Vince Russo Says David Arquette "Was More Over Than Kevin Owens Will Ever Be"

Posted By: Kenny Williams on Aug 31, 2016

Vince Russo Says David Arquette "Was More Over Than Kevin Owens Will Ever Be"

During the most recent edition of his official podcast, Vince Russo spoke about Kevin Owens recently winning the WWE Universal Championship on Monday night's edition of Raw. While Russo stated that he didn't care about Owens winning the title, he also went on a rant about him, even going so far as to state that David Arquette, who once won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, "was more over than Kevin Owens will ever be."

Below are highlights from what Russo had to say:

Kevin Owens Becoming WWE Universal Champion

"Ok bro, I am bombarded with the Kevin Owens people. Can I just say this? Let me just say this because we are going to talk about this for a while, ok? Listen, I’m going to say this once: if you are one of these idiots who actually believe that Kevin Owens actually won a scripted, fake wrestling match on TV yesterday, let me tell you a few things: 1) Please don’t tweet me for a couple of reasons, because you’re going to tweet me, I’m going to read your tweet, and I’m going to think to myself, what kind of jacka** is this that actually thinks Kevin Owens won a match, and then I’m going to block you because I can’t wrap my head around that level of stupidity. I can’t. If you actually think Kevin Owens won a match last night, I don’t care if you’re two...I don’t care if you’re four..I don’t care if you’re 8..I don’t care if you’re freaking 80..if you actually believe the guy won something, I can’t wrap my head around that. So a couple of things. Don’t tweet me. Here’s another thing, I don’t want you to listen to this show. If you are one of these people that Kevin Owens won a match yesterday, and shoved it up my backside because he is the WWE Universal Champion, and I said this about him, and I said that about him, please don’t listen to this show. I don’t want you insulting the intelligence of my show; so please, if you are one of those people who fall into the category, and you know who you are, don’t listen to my show. If I have to sit here and tell you wrestling is a work, and nobody wins or loses their matches. If I actually have to tell you that and you are over the age of 5 years old, please, please don’t tweet me, don’t listen to this show; disassociate yourself with Vince Russo. I’m irrelevant. I am all those things you say I am, please, please don’t listen to the show. Guys, if the [San Francisco] Giants go to the playoffs this year, and they lose, I will be upset, if anybody out there honestly believes for a second that I care that Kevin Owens is the WWE Universal Champion. Do you understand that in about a month, our promotion here, Rocky Mountain Pro is going to be on national television in about a month? That is what I care about, that is where my energy is. Do you think for one F’N second I care about Kevin Owens being WWE Universal Champion? For you to think that I actually care about this, please, if you fall under one of these categories, don’t listen to this show, just go away from me."

Kevin Owens as Universal Champion from a Business Perspective

"Let me tell you what putting the belt on Kevin Owens achieves does for the WWE, and what it doesn’t achieve for the WWE as a whole. First of all, I’m not in the locker room, so I don’t know the landscape of the locker room, nor do I care. I’m not one of these idiots who is on the phone with moles everyday to find out what time Vince McMahon takes a dump. I don’t care, I don’t care what the people in the WWE are doing. It’s of no interest to me, but if you want to look at maybe some of the reasons why. Maybe what was going through the mind of the WWE, from a business perspective, we’ll look at that, but I’m also going to look at the other side of it. From a business perspective, let’s look at the four guys that were in the match. First of all, the way they look at Big Cass, Cass wasn’t ready, he has his whole career ahead of him, yada yada yada, whatever bro. If Cass isn’t read, then he shouldn’t be on the main roster number one, number two I said yesterday on the Relm Network and RussosBrand.com if they really wanted to do something with Cass they had an opportunity to do something for him last night. I’m not saying put the belt on him, I’m saying, let him go to the final two, let Triple H screw him, they could have elevated him to a whole other category, and they didn’t. Him being in that match didn’t elevate him no matter what they want to tell you. So, Cass is out, and next you look at Seth Rollins, who the list of who this guy has hurt inside the ring grows week by week really can’t reward a guy who is hurting other guys. Let’s look at Roman Reigns; as much as Vince McMahon would have loved to, you can’t reward a guy just coming off failing a Wellness Policy test so that leaves you with Kevin Owens. So now, what that does now is that it sends a message to the locker room, well you know, Rollins is hurting people, Reigns failed a drug test, guys, if you are a good soldier like a Kevin Owens, you too can become WWE Universal Champion. That is the message they are trying to send to the locker room. I get all that bro, I get it, I understand it. Here is the payoff: Kevin Owens is now the hood ornament of your company. Do you want to drive around with Kevin Owens sitting at the hood of your car? I don’t. Basically bro, at the end of the day, this is what you have to do; it’s very simple: put Kevin Owens in the John Cena role. It’s that simple. We’re going to put Kevin Owens on Good Morning America, we’re going to put Kevin Owens in commercials, we’re going to put Kevin Owens in movies, we’re going to put Kevin Owens on the Kids Choice Awards, on MTV. It’s that simple. He’s the hood ornament of your company. Would I make Kevin Owens the hood ornament of my company? No, I would not! I don’t see Kevin Owens sitting next to Kelly Ripa. I don’t see that. If you disagree with me, I don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me. But, you’re replacing John Cena is what you are doing, which is preposterous. That is absolutely freaking ridiculous. Then I hear things like; oh, 'says the guy who put the belt on David Arquette'. First of all, David Arquette was more over than Kevin Owens will ever be. Casual wrestling fans and casual wrestling viewers in general knew who David Arquette was. That’s first of all. Casual viewers have no idea who Kevin Owens is, and every time he comes out, literally they’re like, who is this guy? So, that comparison is ridiculous. Another thing I hear is; oh, says the guy who was going to put the belt on Tank Abbott. Well, I was going to put the belt on Tank Abbott because of the circumstances in the match, and oh by the way, Tank Abbott was a legitimate shoot fighter, and he knocked people out for a living and the way the story was written out made sense, so who knows, maybe he would of had the belt for a week. Also, understand that booking came from me being backed in the corner and everybody being hurt and something had to be done with the circumstances I was dealt with. Regardless, it doesn’t even matter, I look at the list this morning bro, here are guys that have never been the WWE Champion. People want to know how far wrestling has fallen. We have Dean Ambrose as one champion, and Kevin Owens as the other. You want to know how far wrestling has fallen? Razor Ramon/Scott Hall was never a WWE Champion, Jake the Snake Roberts was never a WWE Champion, Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig was never a WWE Champion, King Kong Bundy was never a WWE Champion, Rowdy Roddy Piper was never a WWE Champion. I can go on and on and on; Kevin Owens is the WWE Universal Champion, and you’re going to look me in the eye, if you call yourself a wrestling fan and understand anything about wrestling, you are going to look me in the eye and tell me that the wrestling business is not at a rock bottom, and you’re going to sit there and tell me that the wrestling business doesn’t suck? When, so many people were over, that a Roddy Piper couldn’t even be a Champion? Or a Curt Hennig couldn’t be a WWE Champion? You’re going to sit there and tell me how over wrestling is? Give me a F’N break, but for the record: I don’t give a crap if they put the belt on Heath Slater. If they put the belt on Heath Slater tomorrow, I don’t care. It’s not my company, it’s not going to affect my life. So, for you idiots that are tweeting me that actually think I actually care? Guys, please stop, because every time I get one of these tweets, I cannot fathom the person on the other end who the other person on the computer is. I cannot wrap my head around your level of stupidity, so I don’t know what you are accomplishing tweeting me that Kevin Owens is now the WWE Champion."
