The current WWE Championship picture on RAW looks to feature AJ Styles challenging Drew McIntyre for the title. For Friday Night Smackdown, Kevin Owens is scheduled to take on Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title.
Former WWE writer Vince Russo certainly needs no introductions as he remains as a controversial figure in professional wrestling to this date. He was recently a guest on the latest episode of Legion of RAW hosted by Chris Featherstone.
During the show, Vince Russo discussed the current top feuds for both RAW and Smackdown, revealing a huge flaw made by WWE Creative in the process.
Comparing the two feuds, Russo mentioned that the endings for both are quite obvious, which was not the case for the great feuds of the older days of pro wrestling.
“Here’s what it comes down to. Let’s take a look at both shows. Is Kevin Owens really going to go over Roman Reigns? I don’t think so. Is Sheamus, 15 years into his WWE run – after he loses to Matt Riddle and to Jeff Hardy – is he really going to go over Drew McIntyre? No, I don’t think so. So what are we watching for? What are we watching for? I mean, that’s the thing.”
“I can look back on so many feuds when you didn’t now. I had a house full of people, how are they going to book this Hogan vs Andre The Giant match? I had 30 people in my freaking house. You didn’t know. Did anybody know how they were going to book Hogan and Warrior? You didn’t know. Bro, every single one of these, give me a freaking break. Let me tell you about thunderous, okay? Chris, I was in Madison Square Garden the very first time Hogan wrestled Savage in the Garden. Chris, the rafters were shaking. Sold out. People hanging from the rafters. Bro, the garden was shaking. You’re going to shake the ThunderDome with Sheamus and freaking McIntyre? You couldn’t shake my living room with Sheamus and McIntyre.”
Perhaps several fans would agree with Russo’s opinion as WWE Creative has a penchant for leaving a lot to be desired when it comes to their booking decisions.
