Vince Russo isn’t happy with the way Mickie James was used during her return to in-ring competition on Monday’s RAW and he took to Twitter to vent.
Russo called out head RAW & SmackDown creative team writer Bruce Prichard and said he intentionally misused James to “punish” her after her husband, Nick Aldis, was critical of Prichard. During an interview last month, Aldis said the following of Prichard:
“[He] hasn’t been paying attention to anything that’s been going on” in the wrestling industry over the past few years and attributed that to RAW’s extremely low ratings. He said,
“It just shows that he hasn’t been paying attention, kind of like when he was running TNA, he wasn’t paying attention, he was asleep.”
.@WWE CREATIVE(Cousin Brucie) Clearly misusing a legend like @MickieJames because her husband publically stated what we all already knew about him—would be the equivalent of punishing your 5 year-old daughter for blowing off her bedtime—because she was waiting up to see Santa.
