Vic Venom Is Back

Former WWE, WCW and TNA writer Vince Russo recently posted an editorial to his website, Pyro and Ballyhoo, announcing the return of his alter ego, Vic Venom.

Russo used the Venom name while he wrote for WWE and the WWE Magazine several years ago, and addresses why he used the name in his post. The article is written as ‘Venom’, and it addresses a number of topics, including criticisms of Russo himself, why he originally used the name, and more. You can read an excerpt from the post below:

Now, I get it, he had that naggin’ wife and his bratty brats to feed, and, no matter how much he despised what he was watchin’ on WWF TV, he had to tread carefully because he couldn’t afford to lose his job. But, Russo, Russo could just never keep his mouth shut–you know–that’s how us I-talians are—so, he had to figure out a way to make his opinion known—while protectin’ his spot in the company at the same time. Now, whether he’s a complete jerk, or not, you’ve got to give Russo his due here because this is what he did. HE CREATED ME—VIC VENOM—and the reason why was simple–his intention was to go in the WWF magazine, write about how crappy the product was, put MY NAME TO IT, and then get away with it by explaining to everybody that IT WAS ALL A WORK!!! And, you know what—the potato heads bought it!!! Under MY pen name, Russo was able to say whatever he wanted—without ever puttin’ his livelihood in jeopardy!!!
