Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane, Kenny Bolin and Big Vito.
After watching RAW and Smackdown Live this week, it’s evident to Russo that WWE doesn’t care about their shows anymore. He says WWE’s programming is all ‘shit’ and they show zero signs of pride in their work.
Bolin points out how dead the two crowds were in Manchester, England this past week, and he says that’s a terrible sign because WWE only goes to England twice per year. The England crowds were always loud and rambunctious but they were the complete opposite of that this week.
Russo says that people often claim that he invented the ‘on a pole’ match, but those matches have been around for decades. Speaking about the ‘guitar on a pole match’ between Jason Jordan and Elias, Russo wonders what kind of a pole match ends without a 3-count. Bolin says whoever booked that clearly didn’t give a damn.
Vito says that Jason Jordan and Elias simply couldn’t work together because there was no chemistry there. He also says that WWE has buried Elias by destroying his entire gimmick since his guitar was broken over his own back.
