Any reports that indicated the TNA writer Vince Russo is out of the loop when it comes to plans for this Monday's iMPACT have been greatly exaggerated. According to, Russo was on hand when TNA announced the big Monday plans in New York along with Dixie Carter, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. Reports also indicate that Russo has had creative meetings with Bischoff dating all the way back to November.

Vince Russo, however, continues to tell people that he hasn't talked to either Hulk Hogan or Eric Bischoff. Hogan has also been saying that he hasn't spoken to Russo as well.

Despite all of the back and forth talk, it has been well documented that both Hogan and Russo have in fact had secretive meetings, possibly in attempt to keep things from leaking out on the Internet. Either way, the news got leaked out by someone within TNA management.
