After severely injuring Brian Kendrick with the ‘GTS’ last week, Richards feels that Hideo Itami is completely careless in the ring. He says that Itami seemed nice enough when he met in person, but he’d never trust Itami with his body. Richards has friends who worked with Itami in Japan, and Itami was known as a dangerous worker there at that time.
Russo feels that something is terribly wrong in the wrestling business when Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are in the main event storyline on Smackdown Live. Richards has worked with Owens in the past and feels that he could be a huge star if WWE allowed him to act and speak freely. However, he agrees with Russo in the sense that Zayn is a mid-card talent at best.
Hamin jokes that WWE must have hit the ‘random’ button on a video game in order to determine the brackets for he U.S. Title tournament. Russo agrees and can’t understand how Aiden English gets a shot at the Title when Rusev doesn’t.
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
