Speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, Vince Russo recalled the time when he had called Sable to pitch the offer of joining TNA/IMPACT as an on-screen authority figure. It was Brock Lesnar, Sable’s husband, who picked up the call before passing the phone to his wife. However, Vince was not aware of who he spoke to first.
Brock Lesnar is one of the deadliest and most dominant superstars of all time. He has the power of a bull and is fondly known as the man who ended the Undertaker’s iconic WrestleMania streak. He is also a 7-time WWE Champion and a 3-time WWE Universal Champion.
Then TNA wrestler Kurt Angle later told him that it was Lesnar and he wanted to kill the former WWE head writer.
“I get a call from Kurt Angle,” Russo said. “And Kurt said to me, ‘Vince, what did you do?’ And I’m like, ‘Kurt, what are you talking about what did you do?’ ‘What did you say to Brock Lesnar?’ I’m like, ‘What?’ He goes, ‘Vince, this guy wants to kill you. You call him to speak to Rena [Sable’s real name], you don’t introduce yourself to him, you don’t have a conversation with him, and he says you totally disrespected him and now he wants to kill you.'”
