Is Vince Russo Still Working With TNA?
Vince Russo recently denied that he’s under TNA contract, but danced around the issue of being a consultant from home. He told WrestleCrap.com:
First of all, just for the record, let me make one thing perfectly straight: 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 absolutely no idea. I have not been under contract with any wrestling company since February 2012. So everything you read about ‘Oh, he’s with TNA and there’s still 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.
If I’m working as a consultant for TNA, if I’m working as a consultant for WWE, if I’m working as a consultant with Jeff Jarrett, you know what? I choose not to comment on that, because I’m just as fascinated to sit back in my house here in the mountains, in beautiful Colorado, and just see how two years and three months I have been out of the business, but yet every day I still seem to be the topic of conversation. And I am totally, totally entertained by that. So if I say I’m consulting for Jeff or if I’m consulting for Vince or if I’m consulting for TNA, it would take the enjoyment out of that for me. My number one priority right now is pyroandballyhoo.com, that is where I’m going to be spending the majority of my time.
