TNA News: Vince Russo comments on his contractual status with TNA
Former WWE and TNA creative team member Vince Russo declined to say whether he is working as a consultant for TNA or anyone else during an audio interview on WrestleCrap.com. However, he did note that he is not under contract with TNA.
"Just for the record, let me make one thing perfectly straight," Russo said. "My contract with TNA was over in February 2012. I do not have a contract with TNA that expires in three months. Where that information came from, I have no idea. I have not been under contract to any wrestling company since February 2012, just for the record. So everything you read about 'Oh, he's with TNA and there's still has three months left on his contract.' Who pulled that out of their backside and why, I have no idea. I am under contract with nobody.
"Number two, if I'm working as a consultant for TNA, if I'm working as a consultant with WWE, if I'm working as a consultant with Jeff Jarrett, you know what, I choose not to comment on that, because I just am fascinated to sit back in my house here in the mountains here in beautiful Colorado and just see how two years and three months I've been out of the business, but yet everyday I still seem to be the topic of conversation. And I am totally, totally entertained by that. So if I say that I am consulting for Jeff or I'm consulting for Vince or I'm consulting for TNA, it would take the enjoyment of that out of it for me."
Powell's POV: So Russo is not under contract, but he doesn't deny that is consulting for them or anyone else. I'm not sure where the three month contract talk came from. I know there have been reports about Eric Bischoff's contract status with TNA, but I don't recall seeing anything about Russo's contractual status as much as reports indicating that he's a creative consultant for the company.
Russo also announced that he is launching the Pyro & Ballyhoo website. He noted that he will be writing about various topics including pro wrestling. The site states that all pro wrestling material written by Russo will be available via subscription only. You can view the site at Pyroandballyhoo.com.
