Bully Ray Slams Vince Russo’s Claim of Outperforming 80% of WCW Roster

One big thing: Bully Ray criticizes Vince Russo’s self-aggrandizing comments

Bully Ray, on “Busted Open Radio,” strongly rebuked Vince Russo’s recent claim that his character work was better than 80% of the WCW roster.

Key points:

• Bully Ray called Russo “a mark for himself”
• He revealed Russo’s brief stint at Johnny Rodz’s wrestling school
• Bully suggested Vince McMahon kept Russo off WWE television

Why it matters

Russo’s comments in the “Who Killed WCW?” docuseries have sparked controversy, with industry veterans pushing back against his self-assessment.

Bully Ray’s perspective:

• “That’s because you think so highly of your f***ing self and wanted to be a pro wrestler that you put yourself in the ring.”
• “If you think you with a f***ing Giants helmet is the best TV show — as the Judas Priest song says: you got another thing coming!”

The bigger picture

This dispute highlights the ongoing debate about the role of creative writers in professional wrestling and the value of in-ring experience.

By the numbers:

• WCW folded in 2001 after 13 years of operation
• Russo worked for WCW from October 1999 to January 2000, and again from April to October 2000

The bottom line

Bully Ray’s comments reflect a growing pushback against Russo’s claims, emphasizing the importance of respect for in-ring performers in the wrestling industry.
