Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Lane plays a clip of Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez talking about a Title Belt being on the line between Mayweather & McGregor. Meltzer says that was simply preposterous, and Alvarez agreed saying it was silly for a Title to be on the line in that fight. Russo points out that these guys think it’s silly when a belt is on the line in a real fight, but they spend their days talking about fake Titles which are on the line during fake fights.
Lane says that Dave Shearer went on record last week saying if Brock Lesnar wants to fight for UFC again WWE should sever ties with him. There’s also no way he’d let Lesnar wear the Universal Title to a UFC event. He says that WWE let him fight for UFC once and it was a mistake, so he wouldn’t let it happen again.
Russo says that these marks look at wrestling as a shoot and not as a business. Russo says McMahon would be an idiot to refuse to let Lesnar wear the Universal Title to a UFC event, where millions of people will be watching.
