Vince Russo Responds To Jerry Jarrett


In his new book, Jerry Jarret told his son Jeff that reading Russo’s TNA scripts were “Like reading a book by someone on LSD.”

Here is Vince Russo’s full message board post as a rebuttal:

Dear Marty,

I am completely taken back by your effort to defend me concerning Jerry Jarrett’s e-mail. What an honor to have somebody spend that kind of time in your favor.

I thank Jerry Jarrett for making it crystal clear why I have come to despise the wrestling business over the past 12 years. Jerry’s e-mail to Jeff clearly and matter-of-factly shows you first hand what kind of situations and individuals I have had to deal with throughout my career.

Let me just say it right now–I hate the wrestling business. The only thing that keeps me involved is all the young men and women in TNA who I truly care for. My interest is to counsel them and school them in a business that will just chew them up and spit them out . . . if they let it. My greatest joys come in this business today when I get to spend some quality time with the talent. This past Sunday AJ Styles and his wife invited me, my wife Amy and my daughter Annie to his church. It was the best time I had in the “wrestling business” in the past two years. To me–that’s what it’s all about.

I’m just sitting here stunned–trying to figure out what makes one individual discredit another. What? To me there is only one answer–again–tear others down=build yourself up.

I pray foir Jerry Jarrett and I mean that. I hope one day he will be able to find the peace, love, happiness, contentment and joy in his heart that I have discovered in mine.

Please let Jerry’s e-mail be a lesson to you all. If you can’t share love . . . it’s not worth sharing.

I thank you so much for remaining loyal. I appreciate the fact that you can see through it all and realize–WE WERE ENTERTAINED AT THE TIME AND THAT’S ALL WE EVER ASKED FOR.

Your will always be family.
