Dixie had no idea how to do this. She got Russo as a "good idea".

I think its a matter of better than nothing, i mean, who could take russos place and even thought that russos angles are shitty, i think that without him it would be worst ( yes, it can be worst)

Yeah we bitch about TNA and Russo alot. And btw I think one of us is training to become a booker (Allison?)
We also come up with great ideas that TNA can use to make their product better. Not all ideas are "Fire Russo" you know. We have come up with ideas that can be implemented regardless of whether Russo is making writing or not. And if you came here to only tell us that, and not have a meaning-fucking-ful discussion, then your'e free to leave.

It really doesnt help that Russo either keeps recycling old storylines or seems to not actually watch TNA Wrestling. Its like he has no idea whats going on half the time with the ideas that get on TV. Granted he now has Hogan, Bischoff and Dixie in his ear telling him that hes a genius!

Its like...
"YES! We got RVD!"
"Wait... we wanted RVD? isnt he getting up there in age?"
"Yeah, but we'll sign all these wrestlers that are older than him so he looks young!!"
"Oh Russo you GENIUS! You did it agaiinnnnnnnnnn!"

I lold at the last part. Your'e right that Dixie and Hulk are praising him without even looking at reason..RVD can still go, don't get me wrong, but hes been stale for a long time now..since ECW lol. I want to see new talent that I haven't before.

I think wrestling companies really need to start doing performance analysis evaluation's on they're talent and bookers i think if someone hasnt made a positive impact on your company evaluate them and terminate them/demote them its what they do in all major companys. but pro wrestling is so politicle if you know the right guys you could get a job anywhere. But in answer to your question i think he originally got the job from jeff jarrett, and jarrett loves russo ever since he put the title on him in WCW so i just dont think dixie has the business sized balls enough to fire anyone.

It's one thing criticizing wrestlers knowing I can never do what they can do, but when it comes to Russo, I actually could do his job so much better than him!

Oh and I stopped watching TNA about 6 months ago.

I watched that Dixie Carter shoot once, and Jim Cornette (who else!) asked her why Vince Russo is still employed.

She defended Russo by saying that many times when a "FIRE RUSSO" chant broke out, he never actually wrote or booked whatever was happening in the ring. Once, she totally flipped out at the creative staff over this, stating that the next time these chants happened on something Russo was not responsible for, the person behind it would lose his job. She had felt the rest of her creative team were being sloppy and half-arsed because they had a scapegoat in Vince Russo.

Reading between the lines: Dixie Carter and Vince Russo are having an affair.

That sounds totally fair. Rip the staff but defend the head of creative. Could of sworn being the "head" meant you were responsible for everything that come out of creative.

LOL at Dixie.

I think the reason they chant "fire russo" anytime something stupid happens is because everything stupid in the wrestling biz was in some way inspired by the king of wrestling stupidity............vince russo

this doesn't suprise me at all just look at all the idiots she has hired but the constant defence of Russo even when it is his fault tells me she either wants(or is getting)some of that Russo penis so I wonder when it all comes out how Russo will try to swerve his way out of this afair?

That won't surprise me one bit. I bet Dixie hasn't seen WCW before.

We have valid points on why Russo is a crapstain in wrestling. Thats why TNA is getting low stuff.

Wait, are you defending Russo? I dont get it...

WELLLLLL, in summary.... Russo = Bad, Dixie = Horrible at playing a storyline out, Hogan = Ehhh.
So in essence we have... Horribly Bad at playing a storyline out, Ehhhh!

In all fairness to Russo, he's nowhere near as terrible as he used to be around 1999-2001. Sure, he still has a ton of bad ideas, but at least they don't sound like the ramblings of a man with a fiersome coke habit.

The reason long time fans rip on Russo and other bad things about wrestling is we have been watching wrestling long enough to like accept being fed crap. The powers that be in both of the big two are insane because they actually ignore what their fans want. What kind of company ignores what it's consumers tell them they want? They are living in a bubble that will bust someday and wrestling may become a thing of the past.

You forgot about Bischoff: Follows Hogan like a puppy. He should come up with his own ideas instead of playing lackey to Hogan.

Russo loved Jarrett and vice versa way before then. Try when he got the guitar in WWF. EARLIER. lmao

I read the thread. And you were the last post. Stop by the welfare office and see if they'll help you out with an education. Or go sit outside of a day care and stare through the window, or watch people walk in and out. You're bound to pick up something.

Vince Russo watched over Jeff Jarrett his whole career.

This is why Jeff Jarrett is a part of Immortal, and was quite a sheister in the leading up to BFG. And is also why Jarrett gets his own Double J Double M A skit, apart from everyone else, so he can still stand out on his own time. As long as Jarrett has money in the company and he can draw heat as well as he can, and he sure fucking can, Vince Russo will have a job, and as long as Vince Russo has a job, so will Jeff Jarrett, and so will he be successful on television.

Vince Russo is brilliant in a way that he can keep stars moving, he can keep them hated, he can keep them loved. Whether the ends justify the means in all of his storylines is up for another discussion. But when it comes to surviving through the juggle of politics, talent, writing, and balancing it through as many people as he can, he's the puppetmaster. As long as you give him a little space, that little space today being the space occupied by OJ,EY, Sharkboy and Spanky.

This guys been there for a month or two. The guy talking to Ric Flair and Flair actually stood there, with his big smile and listened during Immortals entrance this past Thursday. Right at the beginning. It's the guy that's always either acting or fucking around practically the first to "jump" out of the stands during Jarrett's skit.
