Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane, Big Vito and Kenny Bolin.
Russo says WWE proved how dumb they are right at the beginning of RAW this week when the commentators made it known that all the doors to the arena were locked and security was surrounding the building. Russo says this made the RAW Superstars look like ‘pussies’ when in reality, the RAW Superstars should have been furious and should have been begging the Smackdown Live roster to come back so they could get their revenge from last week.
Vito says he liked that Stephanie McMahon opened the show because that was a ratings draw. Russo completely disagrees saying that Stephanie obviously didn’t pop the ratings because this week’s ratings were lower than last week’s. He also says that he hate’s Stephanie’s character because she’s one dimensional and she constantly buries talents without allowing the talents to have a comeback.
Bolin says it was great to see Samoa Joe return on this show, and he’s a big fan of Joe. Before Joe got to WWE Bolin was unaware how great he was at cutting promos, so that has been a pleasant surprise since he started in NXT. He also says that WWE has something great in Joe if they allow him to be the Joe from ROH. Russo says that’s all fine and dandy but Joe needs to stop wearing ‘clown shorts’.
