Vince Russo discussed in an interview on the latest edition of Busted Open Radio how not a single person in WWE expressed any concern to him about wrestlers getting injured in the Brawl for All.
Here is what he had to say:
“The injuries, I am telling you, I don’t know conversations that took place that I was not privy to. I can tell you, the creative team of myself and Ed Ferrera, nobody, nobody prior to this, not one single person, brought up the risk of injuries. Not one, bro. Now there could have been conversations between Ross and Vince, and Vince and Prichard, I don’t know, I am just talking about my behalf, not one person said, ‘Hey Vince, have you ever thought that people could get hurt in this?’ Because Bubba if you wanna know the truth, I didn’t! I didn’t, bro. I wasn’t thinking in a three round content, that pro athletes, top notch blue chip athletes, would be getting hurt at the rate that they did. I was not thinking that. I’m admitting to that. But I’m also telling you, nobody said that to us. Not one person.”
