Former WCW, WWE and TNA writer Vince Russo, was a recent guest on Fightful.com’s “The List and Ya Boy” podcast.
During the show, Russo commented on several items including the topic of wrestlers delivering promos and how they sounded too scripted. Russo didn't call out which specific wrestler or wrestling company that he was referring to, but he did mention how most of the WWE wrestlers sound too much like Vine McMahon, while delivering promos.
Russo: “It’s so dumb down, I’m telling you that was a big advantage we had, Ed Ferrara and myself, we worked with the talent. The talent was a huge part of the process. I don’t think we could have done our job well if we weren’t working hand in hand with the talent. Every talent was an individual, every talent knew their character better than we did and we gave them the freedom to go out there and get over. It’s so elementary, every promo sounds just like Vince McMahon. The disappointment comes from the failure to try something new.”
