"Again, I've got to tell you, Wade, I want to make one thing perfectly clear, to this day, Vince McMahon wasn't just my boss. The relationship was much much closer than that. I'll say to this day that I love Vince McMahon and I love his family. Vince McMahon really did give me the opportunity to put me in the position that I'm in today. One thing about me why I think I've been successful in this job and you know the history of the bookers and what not, one of the reasons I think I've been successful is because I don't think I have an ego. I'm not a talent. I don't want to be a talent. I don't want to get in front of the camera. I pretty much do what I do. Basically, when it came to who was getting credit for what, I really didn't care that Vince McMahon was the genius and Vince McMahon was getting all of the credit because all I cared about was pay me. I'm doing a job, I'm getting my paycheck, and I'm happy."
Vince Russo, 10/5/99 Torch interview
