9781550228687: Rope Opera: How WCW Killed Vince Russo

It’s been a decade since The Monday Night War waged between the WWF and WCW generated unprecedented and astronomical ratings, and the landscape of the sport of kings” has changed radically. But one thing remains constant: the fans chanting Fire Russo!” can still be heard at TV tapings and pay-per-view events across North America. And Vince Russo, the man who has at times been called the most hated man in professional wrestling” wouldn’t have it any other way. In his first book, Forgiven, Vince Russo delivered a modern-day parable about the price of success. In heartbreaking detail, he showed how a godforsaken business” and the desire for acclaim in his career as a writer for Vince McMahon’s WWF led him into a spiritual wasteland. Today, a changed Russo has returned to prominence in wrestling a world he both loves and that has, he acknowledges, broken his heart as one of the writers and masterminds behind TNA, the world’s fastest-growing and most cutting-edge wrestling promotion. For two hours every Thursday, Russo’s ideas and words revolutionize wrestling on Spike TV; but what he achieves on Impact! on a weekly basis has been many years in the making. He’s been known as both the saviour of the WWF and the man who destroyed WCW, and Rope Opera: How WCW Killed Vince Russo is the true, behind-the-scenes story of, quite simply, the rise and fall and rebirth of professional wrestling. Many have tried to explain the inner workings of wrestling’s most turbulent era but this is the first time someone in the centre of the maelstrom has ever laid everything bare. In returning to the page to take readers from the death of WCW to the rise of TNA, Vince Russo has crafted his most remarkable storyline: that a grown man can come to terms with, and find peace within, the insanity of the squared circle.

About the Author:

Vince Russo is a Christian minister. He was the editor of "WWF Magazine," the head of the WCW's creative department, and the creative force behind the National Wrestling Alliance's Total Nonstop Action Wrestling promotion. He is the author of "Forgiven." He lives in Broomfield, Colorado.

Review:

"In the vernacular of professional wrestling itself, I think I've actually become a Russo 'mark' . . . Russo pretty much lets it all hang out here, warts and all."  —blogcritics.org



"I recommend [this book] to individuals who are curious about the behind-the- scenes occurrences of a wrestling company, specifically TNA. Moreover, the 255-page book depicts Vince Russo's account of his professional life in wrestling and personal life as a Christian. If anything, it gives readers a unique portrayal of Vince Russo as a person as opposed to Vince Russo the character."  —Slam! Sports
