Sean Waltman believes Impact Wrestling will get screwed by AAA, comments on the passing of Jan Ross

Former WWE/WCW/Impact Wrestling creative writer Vince Russo recently appeared on Sean Waltman’s “X-Pac 12360” podcast. Thanks to AfterBuzz TV for sending us the following highlights:

Waltman on Impact and AAA deal:

“I don’t know why anyone at Impact that dealt with AAA before thinks that AAA is any different now. That’s all I have to say about that. They’re (Impact) going to end up getting screwed… AAA is going to end up trying to screw them. I guarantee you. Guarantee it.”

Waltman’s feelings on Jan Ross situation:

“I found this out while we were on the air this morning(Maria Menounos’s Conversations with Maria SiriusXM) kinda lost it… I love Jim Ross. We love Jim Ross. We as… the world of wrestling Pro Wrestling. We love you, Jim Ross… Any woman that can be married…(Emotional) Sorry… Any woman that can be married to somebody in the wrestling business for that long is a fricken saint… Even the best of us. Not that I’ve been one of the best husbands in wrestling, but even the best of us it’s a mother F’er to be married to the wrestling business… What an amazing woman Jan is(Ross’s Wife) I love her very much and I love you too Jim… Really thinking about you not stop right now and it’s hard to do the show actually. To be honest.”

Waltman on Eddie Guerrero Wanted to Go on Last:

“One time in WCW on a House Show… I thought I was doing Eddie Guerrero and I a favor by having our match moved on earlier he got mad(Eddie) because he thought he was demoting us to a lower spot on the card. Even though we were getting paid the same money.”

Russo on wrestlers need to hit the Gym:

“Today’s roster these guys look like my next door neighbor. You wouldn’t recognize them in an airport. They look like regular fricken guys… I’m watching Wrestlemania X today and bro all these fricken guys every guy on the show looks tremendous. The body on Henning the body on Piper you know what I mean… Shawn, Scott. The list goes on and on… Bro this is what I do know… when I was in the wrestling business steroids or no steroids these guys were in the gym every single day… it was a religion to them their bodies were part of the presentation and whether they were on steroids or not they were fricken working out at a gym, on the road, never missed a beat. I look at this roster today and you can’t tell me these guys to a gym. They don’t look the fricking part and to me, if you don’t look the part I’m not going to believe it. It’s unbelievable to me.”

Russo on who he likes in WWE:

“I’m a Reigns fan… Listen, creative has killed Roman Reigns I mean they’ve absolutely killed him. I don’t hold it against him. But bro the guy looks like a wrestler. He looks like he belongs and of course, he does because it’s in his bloodlines. I’m a huge fan of Bray… I hate to say this but if I was writing for the WWE Bray Wyatt would be of Undertaker status. Because this guy is so fricking talented it’s freighting. I love Charlotte. I think when all is said and done she’s going to be the greatest female wrestlers of all time.”

Russo on how to use Owens’s weight:

“Everything I’ve said about Kevin Owens, the guy doesn’t like to workout, maybe he’s a little lazy. I’m just saying that but my point is bro, the guy visually being a little bit overweight if I were writing for him that would be part of the character and part of the gimmick and then it would work for him. But the fact that it’s not addressed, it’s not part of the gimmick, it’s never discussed. That’s where ask a writer the disconnect comes for me… If they (WWE) looked at Kevin Owens and they worked his look into his character in my opinion bro it would be a thousand times better and I would have no issue with it. But when they call a guy like that a Prize Fighter, and he looks the way he does that’s where the disconnect is for me.”

Russo on McMahon thought Jenna Jameson was ugly:

“Jenna Jameson… she was red hot at this time absolutely red hot… I was working on these vignettes I got together with Bruce (Pritchard) and we had the idea of let’s see if we can get Jenna Jameson… We had Jenna Jameson at Bruce’s house in Bruce’s jetted hot tub in the house bro stark naked. Stark naked with Val (Sean Morley) in the fricking hot tub. Ok so we shot these series of vignettes with Jenna Jameson Bruce and I thought they were absolute gold… Vince(McMahon) we played him the vignettes. Vince cut Ninety percent of the vignettes out because he thought Jenna Jameson was ugly. “
