Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Lane opens today’s show by playing a clip of Dave Meltzer who says he can’t believe that TNA had Okada for a year or two and didn’t push him at all. Meltzer said that will go down as one of the greatest punch lines of all time. Russo says that Samoa Joe actually came up to him during their time working together in TNA, and told him that Okada was very entertaining and TNA needed to take advantage of him.
Another clip of Meltzer presents him saying that Vince McMahon was trying to prove how tough he was by taking that headbutt from Kevin Owens on Smackdown Live last week, but Meltzer feels that at some points McMahon needs to grow up and realize the business is a work. Russo says that Meltzer is the last person who should be telling someone else to grow up.
Russo says that McMahon takes these kinds of shots because of his ego, to prove to himself and others that he can still do these things at age 72. Russo says that McMahon isn’t a mark and he knows that the business is a work, but Meltzer on the other hand is peeing his pants over some indie show.
