Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – RAW & Smackdown Analysis, Killing Absolution’s Heat, Moving Owens & Zayn to NXT? More!
Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo informs that he worked on the debut Aro Lucha show this past weekend and he calls it the greatest experience he’s had in the wrestling business. He hates having to leave his house to travel for wrestling shows or conventions, but this show didn’t feel like work to him for one minute.
By all accounts everyone who attended this show had a great time and the reviews online have been great. Unfortunately some dirt sheet writers still had some criticisms, and Russo simply doesn’t understand why they’d want to tear down the show after the promoters spent a lot of time and effort guaranteeing that their debut show would be a hit.
Lane assumes that these dirt sheet writers criticized the show because Russo was involved and these people love to bash anything that Russo’s involved with. Russo admits that this might be true but if it is, that’s a very sad situation.
Moving into his thoughts about this week’s episodes of RAW and Smackdown Live, Russo says that WWE’s two flagship shows have basically become televised house shows at this point. Lane agrees and thinks that the last three weeks of programming have been particularly poor.
