He doesn’t believe Vince Russo belongs and expressed this in the “Snake Pit” podcast when asked whether his time as the WWE head writer should be given an honorary induction.

“Okay, next question,” Roberts responded with a laugh. “F**k no … My dead dog had better ideas than he did.”

Russo began his career at WWE as freelance writer for WWF Magazine in 1992. After his promotion to Editor, Russo became part of the creative team of WWE in 1996.

The move coincided with “WCW Nitro” regularly defeating “WWE Raw” in the Monday night ratings battle. Russo’s appointment was a factor in the beginning of the Attitude Era and storylines such as the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin-Vince McMahon rivalry.

He was eventually promoted to the head writer, before resigning along with fellow creative teammate Ed Ferrara to WCW in 1999 following a disagreement with WWE’s then Chairman McMahon.

Russo quit WWE after turning the tide of the war for ratings, but Russo along with Ferrara could not stop the decline of WCW. The company was ultimately bought by McMahon and WWE in 2001.

Russo would later compose for the TNA Impact Wrestling. Russo recently claimed that he could not stay for all day working for WWE at the moment.
