TNA Wrestling co-founder Jerry Jarrett recently had some strong words for Vince Russo in an interview with PostandCourier.com. At one point, he said Russo is a “cancer” to the TNA creative team.
“Until they make radical surgical changes in creative, and unless they get some people who comprehend the wrestling business, they are doomed to be the financial drain on Panda [Energy] that they are now and have been since inception. The core of their problems is the creative development of their product. They have to cut the cancer out,” he said.
“I would deserve the label ‘stupid’ if I had made the decision to hire Vince Russo. But I made the horrendous mistake of yielding to my son’s (Jeff) wishes. He obviously has qualities that I don’t recognize or understand. How can a person who has a 15-year history of failure still keep a job?”
