Squash Match! Russo & TNA part ways!

Posted: February 14, 2012 by Kick Out At 2! in Shane D, Squash Match!

While I’m not one for enjoying anyone not having a job in this current market, especially in an area as specialized as professional wrestling, I can’t say that the news that Vince Russo and TNA aren’t working together isn’t something I’m happy to hear.

I was talking to my girlfriend about TNA last night as we are going to go see the house show in Beckley, VA on Saturday for my birthday, and the way I summed it up was this…they may have the better in-ring talent, and they have 3 of my favorite wrestlers (Joe, AJ and Daniels), but until recently, I couldn’t stand to watch their TV show.  It was badly booked, illogical, and reminded me of the death throes of WCW.  Of course, the reason for this comparison was the fact that both they dying WCW and TNA had the same captain of the ship…Vinnie Ru.

Russo, in my mind, is a cancer to the professional wrestling business.  His “smash TV” style of booking, where everything’s a shoot and wrestlers are constantly trying to swerve each other, the audience, the booker, the company, the Internet…it’s terrible and it held TNA back.  Heck, I’d even go so far as to say it pushed it backwards a couple of years.

Now I don’t know what the future for TNA holds, but I can honestly say I’ve been liking it a lot more recently.  If that’s due to Russo’s handprints being removed, then all the better. TNA’s got a long way to go before they can really make an “Impact” in wrestling the way that they want to, but, in my humble opinion, they made the first real step towards it with this move.
