Russo is joined on today’s show by Kenny ‘Starmaker’ Bolin and his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo says he always gives credit where credit is due and The Shield’s reunion has been done very well by WWE. He points out that they got a big pop when they reunited on RAW this week and although it’s smart of WWE to give the fans what they want in this case, one part of Russo was wishing for Ambrose and Rollins to turn on Reigns when they were standing at the top of the ramp early in this show.
Bolin points out that opening an episode of RAW with Sheamus is something that he’d avoid at all costs. He says he’s never been a fan of Sheamus and he often turns off the television when Sheamus comes on but apparently Sheamus is ‘Triple H’s boy’, and evidently that’s enough to keep you on WWE programming for a long period of time.
Russo says he had RAW on in the background on Monday and when he looked up he saw Enzo Amore in the ring. For the first time in forever he actually rewinded RAW in order to hear Amore’s promo. In regards to the lumberjack match, Russo says it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to have the heel outnumbered by a dozen babyface lumberjacks on the outside of the ring.
