Vince Russo comments on Escape The Undertaker
Vince Russo believes Escape the entrepreneur allows for “huge” viewing for kids, but he doesn’t think adults will be entertained by the Netflix special.
Although he understands the attraction of Escape the entrepreneur for younger WWE fans, the 60-year-old personally didn’t like watching the Halloween-themed production.
“I started looking at it like, ‘Okay brother, I’m a 12 year old kid watching this.’ It was 100 percent for the kids. Brother, come on, if you’re one of those bearded 24 year olds watching this … come on, brother. But Halloween is coming, if you’re 12 years old, the 14 years old… that’s why. And if that’s the audience they were looking for, my brother, I thought that was great. For you and me? No, my brother, absolutely not, but it was not for you and me, ”Russo said.

Vince Russo’s experience watching Escape The Undertaker
Escape the entrepreneur follows Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods on their urn hunt for The Undertaker inside the legendary superstar’s haunted mansion. Throughout the episode, viewers can dictate the rest of the story by choosing from a variety of multiple choice options.
Although the film’s runtime is 31 minutes, it can last longer if viewers select options that delay their way to the ballot box. Vince Russo joked that he tried to respond strategically in order to end the interactive experience as quickly as possible.
“I mean, bro, I’m trying to pick them out and I’m really trying to guess, I swear, ‘Okay, which one is shorter? I kept leaving, like, ‘Leave the room! Leave the house!’ I kept on leaving and then my brother I’m leaving to leave parts and I laughed out loud because I was like, “Okay brother, I’m leaving now, let’s get out of here” and The Undertaker says, “Do you think you were going to be able to leave that fast? I’m like ‘Oh, bro, I was hoping I was!’ Russo said.
