Speaking about Amore’s Cruiserweight Title win, Meltzer and Alvarez says that this basically kills the Cruiserweight division. Russo says that Amore is the only interesting thing that has happened to 205 Live since it started. He also points out that the third hour of RAW dropped 500,000 viewers this week and if Amore wasn’t in that final segment, Russo believes double that amount of people would have turned off the show.
Russo also wonders why Triple H is so high on someone like Finn Balor, when they seem determined to bury Enzo Amore. He assumes WWE thinks Balor’s look is going to draw in a female demographic but there’s never any women in the audience. Russo suggests that perhaps Triple H is attracted Balor.
This week’s final clip presents Keller discussing the most common sense way to write professional wrestling. He says it’s obvious to him that wrestling shows booked around great fights that matter will always be successful. Russo says that the mainstream audience doesn’t care about fake fights, and this theory wouldn’t draw a dime.
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
