Lance Storm Blogs: Shawn Michaels at Royal Rumble, Firing Vince Russo

Former WCW, ECW and WWE wrestler Lance Storm has updated some Q&As on his site. Some highlights:

on HBK in Royal Rumble 2003:
Believe it or not they don’t run all this stuff by me. I don’t even remember what I did at Royal Rumble 2003, let alone what Shawn was or wasn’t supposed to do.

on regular ECW/TNA fans:
I’ve never put much thought into it, but I think it’s kind of funny. I’ve watched a lot of TNA and have never noticed any specific fans ever. In ECW everyone new the guy in the straw hat but other than that, fans are generally fans, and if they think they are more than that, no harm done, but bragging about it is a bit silly.

on Dustin Rhodes:
I worked with him a ton during my WWE run, and always enjoyed it. Dustin is a very good worker, and just a fantastic guy to be around. I doubt they will give him a big push at this point though. I believe he is older than I am so WWE will likely focus on pushing younger guys.

on fixing TNA:
My first act would be to FIRE Vince Russo. IMO Russo has no understanding of the wrestling business and how to book or writing anything people could possibly care about. He hotshots every angle, he writes overly complicates things and almost without exception adds stupid comedic elements to everything that makes it impossible to emotionally invest in anything in TNA. Because of this all the talent in the world (and TNA has a ton of it) won’t make for a product people will care enough about to make TNA a success.
