Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – WWE’s Inability to Change, Why RAW Should be 1 Hour, Would NXT Beat RAW in Ratings? More!
Russo says that WWE’s inability to adjust and keep up with the times has always been a big problem for them. He points out that they’re constantly behind the curve because viewership habits in 2018 are drastically different than in years past. He also notes that the same people are making all the decisions in WWE, and they all live within the ‘”wrestling bubble”. That’s why they’re always behind the curve.
Russo says his biggest issue with WWE is they don’t try new things. Sure, they’re making money, but they’re the only game in town so they better be making money in his opinion. He wonders how much money they’d be making if they changed with the times and put out a good product.
Vito points out that Russo tried a bunch of new things when he was head of creative during the attitude era. Although Russo fields some criticism now for a handful of the decisions he made back then, a whole bunch of new viewers were tuning in each week during that era to see what would happen on RAW.
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!
