Wrestling personality Vince Russo has said Tony Schiavone was the one who suggested actor David Arquette infamously winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.
Speaking on his podcast 'The Brand' Russo described himself as a huge fan of Schiavone, and said how Tony pitched him the idea after a meeting.
"Now, you know me and my reputation. I was the swerve master, so anytime I could swerve you and give you surprises I did it. When he said that to me I stopped dead in my tracks because here is the swerve."
Russo, who is also a former WCW Champion, also said how he called people into a meeting after the idea was suggested, and no-one opposed it.
"One-hundred percent on board. I think Jimmy Hart was there too. Not one person said that we couldn’t do it, or that it was a ridiculous idea. Not one person did that."
Arquette won the title on WCW Thunder in 2000, after a collaboration between the company and his film Ready To Rumble.
The Scream actor has said how he did not want the title, and knew how fans would react, but accepted in an effort to help WCW's fledging views.
Arquette announced his return to wrestling, earlier this year.
The decision to put the title on Arquette is often cited as the final nail in the coffin for the company, which was bought by Vince McMahon in March 2001.
