Current Ring Of Honor (ROH), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), and former WWE star Cody Rhodes is getting set to put on a massive indy event in Chicago this summer.
Rhodes is self-funding a wrestling show he calls "All In" along with other big-name indy stars such as The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega in Chicago Illinois. The event is set to go down on September 1st from the Sears Centre Arena.
Many wrestling legends and big names have been either rumored or confirmed for the show. While some of the biggest names in indy wrestling are set to appear, CM Punk has been rumored to be at the event in some fashion as well.
The event is in Punk's hometown of Chicago, Illinois and he is also set to do a meet and greet event in Chicago the day before All In.
With all the hype surrounding this event, many wrestling legends have attempted to get involved in the madness. It seems that one of those legends is none other than former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo.
For those who may not know, Russo is largely credited for the success WWE saw in the Attitude Era when he wrote some of the best storylines in the company's history.
With that being said, he has also written some of the worst and is a highly controversial figure in the business.
Russo took to twitter to note that he'd be interested in appearing at All In. He recently took to Twitter to let it be known that he's ready, willing and able; but also notes some people are trying to prevent him from attending:
The event's frontman, Cody Rhodes, took to Twitter and warned the wrestling legend to stay away from his event:
Russo has wanted to be involved with All In for quite some time. He offered his services to Rhodes and The Young Bucks via Twitter back in March and seemed very excited about the possibility. It should be interesting to see how this all plays out.
What are your thoughts on Russo being blackballed from the All In event? Do you think that this could be a bit of kayfabe between Rhodes and Russo? Or does Rhodes and his fellow indy stars really want Russo to stay away from their Chicago event? Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below!
