To me, he is a genius! You can point out flaws of his, but no body is perfect...not even VINCE MCMAHON. Would you guys be happy if you were watching Doink [8th Generation], Crush,etc. You know all the guys from 93-96, because without Russo you would probably still be watching the same product from 95. Wrestling sure as hell wouldn't be as popular, with out him [and McMahon working on The Attitude Era]. Anyways, heres some cool videos:
 
The Pope/Fired Angle that WWE copied: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDUFkJejm6I
Shoots on Goldberg on Nitro: http://youtube.com/watch?v=he8k14BlVJI
 more comming soon!

Vince Russo is a good booker as long as he has someone competent to filter his booking and take out the bad ideas he has. That's what he had in WWE with Vince McMahon. That's what he could've had in WCW with Eric Bischoff before Turner got rid of Bischoff. And that's what he doesn't have in TNA right now and it's killing the product.

I agree, but I don't think he's killing TNA. He just needs a filter for his few bad ideas. I personally believe that Dutch Mantell is the companies creative cancer. But since Jarrett is close to Dutch, he won't be fired. If Bischoff could have had the chance to filter Vince, WCW might even still be around today.

Is he a wrestler all of a sudden? Vince Russo does get a lot of bad press that he doesn't deserve. Just like any other booker, he's made some horrible decisions. But lets not forget the good ones either. He changed the face of wrestling and if it wasn't for him, we might still be watching stupid characters like Warlord on our tv screen.
 
He gets bothered for TNA stuff now and yet when it comes out who's behind a shit storyline (like Sharkboy 3:16), it's Dutch Mantel and not Russo. He's been good on screen as well. Like in the early days of TNA with S.E.X and as the heel manager of Styles.

I feel Vince Russo has done some good ideas and HELPED WWE in the attitude era but to give him sole credit for that would be wrong as it was a bunch of things comming together that made WWE great back then.
 
Maybe Vince Russo is given more bad credit than what he deserves but you cannot ignore some of his more questionable ideas (like Pinata on a Pole, the S.E.X. team in TNA, booking himself to win the WCW title, booking David Arequette to win the WCW title).
 
In the end I agree with many others that bad things happen when Russo doesn't have anyone to make sure he stays focused. So VR can do great things when someone's there to make sure he keeps his eye on the ball.

i dont see russo as anything but a guy, with some good ideas and some terrible ideas. on the plus side he can come out with some creative stuff and he did push for more adult themes in wrestling when we were all sick of the 'doink the clown stuff' but on the negative side, he doesnt know enough about wrestling and i agree with corino on the fact that i think russo just rapes the wrestling business cuz he doesnt know enough about it to know what works properly and what doesnt. making david arquette wcw champion, yeah it got newspaper attention but the next day then papers were just used for bags of chips - so in my opinion he sold out just to make a quick buck.
 
i aint with that shit.
 
to me, 2 men who have changed wrestling FOR THE GOOD - Gabe Sapolski & Mitsuharu Misawa, and no one can tell me differently.

why does someone have to know wrestling in order to write it??? nobody writing now has any wrestling talent , watch some old freebird videos , yeah ps hayes was  funny and charasmatic , but lets face it, him and dusty rhodes dont know the first thing about wrestling , i watched a match between arn anderson and dusty , arn had to work his ass off to make it look like dusty knew how to wrestle , anybody who thinks dusty was a great ring performer has selective memory , the fat fuck lays around for 20 minutes then somehow wins the match , all russo needs to do is make sure the end of a match pushes the storyline in the right direction , everything eles should be on the wrestlers and the consultants "hey do this move" be sure to shake hands get real emotion" ,

For once I agree with DocP, on something. Vince Russo has a lot of talent. I wish he was still writing for the WWE. I think he'd shoot down a lot of terrible storylines and bad gimmicks and replace them with good ones.

I also agree with him that being a good wrestler doesn't mean you're a good booker. As Mick Foley said Rick Flair was one greatest wrestlers, but one of the worst bookers of all time.
