Nope you get a month, after that if there's no Russo you get a probation. Simple as that.

You've been warned and like I said last time, you make plenty of posts that are informative or fun and there's no need to make these "I know something but can't say what it is" posts.

Then disregard the Russo thing as it will overtly be hard prove going by prior history. This isn't a "I know something but can't say what it is" I am just saying posters should have their antenna up. It may come to absolutely nothing. Jarrett and Russo has had a weird relationship in recent years. It is a month until the next tapings. I don't know if he will be a physical presence or an outside consultant.

If you just want to post more concrete things I will do that. Even so it is Pro Wrestling and this thread wise it is even worse it is TNA.

I've given accurate TNA scoops here for years even as recent as this week (TNA slashing wages) but I guess that's coming an end here. Most of the fun of TNA is the backstage madness. I thought flagging POSSIBLE Russo involvement was worth noting.

I don't what to quit or be probated that's the issue. I like it here. Wrestling news is rumours and innuendo. Look how much Meltzer hedges in the Observer. I never said Russo was joining TNA but now I've 30 or so days to prove he is. That's deeply unfair. I am just saying there's a rumoured change in Russo's personal circumstance upcoming that may lead to it being involved in TNA.

I've been pretty definitive about stuff - specfic people leaving ROH for example. This ISN'T one of those times. Essentially Russo's name has popped up that's ALL. Will believe Russo is joining TNA when it happens. He's so toxic.

How hard is it to go 'I think Russo's coming back because of [whatever loving reason]' instead of posting 'RUSSO' then publicly masturbating about how you have a source but can't say anymore? Like even if you posted that Spud contacted you on Twitter saying Russo's coming back, do you really think that would somehow get picked up by wrestling news sites or that it would get back to Spud that some weirdo outed him on a dead gay messageboard.

He's a toxic influence and has destroyed companies, but man, Russo's decision to back Jeff Jarrett and push him as a main eventer back in WCW has reaped dividends and kept the guy employed for a long time. It helps to be friends with the guy who has THE STROKE

E: I'm not surprised if Russo is in the mix. He and JJ must have read the bible together awesomely once or something.

TNA sent talent & Josh Matthews down to AAA for the Lucha Libre World Cup last year, and AAA was looking at using TNA to host the event this year.

For what it's worth, and it's probably not much, I'm with rovert on this V-Ru situation. It's something TNA has, in the past, actively hidden when they brought him back, and this might especially be true if they're trying to build relationships with Japanese companies, and attracting talent that should know better than to get into bed with a company where he has influence. If Russo comes back it'll probably be very quiet until it becomes clear through the product. For better and (usually) worse, you always know when you're watching a show with his fingerprints on it.

I've honestly wondered this for years as well. It's got to be more than just him being a good company man and trying to stick up for his employer, he takes poo poo really personally.

Now that I think about it, I remember him being an insufferable whiny shithead on Tough Enough way back in 2001(?) and I had just assumed he grew up a bit as he made it to the commentator desk in WWE.

Nope.

Nope.

He was a real poo poo on Tough Enough, but did seem to find a groove with JBL on Smackdown when he was an announcer. Like everyone in TNA though, he became bitter and demotivated the second he walked into the Impact Zone.

I don't think J-Ru isn't banning discussion of Vince Russo, he's banning Rovert from his famous "I know something but I can't tell you and well, if it happens I'll let you know that I knew about it and if it didn't then plans changed".

I can't say whether or not Rovert knows any insider information or not about Russo's future but if Scoopman is going to keep teasing scoops he needs to be held accountable for spreading speculation as the gospel and based on how far back he's backpedaled on the Russo thing it looks like it was his personal speculation.

The problem with Rovert scoops is that he's insufferable to half the forum and the other half love him because they like seeing goons get mad about poo poo. Almost every time he posts he derails a topic for pages, and it hasn't changed and it never will so if J-ru has to start being more severe on Rovert and Anti-Rovert derails that's fine because our last two mods barely did anything about it.

I think oatgan was threatening him and Roque with a probation/mod challenge or something in the 2016 ROH thread on Adam Cole leaving but never got around to it because they never commit to anything, and oatgan stepped down before the payout.

It's not too late to correct the mistakes of the past. If Russo comes back, Rovert should be crowned mod. In all seriousness, it's pretty obvious the bloke knows what he's talking about, even if he can be weird about it. The people who get mad about his posting are to blame.

Again I never said Russo was returning just that he popped up on the radar so to speak.

I should have checked Russo's account (I am blocked tbf) but I didn't as I was told this wasn't public well it is. The news I was referring to is Vince Russo moving out of Colorado after a decade at the same time TNA is moving to Canada:



However what is new today is Russo's most recent show:

quote:

HOW TNA SITUATION IS EXACTLY WHAT HAS KILLED THE WRESTLING BUSINESS On today's episode, Vince brings on BRAND Correspondent, and TNA Specialist, Andre Corbeli, to discuss the change of leadership in TNA. In this insightful episode, Vince gives his strong opinions and explains why this "change"is exactly what's wrong with the wrestling business, and what has crippled the business over the past 17 years. Vince then discusses his relationship with Jeff Jarrett and explains his hurt and disappointment over the situation.
