During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Vince Russo revealed that he has no recollection of Jim Cornette confronting him over the Brawl For All concept. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m not gonna call Jim Cornette a liar, but his story about confronting me after Dr. Death got knocked out, bro, I don’t remember one second of that conversation. I don’t remember Cornette approaching me, I don’t remember Cornette saying the things he claimed to say. So I’m the kind of person that I’ll say, OK, you know what, I’m not quick to call anybody a liar, so maybe I forgot, maybe that actually did happen and I forgot, because the bottomline is, if I sit here and say, ya know what Jim, with all due respect, I don’t remember that at all, what am I doing, Dave? I’m turning that into World War 3. Cornette tells this story, I didn’t say about that on the show because I’m not going to waste the next three weeks arguing with Jim Cornette about whether or not he said that to me after Dr. Death lost that match. I do not remember one single word of that conversation ever taking place.
