These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Vince Russo
Base Breaker: Russo is either a delusional idiot who never contributed anything good to wrestling, a pretty good wrestling writer who struggled when given complete control, or, rarely, an ahead-of-his-time genius visionary
Genius Bonus: Russo, particularly during his time in WCW, has been fond of referencing obscure pieces of wrestling trivia, often as punchlines. Naturally, because Smart Marks are a niche segment of the professional wrestling fanbase, they tend to fall awkwardly flat.
For example: during Russo's time as WCW booker, there was a confrontation between Eric Bischoff and Sid Vicious on Nitro. Bischoff was making fun of Sid for being reluctant to hit him and lose his job as a result. Bischoff said "What's the matter Sid, can't find your scissors?" Those in the know would recognize this as a reference to a real-life altercation Sid once had with Arn Anderson, in which Sid stabbed Arn with a pair of scissors. But most of the people watching that show had never heard of the incident, and were wondering why the hell Eric was talking about scissors all of a sudden.
The Mole: During his run with WCW, many fans and even a few wrestlers suspected that he was a double agent sent in by Vince McMahon to sabotagethe competition from within. He wasn't.
