Russo has also posted a blog about contacting McMahon, which you can read here:
Late last night . . . I reached out to Vince McMahon again. Even though I know that is wrong on so many levels . . . it’s what my heart told me to do. In the past, that olive branch would have been motivated by the need of money—in order to support my family—but, I can tell you that isn’t the case now. Currently, through the hard work of everybody involved, thank God, THE BRAND continues to grow, and with help from other outside projects I am close to being able to pay my bills without taking much from what’s left of my savings. In conjunction with that, I feel I have a real opportunity at I Heart Radio at the moment—one I’m really excited about.
So I’m good, I’m not worried about money as I usually am right now. By putting it all in God’s hands he has provide for both me and my family. But . . . I have to be totally raw and honest here . . .as I sit on the sidelines and see the wrestling audience diminishes week, after week, after week, with no ray of light anywhere in sight—it begins to affect me personally. Especially when I think about my former boss Vince McMahon. Look–I’d be lying to you if I told you that I didn’t love Vince, because I do. And, with all the slandering done of my name over the years by his company, you probably think I’m out of my mind . . . and . . . maybe I am. Unfortunately, even though I don’t agree with their smear campaign towards me—I do understand it . . .and expect it.
It’s really hard to understand what “ego” entails unless you’ve been in the wrestling business. The level of egotistical human beings I have worked with in the past is something that a regular, blue collar guy, or gal, would never understand. In a business that is dominated by me, myself and I—Vince is no different. I have never heard Vince McMahon publicly put anybody else over, not a talent, not an office worker, no one. On top of that, when it’s time to give someone else credit for the share of success they contributed to his business . . . it’s usually a kill and burial—the ego just won’t allow that. But still—I understand–it’s part of what I signed up for.
And, that is why I once again reached out to Vince last night. I have always been here. I have always keep my eye on the product. I know what it once was . . .and I know what it now is. I’ll always want to help him . . . that is me . . . that is my make-up. . . that is my heart. And, if Vince doesn’t want any help, mine, or anybody else’s simply out of pride . . . that is understandable, but, through God I have learned over the years . . . we can’t do it here alone . . . that’s why others were put into our lives.
