Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo opens today’s show speaking about the missed dropkick spot at the recent Ring of Honor show which featured The Young Bucks. Russo was vocal about his disapproval of this spot but he wasn’t trying to talk crap or looking to start fights, he just feels that we need to start calling these type of things something other than ‘professional wrestling’.
Lane mentions that on one of his shows this past week, The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer was perplexed over people being on their phones while sitting ringside at wrestling shows. Russo says he doesn’t blame these people for being on their phones at all because they’re obviously bored out of their minds.
Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet mentioned this past week that the Hype Bros were more deserving of a main card spot at Clash of Champions than the Triple Threat US Title match. Russo calls Satin a jackass, and mentions that Satin probably hates Baron Corbin because he was a football player and a legitimate athlete, and Satin can’t relate to that.
At another point last week, Meltzer said that RAW has probably been losing viewers in the last hour because of long matches which feature talents who aren’t over. Russo says that nobody’s over on RAW right now, so who are WWE going to put in the ring?
