which corresponds with all the other sources I've found saying that he was basically VKM's go to guy, bff, link to the real world, protege, etc.) Right up until he called the office from Georgia to let them know he wouldn't be coming back and started working for WCW the next day.
    That's Madusa Miceli level back-stabbing right there. I seriously doubt they're going to welcome him back with open arms. Then again VKM is known for doing strange things.
