Vincent James Russo (born January 24, 1961) is an American author, podcaster, professional wrestling booker, writer, and pundit.
He is notable for his tenures with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA, now Impact Wrestling) in creative roles. Russo occasionally made appearances as an on-screen authority figure, and professional wrestler, in WCW and TNA. His writing style, which emphasizes shock value and “swerves” over in-ring action, has made him a controversial figure with wrestling fans.
During a self-booked in-ring career in WCW, Russo became a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, scored televised singles victories over future WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Booker T (the latter to win his world title), and never lost a match. He later placed himself in the main event of multiple TNA pay-per-views.
Since April 2015, he has hosted a daily podcast with his company: “Vince Russo’s The Brand”. – Wikipedia
