Vince Russo has officially parted ways with TNA Wrestling, according to a recent post on his Twitter account.
Russo has been working as a consultant for Impact Wrestling, most recently helping with the announce team. The drama started because reports that he was still with the company have been denied for quite some time, until an email was accidentally sent to another wrestling news website, revealing his role in the company.
Certain people within TNA had wanted to keep his participating in the broadcast under the radar, and many have speculated that TNA lying about Russo’s employment have severely effected their contract negotiations with Spike TV, which we exclusively reported on this weekend. However, just as many reports have indicated that Spike TV has been aware of Russo’s status for awhile, and any issues between the two parties are more about the long-term investment of the network continuing to air Impact Wrestling.
