Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo starts today’s show by making a significant statement. After watching RAW and Smackdown Live this week Russo was actually impressed with the majority of what WWE did, and he thinks they might actually be turning a corner creatively.
Getting into RAW, Russo says that he enjoyed the first segment between Lesnar & Strowman, in spite of the fact that Heyman cut another promo that sounded exactly like every other promo he has ever cut. However, in a three hour show Russo felt that Lesnar needed to be shown backstage throughout the show looking for revenge on Strowman.
Russo was saddened by the freak injury to Big Cass on RAW. He says that this was a complete accident, and Big Cass has probably executed that spot a thousand times in his career with no issue whatsoever. Russo points out that the timing of this injury is terrible for Cass, but hopefully WWE picks up right where they left off with his push when he gets back.
