Former WWE, WCW and TNA creative writer Vince Russo has published another blog on his website and this time he is comparing Lana and Rusev to Sable and Marc Mero. Down below is an excerpt from the blog:
“Having worked with Marc Mero and Sable, the scenario with Lana/Rusev is one that is quite familiar to me when I look at history. Many will say that Sable got over at the expense of Mero, but in my opinion that is absolutely not true. In that situation, Sable was given the opportunity to break out on her own when Mero was sidelined with an injury, and she did just that. She grabbed the spotlight, thus in turn becoming one of the most popular female figures in the history of wrestling. At that point, Marc was forced to play “catch-up ball” when he returned, and to his credit he was able to somewhat work in Sable’s shadow to make his light shine even brighter. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here. The WWE and Vince McMahon want to build Lana while Rusev is still alive and breathing on the active roster.”
