Perhaps you’re not familiar with Vince Russo. (I mean, you’re on With Spandex, so you almost certainly are.) The mastermind behind a whole lot of WWF’s “crash TV” Attitude Era storylines (especially the edgier ones) was poached by WCW in 1999 to turn the company around, and the little a-hole promptly torpedoed the promotion to such an extent that people still believe he was a sleeper agent for WWE. In recent years, Russo has been maybe-secretly working for Impact, hosting a podcast, and getting rejected by companies for which he offered to work for free.

At this point, the mere name “Vince Russo” is a very, very dirty word to a whole lot of wrestling fans, but Russo is like two decades deep in getting enormous enjoyment from haters. Anyway, as you might expect, Russo has not been a fan of the way WWE has been conducting business for the past few years, and he finally got so fed up with the current product that he decided to bury the hatchet and give Vince McMahon a call.

He told Fightful.com that he’s been in contact with McMahon in the past week, and he very magnanimously offered to help WWE out.
