Little On Vince Russo’s Career
Initially beginning his career as a sports editor, Vince Russo entered the world of professional wrestling as a freelance writer for WWF magazine in 1992.
Almost four years later, the WWF promoted him to their Creative Team. Working with Vince McMahon, Russo began writing storylines with controversial subjects and edgy topics, which catapulted Monday Night Raw to a new height of success.
Consequently, his popularity grew, and he became the head writer for WWF. However, Chris Kreski replaced him two years later in 1999.
He later revealed the reason behind leaving the WWF was increased work time after the introduction of Smackdown!
Additionally, his relationship with Vince McMahon severed over the years, and Russo felt that McMahon did not let him spend time with his family.
After he departed from WWF, he briefly worked for WCW and WWE in the early 2000s.
Vince Russo eventually joined the TNA as a creative writer in 2002 and worked there in various positions, including production team member until 2014.
Moreover, Russo has written columns for various websites, including What Culture and Chris Jericho’s website, WebIsJericho.com.
