Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Jeff Lane, Stevie Richards and Bin Hamin.
Russo opens today’s show by pointing out that a lot of people compare him to Bruce Prichard and Eric Bischoff but he doesn’t think he’s the same as those men at all. He points out that they’re still involved with WWE in one way or another and he’s not. He adds that he wouldn’t be able to work with WWE in any capacity without going straight to Vince McMahon and telling him how crap the product is.
Getting into their thoughts on RAW, Hamin mentions that Braun Strowman and Kevin Owens had a good opening match. Russo gives Hamin and Richards credit for actually watching for the details in these matches because he’s so far passed that. What he noticed here was a match between Strowman and Owens where we knew who was going to win before the match even started, and then it took 27 minutes for it to end. He wonders why WWE wasted people’s time with this.
Russo mentions that the Bobby Lashley video package/sit down interview was one of the things he liked the most during RAW. He says that he’ll take that any day of the week over some meaningless match, and he doesn’t understand why WWE didn’t do this for Lashley sooner. Lane, on the other hand, didn’t really understand the interview which focused on Lashley’s sisters.
