Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Who Cares if Strowman & Reigns Take A Picture? Finn Balor is Far From Great, Graves Can’t Shine Booker T’s Boots, More!
Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo opens todays show speaking about Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin, who tweeted out last week, “It’s official, Strowman is a hugger!” to a screenshot of Strowman applying a bearhug to Roman Reigns. Russo says this is a outrageous tweet from someone who considers himself a ‘wrestling journalist’, and it’s just another example of why he keeps calling these guys ‘marks’.
He says that there are significant differences between wrestling fans and ‘marks’. Russo loves wrestling fans who watch and enjoy the product, but ‘marks’ take their fandom to borderline obsessive levels. He says that if you’re upset about Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns taking a picture together in Rome, (as some people were last week) there’s no denying that you’re a mark.
While highlighting a picture of Finn Balor, Seth Rollins and The Miz, Satin also tweeted out, “Name a more iconic trio, I’ll wait”. Russo says that statement would be a stretch even for this era, but calling these three guys the most iconic trio of all time is ludicrous.
