Vince Russo denies story of talks with Lucha Underground

Earlier this week, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reported that Vince Russo was in talks to join El Rey’s Lucha Underground and had meetings with executive producer Eric Van Wagenen.

On his website, Russo completely denied this, saying that Meltzer is either “an an absolute liar, just looking to stir up his readers by attempting to marry my name with Lucha, so the haters can come out and take their free cheap shots at me, or, one of Meltzer’s ‘reliable sources’ is lying to him.”

Russo claims that he never heard of Van Wagenen’s name before – a producer who worked on The Amazing Race, The Contender, WWE Tough Enough, The Apprentice, WWE Legends House, and others. Russo also wanted a retraction of the story from Meltzer.
