I don't really care that you're gay. My problem with you before was because you called me an "uneducated fool" over a simple difference in opinion, while at the same time you had no logic or reasoning to back up your own opinions. I also thought it was funny that you acted homophobic in one tread and gay in another.

I agreed with you in this topic, because you said something that was remotely intellegnt. Also the fact that you didn't insult people who disagreed with you shows a lot of personal growth.

What the fuck is this thread? Genuis? He is a drooling retard. Vince Russo is a piece of shit booker and a racist bastard. Remember when he did that shoot interview where he said Japanese and Mexicans have no place in US wrestling and i quote - "i dont pay to watch fucking 'spics wrestle in my home country", then booked a Pinata on a pole match the next week. Rey Mysterio did shit all for 1.5 years while Russo killed WCW. He trashed the once prosperous cruiserweight division, gave himself, his best mate "Oklahoma", Arquette and Judy fucking Bagwell title reigns, signed half the NBA roster to wrestle, and hell, even Jay Leno got a win in a tag match. Russo has NEVER had any good ideas. General. E . Rection. Haha how funny.In his WWF stint Austin, Rock and Triple H would of got over no matter who was booker. To sum up - Chris Benoit quote - "What he said he brought to the table was totally different to what he delivered". Enuf said on this fucking brain dead racist bitch.

I'd like to know which storylines Russo actually wrote when he was in the WWF/E.  He gets a lot of credit for the Attitude Era stuff but a lot of people point out that without Vince McMahon to okay and nullify some of his ideas, he would have pretty much thrown out junk on screen like he did with WCW. 

I know one of my very favorite skits he ever did was the one with Hogan where he blasted him at Bash at the Beach.  That piece of footage needs to be enshrined in gold cause he was right on with everything he said to that ego blowhard asshole, Hogan.

I take not many have seen his RF Shoot? Him and Ed wrote everything that was ever seen on RAW/SD from 97-late 99. All McMahon did, was point out small detail;s and made them better. russo gives McMahon all the credit in the fucking world! Judy Bagwell NEVER had a title reign...ever. 2 NBA guys were in WCW...BEFORE RUSSO JOINED. Leno was booked in 97 or 98 I belive, got them TONS of publicity, and this also didn't happen while Russo was booking in WCW. Russo pushed some great talent in his time in WCW. Never would we have seen guys like Corp. Cajun, Booker T, KroniK [made tons of cash], skipper, Storm, Stacy Keibler, Torrie Wilson, David flair, etc. make a name for themselves. THEY ALL CREDIT RUSSO FOR THEIR WCW PUSH! Also, he says "The Pinata Match" was done, because it was just another way to do a gimmick match, which is what upper management wanted at the time. ALSO, I dare anyone to find me the interview where he says "Japanese and Mexicans have no place in US wrestling and i quote - "i dont pay to watch fucking 'spics wrestle in my home country"" PLEASE find that for me.Hmm, Rey was never pushed by Russo? Did the filthy animals do nothing in their time together? Guess not.

Ok, yeah i got carried away. Let me correct myself. Judy Bagwell WAS WCW tag champ with Rick Stiener in Nov 98, before Russo joined. Leno was at Hog Wild 98, also pre Russo. Rodman appeared in TNA in 04, but in WCW him and Malone were in 98, pre Russo. Booker was already a star after his best of 7 with Benoit in 98, Storm got over in The Impact Players tag team in ECW, Elix Skipper did NOTHING in WCW except win the Cruiserweight tag title, which only lasted about a month, and David Flair is a contender for worst wrestler of all time. The Mexicans and Japanese quote is in Russo's own autobiog "The death of WCW". And no, i hardly saw the Filthy Animals, because me, and millions of others, were watching a sparkling Russo-free WWF, while WCW was getting killed by him.

Booker T: When Russo took over, he really got pushed as a singles star to the main event. He wasn't just chillin in the TV/US title scene, or 1/2 of Harlem Heat. Ya dig? lol.

Storm: His ECW run was fantastic. Tooo bad that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about his WCW run. Russo used him very wisely, and even gave him the "serious Canadian" gimmick, which I still laugh at the dramatic head turn when someone would interrupt O CANADA. haha.

Elix: Was pushed with Team Canada very much. won cruiser weight Title too if I'm not mistaken. Was also used very well, for the time he was there.

David Flair: You can't win them all lol.

Actually, what killed WCW was the selfishness of nWo leaders. You're forgetting that WWF was also sparkling Nash-and-Hogan-free.

Oh, and since you hardly saw the Filthy Animals… that would mean you hardly saw the origination of Eddie Guerrero's trademark shtick.

I am sorry. I was so focused on all Russo's bad stuff, i didnt give him credit for the good stuff he did. That "If i can be serious for a minute" Lance Storm gimmick was totally underrated, putting the Canadian Maple Leaf on the US Title was brilliant. I forgot Skipper was in Team Canada as well, and i liked their feud with M.I.A. I also thought Jeff Jarretts push as "The Chosen One" heel champ went well. The tag teams in WCW were excellent, with 3 Count, The Perfect Event, Natural Born Thrillers, Jung Dragons, Big Vito and Reno, Kronik and Rey/Kidman putting on great matches. I suppose with all the politics with creative control, tons of wrestlers switching to WWF and Russo not having any real McMahon figure above him to sort problems out, Vince Russo didnt do THAT bad after all. He still had some suck ass ideas though.
