Vince Russo was a writer for WWE during the attitude era. Since he left the company to become the head writer for WCW his claims about his contributions to the success of WWE have become almost legendary. He has taken credit for the Montreal screw job for the popularity of The Rock and Steve Austin, and WWE overtaking WCW in the Monday night war ratings.
His most recent comments have provided comedy gold for a lot of people in the business including one Jim Cornette upon hearing Vince claim that he emailed Vince McMahon out of the goodness of his heart to come in and save the company from declining ratings.
According to people inside the business, Vince Russo emails McMahon on a weekly basis not offering his services, but begging for a job. Listen to Jim Cornette give his take on those claims.
