As an ex-WWF, WCW, TNA and Rocky Mountain Pro guy, it’s no secret Vince Russo is looking to get back into the wrestling business.
In a recent interview with Fightful.com, Russo revealed that he had reached out to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon in an effort to offer his services.
“I’ve reached out to Vince McMahon in the past week,” said Russo, before stating that he wouldn’t elaborate too much. “He got back to me.”
The outspoken Russo who often criticizes the WWE product mentioned that their exchange was brief.
“I am still a wrestling fan at heart, going back to when I was 10, 11 years old. I hate today’s product. To me, it’s not professional wrestling,” Russo said. “I don’t want to be the guy critiquing the problem without saying ‘Here’s my olive branch, I think I can help you as the numbers go down every week.’ I didn’t use the word help. You don’t tell Vince McMahon he needs help. I said ‘if you want me to contribute, I’d love to once again contribute.'”
When quizzed on whether McMahon would be open to the idea of him returning, Russo indicated McMahon never gives much away when speaking to him.
“Vince never seems receptive. His response is always a couple of words. He’s not that guy. He’s the same guy that told me I could get a nanny (to raise) your kids,” said Russo.
