Former WWE Magazine Writer Opens Up On The Inner Workings Of The Publication

On Vince Russo joining the Magazine: "I consider Russo a friend. It's not for anything he did in the wrestling business but just as a person. I remember when my first child was born, I spoke to Russo a lot about what it's like to be a father, he'd talk about his own kids. Over the years, I've watched storylines that he's had a large hand in. Some of them I enjoyed and some I didn't like everyone else. I don't know if Vince Russo spoke about this when he was on your show but (RAW Magazine) that was a Russo idea. His idea was that The WWF Magazine would be the more traditional magazine and RAW magazine would be edgier, more truth, the wrestlers would speak out of character. I remember Vince Russo wrote a column once and he said "I'm going to print three letters you thought you'd never see in this magazine.....WCW" So he acknowledged the rival company. That may have even preceeded the attitude era. That Vince Russo was bringing his own attitude through the magazines, to the company."
