Longtime wrestling personality Vince Russo, recently opened up on working with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.

During his interview with SmarkBusters, Russo was asked about his experiences while working for McMahon. The former WWE writer was also asked about staying in the wrestling bubble at all times, while working with the Chairman. Russo told listeners:

"When you're working for Vince [McMahon] you have to be. He demands that. He owns your life, 24X7, and that's fine. I bought into that but unfortunately, this is where he's not smart about it - while he's owning your life, he's also burning you out. You see now, if that's me and and I'm the owner of the company and I'm depending on somebody as much as he's depending on me, I am going to make sure that person has some breaks, that person has time to rest their batteries... I'm going to make sure because I want longevity from that person but with Vince, it was non-stop, 24X7, for five straight years and at the end of that, I was completely done.”
