As noted earlier, Vince Russo was backstage at the Lucha Underground television taping this past weekend. There have been some rumors floating around regarding Russo possibly working for the company, but all signs are pointing to this not being the case.
Lucha Underground held a meeting with top officials to discuss Russo’s appearance and they flat out denied that Russo would be hired. A few veterans in the locker room were leery, but it was made clear Russo won’t be writing for Lucha Underground.
Russo himself claimed he was only in attendance to check out the show and interview a few people for his podcast, but some people felt Russo seemed like he was looking for work.
Russo was reportedly treated well at the show, but he’s not very familiar with lucha libre. He apparently made a suggestion that the show needs more female wrestlers, which did not go over well.
