Vince Russo appeared on the Pounding The Meat podcast and he says that he had an email exchange with Vince McMahon a couple of months ago. Russo says he reached out to offer his services as a consultant.
“A couple of months ago,” Russo said about his conversation with McMahon. “I was offering my help as a consultant. I didn’t want to be hired, I’m never gonna work in that environment again but I was like ‘bro your show freaking sucks.’ Seriously, are you watching? It was that conversation all over again. How that ended was Vince wanted me to watch Raw for a couple of weeks and give my feedback. I’m like bro I’ll be happy to do that, I ain’t doing that for free. Your product sucks bro, I’m willing to help you. I’m not gonna jump through hoops to help you. If you wanna pay me to critique the show for the next couple of months, I’ll be happy to do that. But I certainly was not gonna do that for free because the product is horrible. I was just looking to help the guy because the product is horrible!”
Russo compared today’s WWE product to the 1992 WWF product and said that when WWE’s product was suffering, they were in panic mode when they dropped below 3 million viewers but these days they are just over 1 and a half million viewers.
In 2017, Russo said he reached out to McMahon about helping with the WWE product. Last October, Russo said he had his final email exchange with McMahon. He wrote, “After knowing Vince McMahon for 30 years & having great success w/him during my time at WWE–yesterday he & I had our FINAL EXCHANGE. It’s an unfortunate story & sad in many ways, but, Closure is good. Not ready to discuss now, but I will be. Where? ChannelAttitude.com.”
