Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Jeff Lane, and former WWE Superstars, Stevie Richards and Bin Hamin.
Richards says he couldn’t understand Ronda Rousey’s debut at the Royal Rumble this past Sunday. Rousey shook Stephanie McMahon’s hand at ringside, but the last time they saw each other on WWE programming Rousey put McMahon in an arm bar. He mentions that some people are saying Rousey’s ready to be a full-time talent, but he thought she looked lost in the ring on Sunday, looking like she didn’t have a clue what to do.
Russo has a hard time believing that Asuka and Nakamura are the two performers that WWE wants to push as their top stars right now. He points out that neither of them can cut a promo, and he agrees with Lane in the sense that adding subtitles for their promos would be an improvement. He also suggests that a hot female translator would be a nice addition to Nakamura’s presentation, to accompany his rockstar gimmick.
Russo says he’d rather see Braun Strowman destroying things for 20 minutes to start RAW instead of a 20-minute match, but he’s also starting to get tired of Strowman flipping stuff over. He points out that turning over a desk is somewhat anticlimactic after Strowman flipped over an 18-wheeler just a couple of weeks ago.
