Let’s Say Nice Things About... Vince Russo

Vince Russo

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: longtime writer Vince Russo.

I’ll start: I forget who it was that said it, but no one can write a story beginning more spectacularly than Vince Russo. We’ve seen what he’s done when left to his own devices, but when reined in, he’s been partially responsible for some of the most memorable moments in wrestling history.

His biggest strength as a writer is his ability to get everyone involved in the show, no matter what their place was on the card. No useless parts on his watch.

And let’s be honest: how many writers can say they gave their body in the name of sports entertainment? Not many, but Vince is on the list.

Not bad for a guy who started out writing for a magazine.

Your turn now. Say something nice about the controversial writer.

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
