The following are some of the fan questions Vince Russo answered on his official Myspace page:

In your opinion, what’s the ONE storyline that changed professional wrestling forever? The Montreal Screwjob? Hogan as the 3rd man? Or is there more than one?

The Montreal screwjob wasn’t a storyline–it was REAL. I’d have to say definitely the "Third Man". You have to give Hogan and Bischoff credit for that.

When are you going to get me a job at the greatest wrestling organization in the world? LOL

Al–you can have my job after they take me away in a strait jacket.

Will Sean Waltman and Scott Hall continue to feature on Impact in the upcoming weeks/months? If yes, then how prominent will their roles be? Or has not much been planned for them at the moment?

That all depends on Scott and Sean.

Have you noticed that every major successful angle in the history of professional wrestling has mirrored an occurring cultural or social trend? Do you think that approach might be the key to developing something new in TNA?

It might be, Chris–but you also need the right players. It doesn’t matter how good a story is–if you don’t have the right people in the right parts.
