* DistinctionWithoutADifference: Russo has defended himself from accusations that he just hates pro wrestling by insisting that he only hates "fake wrestling". [[{{Kayfabe}} So, um, yeah,]] by his own admission Vince Russo actually does hate ProfessionalWrestling.

*** Interestingly enough, the "Pink Slip on a Pole" match between Mankind and TheRock was the only well-received match of the kind (not in kayfabe for obvious reasons) and it took place after Russo was shown the door.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Like Wrestling/PaulHeyman, Russo began in journalism, and is one of few (non-wrestler) bookers that most people can identify by name. Both men were collectively responsible for the Attitude Era. Funny how a pair of New Yorkers had such massive influence on a traditionally southern pastime.

Both men were collectively responsible for the Attitude Era. Funny how a pair of New Yorkers had such massive influence on a traditionally southern pastime. The main difference between them is that Heyman is considered an EvilGenius of wrestling booking, while Russo is considered a complete hack.
* ArchEnemy: Wrestling/JimCornette ''loathes'' Russo with such vicious, searing passion that if hate could be weaponised, Russo would have been zipped up in a body bag ''years'' ago. Cornette has stated that his biggest ambition in life is to live long enough to piss on Russo's grave, and knowing Cornette, that's probably NotHyperbole.

*** When he was [[http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/749785-vince-russo-rants-on-kevin-owens-as-universal-champ-says-wrestling-is-at-rock-bottom-david-arquette-was-more-over-than-owens-ever-will-be criticising WWE]] for putting the Universal Championship on [[Wrestling/KevinSteen Kevin Owens]], he brought up criticisms off his David Arquette swerve again, claiming that David Arquette "was more over than Kevin Owens will ever be". Just... '''''[[EnragedByIdiocy what?!?!]]'''''

His infamy is such that when it was announced that he had been re-hired by the WWE in 2002, the rest of the writing staff threatened a walk-out. As it turned out, Russo was swiftly demoted a few days later after a "big idea" he proposed bombed horribly; rumor has it that it would've been a restart of WWE's own failed WCW "Invasion" angle led by Wrestling/EricBischoff. He left for greener pastures at the fledgling Wrestling/{{TNA}} shortly afterward. (As a point of interest, Bischoff was hired by WWE a month after Russo's dismissal, though he eventually joined Russo at TNA.) In 2012, Dixie Carter announced that TNA and Russo had mutually parted ways and that he would be replaced by [[Characters/WWEManagers Bruce "Brother Love" Pritchard]]. However, it was revealed two years later that Russo was still working for the company as an unofficial consultant, most likely because Carter [[VetinariJobSecurity had no one to replace him]]. [[note]](This incurred a much more serious problem for TNA, unfortunately: Spike TV has apparently not sat well with Russo and when he left in 2012, Spike's directive to TNA was not to bring him back at any point following. The discovery Russo had been indeed filling a seat at TNA caused enough of a backlash at Spike for them to break any further renewal negotiations for ''Impact Wrestling'' and TNA's premiere television show moved to the Destination America channel in 2015. Then, because Russo attempted to get hired independetly by Destination America and made the weird mistake of throwing TNA under the bus on his sales pitch. Destination America decided to not renovate TNA's contract and the show has moved to Pop TV as of 2016. It has been revealed Russo has attempted the same sale pitch to Pop TV. If it will have the same effect is unknown.)[[/note]]
