Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
A listener calls into the show and mentions that he’s a big fan of Rusev and loves the way the Bulgarian Brute works in the ring. Russo agrees with the caller and says that Rusev has the whole package in his mind, and he should be much further up on the card. Russo thinks that Rusev must have pissed somebody off backstage to be relegated to the role he has right now.
The caller also points out that there’s a significant shortage of good talkers in WWE today. Russo agrees with this point as well, adding that if a talent is struggling with promos they fail to improve as time goes by. He says that there are a few good talkers there but those performers were always good talkers. He thinks WWE is lacking a backstage Producer who can help performers who are struggling with promos get better.
Another listener calls into the show and informs that he previously served in the United States military. Russo thanks the caller for his service, and points out that it’s because of people like this caller, that he strongly disagrees with the recent protests by NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem. Russo adds that he has no problem with the idea of protesting, he just doesn’t like it involving the Anthem.
