Among the talking heads in WWE’s nWo: The Revolution DVD and Blu-ray video title, scheduled for release tomorrow in the United States, is former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vince Russo. He was the creative mind behind the group’s reformation in late 1999.
Russo’s involvement with the video release is the first time in ten years both he and WWE have worked together. After leaving the sports-entertainment organization in 1999 for WCW, he was rehired in 2002 to aid WWE’s creative process. However, he quickly left on his own accord, and explained during a later interview, “No way in the world that this thing would work out…I felt there were layers upon layers of people to go through to get my ideas accepted.”
Another talking head of note is former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Lex Luger, who notably battled the nefarious group before becoming a member himself.
