In the late 1990s, during the most successful years of the Attitude Era, Vince Russo was the head writer for WWF. However, since leaving the company, the well-known creative has been very critical of the product WWE.
Yesterday, in a video uploaded to his youtube channel With excerpts from his podcast, Russo revealed that he has worked as consultant for the USA Network television channel (where RAW is broadcast) for the past two years, and has given you some advice regarding the WWE show. These were his statements:
“I’ve been keeping a little secret for over two years that I want to share on this show. I want to make it clear,” Russo said. “I haven’t said this publicly, but since March, since before WrestleMania, bro. Right before WrestleMania in 2020, until this last Mania in 2022. So basically, bro, for two years, I’ve been being consulted by USA Network“.
“I contacted the VP of USA Network, who was watching RAW over the top. He knew who I was and he called me right back. And we had a long, long discussion. So while the VP was looking at RAW, the first thing he did was go straight to Vince McMahon…”
“During two years, two years, I have been consulted weekly by USA Network. For two years I have heard the numbers, the audiences and the investments. Don’t tell me I have no f**king idea what I’m talking about.
When it comes to the numbers, the channels, it doesn’t matter if it’s 1999 or 2020. I know what they go by. I know what they’re looking for. I know what is acceptable and unacceptable, because I have communicated with them for two years in a row.”
Of course, Russo collaborating with USA Network does not mean that it had any effect on WWE programming. The writer himself has been very clear when criticizing WWE in the years in which he would have worked with the USA Network.
At the moment, it is not known exactly what did you advise to the channel in relation to RAW, although it is likely that the former WCW world champion will give more details on the matter soon on his channel.
Remember that the next WWE PPV is WWE Clash at The Castle and in Solowrestling you will be up to date with all the related news.
