Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Origins of WWE’s 1998 “NWA” Angle, Matt Hardy Staying Relevant, Sami Zayn an ‘Incredible’ Heel? More!
Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
On one of his radio shows last week Bryan Alvarez from Wrestling Observer was adamant in thinking that the current angle with Kenny Omega is going to make Chris Jericho a bigger star than anything he could have done in WWE. Jericho apparently said this himself as an explanation for why he did this match.
Russo points out that Jericho and Alvarez are right in this case because nobody is watching Monday Night RAW. In Russo’s opinion, this was Jericho’s way of saying “Nobody’s watching WWE” without getting in trouble with Vince McMahon and other WWE officials.
At another point this week Alvarez tweeted out that Sami Zayn is an incredible heel. Russo says that Alvarez clearly hasn’t seen a good heel before because Jake Roberts was an incredible heel. Contrarily, Zayn is a cab driver look-alike that comes off like Woody Allen. Russo says that Alvarez needs to get his head out of his ass.
Russo says that incredible heels should give kids nightmares and they should always be a credible threat to win matches. In Russo’s opinion, Zayn can’t accomplish either of those things right now.
