Russo Comments on Jim Ross, TNA

vince russoVince Russo and Jim Ross both addressed the rumors going around that part of the reason TNA recently let Russo go was for being a part of the WWE Hall of Famer’s podcast. On his blog, Ross stated that the two “never knocked Impact” during their discussion, and that they had barely even breached the subject during the interview. On his website – pyroandballyhoo.com – Vince took a few shots at members of TNA management, and people behind the scenes in the company. 

“For TNA Management to make the decision for us to “take a break” because they chose not to trust either JR, or myself, in doing his podcast, shows a COMPLETE and UTTER lack of professionalism and competence on their part … Maybe when push came to shove, certain members of TNA Management chose to not have me around because they felt I was a threat to their egotistical power, and they used this podcast as a way out. I guess we’ll never know.” 

KILLAM: I’m probably a bit too close to this situation to actually say much, but I can definitely tell you that as ridiculous as it sounds for people in TNA to care about a podcast, there’s more truth to this story than I’d like there to be.
