Hard as it may be for long-time fans to believe, this month marks 25 years since Vince Russo first emerged as a presence in pro wrestling.

We haven’t heard from race-baiting troll and New York Post sports columnist Phil Mushnick in a while. He had a Colin Kaepernick take this evening. It will absolutely not surprise you.
