Vince Russo On His Match Finishes, Cornette’s Tirade, More

Matt Boone

The following is an excerpt from yet another Q&A from Vince Russo’s official Facebook page:

Could we ever see any of these in TNA anytime soon? Falls Count Anywhere Match, Bra & Panties Match, any new Titles(Hardcore Title)?
I don’t think you’ll be seeing any bras and panties matches–I respect our Knockouts way to much. But you will see other creative matches.
Any chance you could book a match that doesn’t end in a stupid finish? They are called finisher moves Vince, use them! A DQ in a CAGE MATCH!!! Are you off your mind? Two roll-ups and in the Main Event we saw about 8 finishing moves! Come on Russo, surely you learned your lessons in WCW? Let the wrestlers wrestle and do… what they do best! You don’t need screwy finishes or 12 finishing moves to make a match good!
I guess you will never see a DQ in an MMA fight? Do you have any idea what it takes to book over 400 matches a year–trying to make each one fresh and different? Any? If you do many you should apply for my job.
Hey Vince. Forget about all that other stuff. When are you gonna plug your book properly? Your last one was an inspiration work of art, and I expect no less from this one. Are you going to do book signings? Perhaps in Chicago? (maybe do a little Oprah? :P) Cause i need a certain Vic Venom to sign it. – Mish
This book is quite different–much, much more wrestling. Haven’t discussed signings yet–really enjoy doing them though. As soon as I have some lined up I will let you know.
Hey Vince, I am a huge fan. I was wondering if you could script a feud between any 2 wrestlers, who would they be and why?
The "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd and The Rock. How graet would that be?!!!
Did you happen to listen to Jim Cornette’s funny rant on TNA? He makes some good points buts very funny to listen to.
No, I don’t enjoy being personally attacked. Throughout my entire career I have never said one negative word about Jim Cornette–not one. If he wants to be a Vince Russo and TNA hater–let him knock his socks off–but I’m not really interested in listening to that.
