Vince Russo’s tenure in TNA isn’t exactly well remembered with his fondness for crazy matches and storylines. But it does give him experience with the company and in his latest blog posting, he shares his thoughts on TNA’s future with their deal with Destination America ending and how it came about.
“This column, however, isn’t about the “current” state of TNA, quite frankly because there is zero interest on my part to discuss something that is just not worth discussing. Having worked there, the way the entire Jeff Jarrett Global Wrestling Force take-over has been handled is perhaps the single-worst missed opportunity I have ever witnessed in the history of the business. While there is so much “reality meat” on the bone concerning the Jarrett-Carter history, how those involved in creative could just fail back on a typical “rasslin’” storyline is an absolute sham and embarrassment. No, a lack of creative talent is really what it is.
No, this column is about what TNA Management—Dixie Carter & John Gaburick—may indeed know about the future of their company, that they are not sharing with those that are depending on its survival to make a living. After the holiday, we are merely three weeks from the company’s possible extinction—and, those who have made TNA for well over the last decade—are standing in the dark with not even a pen light.
To me—that sucks. That sucks because I have survived the deceit, and dishonesty of TNA owner Dixie Carter over the years, and trust me, those situations have left deep scars that to this day have not properly healed. The hiring of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff behind my back while Matt Conway and myself were doing everything possible to try to get the company on track by utilizing their young stars to their fullest potential was one thing, but asking me to lie to others about my employment there was a totally different story. But, that simply is how Dixie has done business over the years, and this is what you call—when your past mistakes catch up with you, as a failure to try and correct them.”
You can read the full post here and note how little Russo takes responsibility for how his own work in TNA just helped push them down along with everything else. But then, it wouldn’t be Vinny Ru without his unique mindset.
