Russo is joined on today’s show by former OVW wrestler Bin Hamin, former ECW & WWE Superstar Stevie Richards, and his co-host, Jeff Lane. They will discuss this week’s episodes of RAW and Smackdown Live.
Russo says the one highlight of WWE’s 5 hours of programming this week was Jason Jordan’s performance. Russo feels that Jordan is taking the “steaming pile of crap” that the creative team is giving him, and he’s somehow finding a way to make it entertaining.
Richards points out that there are rumours circulating online that Vince McMahon knew fans would react negatively to the way Jordan was being booked, and that was WWE’s plan all along. These rumours are complete “bull” in Russo’s opinion, and Richards agrees. Hamin points out that it’s easy to claim you knew how fans were going to react to something in hindsight.
Richards doesn’t understand where the heat is supposed to be for Jordan as a heel. Was he supposed to get heat for celebrating a victory on RAW? If so, that’s foolish because he should be celebrating victories in Richards’ opinion. Richards still has no idea what Rollins was thinking during Jordan’s match on RAW because he was a cheerleader one minute, and looking angered or dissapointed the next. Russo agrees, saying he has no idea what story WWE is supposed to be telling here.
