CORNETTE VS. RUSSO
“So not only will I come to you, not only will I meet you in a neutral location with no cops, no guns, no knives — just the two of us. But I’m gonna have $5,000 in cash with me because I got that Vince unlike you. You don’t have to bring anything. You don’t even have to bring a ham sandwich. I’m gonna have $5,000 in cash with me and you can have it if you can take it away from me”
“But I’m making you a legitimate offer. I swear on my mother’s grave if you give me a date, a time, and an address I will meet you there and I will bring five grand in cash. As long as the rules are no cops, no guns, and no knives and what happens, happens!”
“Jim, I apologize. And I apologize for a lot of things,”
“First and foremost, I want to apologize for you blowing out your knees when you fell off that scaffold because you are a mark who didn’t know how to take a bump. I want to apologize Jim for you putting Smoky Mountain Wrestling out of business. I want to apologize Jim for you being fired from Ring of Honor for a public emotional outburst. I want to apologize Jim for being fired from WWE for assaulting another employee. I want to apologize Jim because I’m from New York. I want to apologize Jim because in my entire life I was never fixin’ to do anything. I want to apologize Jim that I don’t believe the Dukes of Hazard is a reality show.
“I’d like to apologize that I never went on national television and dressed like the village idiot,” Russo continued. “I want to apologize that I never asked a wrestler to chew on an Alka-Seltzer so it would appear like he’s foaming at the mouth. I want to apologize that even the great Terry Funk didn’t get over when you had him come out of a box.
“But Jim, perhaps the two most important things,” Russo said. “I want to apologize for setting ratings records at both the WWE and TNA and also raising the ratings at WCW the whole nine months that I was there. I sincerely apologize for that. And last but not least, Jim, from the bottom of my heart, I apologize for both Dixie Carter and Vincent Kennedy McMahon for choosing me over you. Because at the end of the day, 18 years later, that is what this is all about.
“It sticks in your craw because no matter what you do, no matter what you say, no matter what asinine promo you cut, it does not go away. From a creative standpoint, the numbers clearly dictate I was better than you,” Russo determined. “And I know that is hard for you to accept and I know that is hard for you to deal with so that is why from the bottom of my heart, I apologize, I am sorry, and I hope from this point on we can move forward.”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/cornette-vs-russo/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Cornette-vs-Russo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Cornette-vs-Russo-150x64.pngNewsWrestling News
