Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com revealed on Tuesday that he was accidentally copied on an email by Vince Russo revealing instructions/advice for TNA’s commentary team of Mike Tenay and Taz. Russo had previously avoided addressing if was working with TNA in a consulting role after reports had surfaced believing he had been.

Below is Russo’s statement issued on his website Pyroandballyhoo.com.

“Recently, I accidentally sent an e-mail to a third-party that was not meant for their eyes. The e-mail concerned my current involvement with TNA Wrestling.

TNA rendered my services as a consultant to work with their announce team of Mike Tenay and Taz. The condition from their side was that I kept it confidential between the two parties. As their employee, it was up to me to honor their wishes, so that’s what I intended to do.

My integrity means everything to me, so I just hope you can understand and forgive.
