"I think Vince
is a creative genius. I think Vince Russo is organized. Most creative,
smart people arenít organized. Theyíre scatterbrained. They have the big
picture, but they donít know how to get things done. Vinny knew how to
get characters over. He knew how to make people care about what was going
on. He knew how to tell a story. He just wasnít schooled in the wrestling
aspect of all of what I just said. Itís like Iíve said to other people,

goes in cycles. We started a down time, Ted got out of power and boy, things
went to hell in a handbasket in a hurry."
the Natural Born Thrillers:
say, ĎThose guys werenít ready.í Well, where are they going to get ready?
