Vince Russo – ‘Stephanie’s Appointment To Creative Was Vince McMahon’s Biggest Mistake’



Appointing Stephanie McMahon as head of WWE’s writing team was an awful decision by Vince McMahon, according to ex-writer Vince Russo.

The younger McMahon was brought on board as the head of creative in November 2000, just over a year after Russo departed the WWF for WCW.

On a recent edition of the “Legion of RAW” podcast, Russo didn’t hold back in his views on Stephanie becoming head of creative. He said,

“Stephanie took over creative when I left and I knew that was the biggest mistake Vince McMahon could possibly make because, first of all, I spent a lot of time with Stephanie and I never saw a creative side to her. I saw her business side, brilliant. I never saw her creative side.”

While Russo is no fan of Stephanie’s tenure as head writer, she would oversee the build to the much-acclaimed WrestleMania 17 pay-per-view event in April 2001.

Stephanie was promoted to Senior Vice President of Creative Writing in 2006 before becoming Executive Vice President of Creative in 2007.
