Vince Russo takes a shot at Raw

The effects of the global pandemic and the sudden rise of All Elite Wrestling have certainly not helped WWE, which has seen its ratings plummet over the past few months. The Stamford-based federation has been forced to release more than 50 superstars due to COVID, including top names like Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt.

As if this were not enough, Tony Khan's company has strengthened by engaging two absolute phenomena of the caliber of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan (now Bryan Danielson). WWE is preparing to host Crown Jewel, the highly anticipated event that will take place in Saudi Arabia this Thursday.

Among the most electrifying matches on the card is certainly the one between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, without forgetting the rematch between Goldberg and Bobby Lashley. During the last edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo analyzed the main flaws in the company's programming.

From his point of view, WWE should better capitalize on the reduced attention span of TV viewers.

Vince Russo slams Raw

"The world has changed compared to when I worked in WWE, the needs of the public are totally different nowadays.

I try to explain the concept to you through a real example. My wife and I sat on the sofa to watch the latest episode of Raw together. In the first 10-15 minutes of the show, absolutely nothing happened, so she asked me to change the channel.

The attention threshold of television viewers is very limited, you cannot let all that time pass unnecessarily” - explained Vince Russo. Vince Russo then mentioned the storyline between Goldberg and Bobby Lashley: “Their feud never took off, they've been doing the same thing for the whole last month.

It is not a problem of writers or ratings, it is a question of the system. We are talking about a mechanism that has been broken for years and years, it needs to be fixed. There is no real script, on the contrary, they seem to have no idea what to propose until the day of the show itself."

Jinder got control of the match early on and hit a big boot in before taking an elbow strike from Woods. Xavier got some big kicks in and laid Jinder out with a dropkick before The Modern Day Maharaja took him out with a back suplex.

Jinder locked in the Cobra Clutch but Woods fought out of it. Jinder hit a side slam before Woods tried to go up top and fought Veer and Shanky off but dived straight into the Khallas.
