Russo went the road of Triple H in terms of taking me offguard with likeability as he opened up a Twitter account, @pyroballyhoo. It is a surprisingly essential follow. Nothing suggests that Russo has learned from his mistakes or became some kind of booking maven. Then again, who wants to follow a goddamn former industry know-it-all anyway? Jim Ross may be the greatest announcer ever, but his Twitter account suuuuucks.
Russo embraces his manic personality, and he does so with self-deprecation. Nothing's out of bounds, and he's at least cognizant of both current WWE and TNA. He also answers a whole lot of tweets sent his way. I can forgive a lot of ills if you interact with people who are thirsty for your thoughts in good faith. Sure, I still think a lot of his influence on wrestling is negative, and I won't go out of my way to praise his work, but the guy right now seems to be in a good place.
