That Time Vince Russo Booed Me On Twitter, So I Bribed Him With ‘The Following’

Do you remember Vic Venom? I didn’t either, until recently. A 1997 WWF Monday Night Raw rebroadcast on the WWE Network still had that glorious, late 90s, attitude-cutaway style WWF Magazine advertisement intact.

  It doesn’t take much to upset the internet these days. Batista returning? Anger. Bray Wyatt Losing? Frustration. John Cena’s whole existence? Disgust.

It wasn’t a matter of if the hometown Chicago crowd was going to steal the show, but when. Luckily, WWE’s creative team was smart enough to recognize this, and they attacked the CM Punk issue head-on.
