Vince Russo Reveals What New Japan Pro Wrestling Talent He Loves Watching

Vince Russo has made no secret that he's not an avid viewer of many independent wrestling promotions. The former WWE, WCW and TNA writer has been on record saying that he doesn't often agree with the "smark" wrestling fans.

On last night's Wrestling Inc Podcast, we brought up next weekend's New Japan Pro Wrestling Invasion Attack coverage. When asked if he was going to watch it, Vince replied in usual fashion.

"Not only am I going to wake up on at four in the morning, I'm going to watch the show with bells on!," Russo said sarcastically.

However, Russo performed a bit of a signature swerve when jokingly asked if he was more excited for KUSHIDA vs. Will Ospreay or Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito.

"I just saw my boy Will Saturday, I'm Will's biggest fan. You can even ask him that. I saw him the UK a year ago, and said it was ridiculous that he wasn't over in the United States at least working for TNA," Russo said.

Russo explained that he enjoys Ospreay's work inside the ring, but said there was more to it than that.

"He's a great worker, and he works his character in the ring as well. That's why I fell in love with him immediately. I know Will and I really like Will," said Russo.
