Vince Russo tweeted this about Bryan Alvarez RE: the Death Of WCW 10th Anniversary Edition (which Vince seems to have a big problem with)….
Gotta go to bed. Word of advice–If wrestling books aren't written by the WRESTLERS—don't believe a word in them!
He posted a few other whines about Bryan and the book if you care to read them.
Let's see, now…Vince Russo is by anyone's definition not a wrestler but he has written two books about wrestling.
Bryan Alvarez is a former indy wrestler and has co-authored two books (I'm counting the two editions of Death Of WCW as two different books because of all the new/revised content in the new edition) as well as a regular writer for a long-running, well respected wrestling newsletter.
So by Vince Russo's own standards, we should disregard his books completely.
Sounds good to me!
By that logic, no one should buy MY books, either!
Wait, what's that uncomfortable silence about?
Also, please don't forget that all the good stuff that happened with Russo around was his doing, but all the bad stuff he either can't remember or wasn't responsible for. So it's not like he has much more in the way of credibility. Not to mention his entire WWF gig was predicated on blowing up the old way of former wrestlers doing things that way that they always did and needing a fresh outside viewpoint and all that bullshit. Frankly I'm shocked he has time to tweet, because those MVP backstage segments don't write themselves!
