The last episode of Monday Night Raw ended with the victory of Natalya and Tamina, good at defending their tag team belts from the assault of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. Reginald was in the front row and unleashed Baszler's ire when he distracted the referee, preventing Shayna herself from completing her roll-up against Natalya.
The former NXT female champion went on a rampage, telling Reginald to leave that station and head backstage. Her distraction, however, proved fatal to her, having allowed Natalya to turn the tide of the dispute and win the entire stake.
Speaking in the classic weekly Sportskeeda event, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo harshly criticized the red show's main event. “First of all, we must take into account that it was the most important match of the evening.
People have very high expectations for the last segment of the show. I must say that the meeting was too sloppy. I usually don't like getting into technical issues, as I'm not a wrestler, but in this case, I just can't help it.
I would be lying if I denied having witnessed a sloppy show, which did not convey any kind of emotion. I didn't even really understand what the message WWE wanted to convey to fans was. So many confusing situations that left a bitter taste in the mouth of the spectators," said Vince Russo.
Vince Russo slams Monday Night Raw
Vince Russo was asked if he would consider returning to WWE. “First of all, I want to say that it is not a question of money. I am 60 years old now, have been married for a long time and have grown-up children.
It would depend a lot on the project and the ideas they would propose to me. I'm sorry to admit that no one really cares about professional wrestling in 2021. Tony Khan and the others brag about their million followers. It makes me laugh thinking about what it once was”.
Riddle, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston have been allies for a while now on Raw. There was even a funny backstage segment (posted online only) where the New Day members ate his cookies. Last week, Randy Orton faced Kofi Kingston in a less intense renewal of their 2019 rivalry, and the result didn't change.
This time, however, Kofi Kingston needed a bit of a distraction from Xavier Woods to make it happen. It was a bit of a fluke, but the result stood. What was surprising, however, was post-match - when Riddle shoved Xavier Woods down following their celebration.
