Vince Russo Part 2 Shoot Interview
It’s time to put Vince Russo under the microscope in his all new 2012 EXCLUSIVE RF VIDEO shoot interview!!!
This was RF VIDEO’s best kept secret and believe me this interview gets heated!!!!
There might never be a man as controversial as Vince Russo in the world of pro wrestling. Some fans hate him so much that they chant his name to be fired at live TV tapings and PPV’s. This very same person was the head writer for TNA for over 5 years. He was responsible for most of the major story lines that appeared on TNA TV and most TNA PPV’S as well. This all came to a screaming hault in March of 2012 as Vince Russo left the company for many various reasons that he will discuss for the very first time ever, with the king of shoot interviews, RF VIDEO.
It was time to put Vince Russo under the microscope for the first time since he parted ways with TNA and find out what was really going thru his mind when he was in creative charge of TNA!!!
As soon as RF VIDEO heard that Russo quit TNA we quickly contacted him and RF VIDEO flew him to a secret location in March for a one on one interview. We were told we were not allowed to release the interview until June because he had a commitment to do a live youshoot, so out of respect we had to hold off on announcing this interview until today!!!!
I can personally tell you that this interview will give you a whole new look at what goes on in the mind of Vince Russo. Many fans disagree with his style of writing but now for the first time, Russo lets everyone know why he does things the way he does and comes out swinging!!!
Did Russo even care what the fans chanted? You will find all of this out and more…What happened when he had to work with Hogan and Eric Bischoff again?What went on behind the scenes politically with them? What was it like to work with Dixie Carter and is she being manipulated? What was his real life relationship with Jeff Jarrett like? Who’s side was he on when the entire Kurt Angle and Jarrett drama unfolded?
Again we ask Vince about his writing philosophy for story lines and we really pick his brain on why he does things the way he does. Vince for the first time ever addresses the fans directly and talks all about all of his criticism and I can tell you that this part of the interview gets intense!!! You will hear first hand on how he writes for TV and why he is all about ratings.
What about the problems backstage with Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy with drug issues??? We had to bring his name up after all this was a shoot interview, you will hear for the first time ever since Jim Cornette verbally attacked Russo his thoughts on the entire situation involving Jim Cornette and himself. What really happened in TNA when Cornette left the company?
What guys in TNA were going to get over and why some guys never got a bigger break when he was there…..What was it like working with Ric Flair and all of his issues…Thoughts on Paul Heyman coming into TNA and was there a conversation between the two as Paul was about to strike a deal with TNA to take over….wait until you hear this one…What really happened with the Bobby Rude finish in Philly for the PPV?
This interview was a solid 3 hour shoot interview and we asked everything you could imagine under the sun to Vince Russo and we talked a lot about his relationship with the WWE and the time that he spent there. Never before has Vince opened up like he did during this 3 hour interview. The subjects that we discussed about TNA were vital to understand his mentality.. Trust me there was nothing left out of this interview and you will be very entertained by his newest shoot interview with us.
