Best Russo Offering Ever
Loved what Russo did during the Attitude Era. Wasn’t a fan of his WCW work. Respected his TNA time but never was a fan of his several pod offerings.
Until now. Matt Koon plays a fantastic host to Russo, guiding Vince through his time in the wrestling business. That chemistry, along with Russo’s infamous DGAF attitude, make for a compelling listen. Give it a try!
Boring show typical russo banter
Great contrast with Russo and Koon. Highly entertaining!
