Is Vince Russo working with Impact Wrestling again?
Rumors are circulating on social media, not officially on the dirt sheets, that former WWE, WCW, and TNA writer Vince Russo is once again working with Impact Wrestling at least as a consultant.
This thought was brought back to light on Thursday when Twitter user @SoDuTw pointed out that people within Impact are avoiding the question. But why was the question brought up in the first place?
Most/all major Wrestling journalists are aware of the rumour/speculation that Russo is back. No one can get confirmation.
Deonna and the Slammiversary free agent teases is IMPACT swinging for the fences to get noticed.

Some have been quick to ask because of recent booking decisions. Since the pandemic started, it’s no secret that Impact has made a few moves that have fans doing a double-take.
The Knockouts division has seen a resurgence, and the stage has almost been set for a revitalization of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship. There’s also the five-way Slammiversary main event booking, plus the teases of former WWE stars showing up at the big pay-per-view next month.
Is this just Impact hitting their stride? Or is someone like Vince Russo assisting in the process? Even Louis Dangoor and Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp have stated they asked the same questions with lack of answers.
I’ve reached out to several Impact talent about this, and can get no one to confirm that Russo is back. https://t.co/AlCkuzYsDk

True that there's a big rumor about it. Nobody in Impact would confirm, or even say they're in the know about it https://t.co/ev7ZnZvJiS

We’ll continue to follow the story as the days go on, but rest assured that anything is possible in the world of professional wrestling.
