The lack of originality of the WWE product is one of the reasons for the decline in ratings in recent years. The outbreak of the global pandemic has dealt another blow to Vince McMahon and his associates, so much so that it has forced the federation to release a large number of talent in the past year and a half.
The simultaneous explosion of All Elite Wrestling jeopardized WWE’s supremacy, as Tony Khan’s company managed to sign two bona fide giants like CM Punk and Bryan Danielson. In the 'war' of ratings, the AEW has taken over in the demographic ranging from 18 to 49 years.
Among the experts, many believe that - without an adequate change of gear - the Stamford-based company is destined to collapse in a short time. During the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo explained that Vince McMahon should have the courage to apologize to fans.
“Vince McMahon should show some courage and apologize to all members of the WWE Universe. It wouldn't be such a sensational gesture. Many years ago, when he was about to start the 'Attitude Era', Vince made a major promo.
On that occasion, the WWE boss said the company would offer viewers a more fun and thrilling product than the 1970s style. We are more or less in the same situation. Vince is very embarrassed, even though he tries hard not to notice it.
I'm sorry to be so tough, but WWE seems to be run by a bunch of idiots” - said Vince Russo.
Vince Russo takes a shot at Vince McMahon
A judgment on the latest episode of Raw could not be missing from Vince Russo: "There were three hours of show, but we only talk about the assault of the fan on Seth Rollins.
Everything else was of no importance in the eyes of the people. I don't know if Rollins is trying to play the Joker. However, the Joker has a psycho facet that you need to be able to convey on screen. If you can't, he just looks like an idiot with a fake laugh."
Former nWo member and WWE performer, Virgil has sent a message to Vince McMahon. At the end of the tweet, Virgil included that he's glad that the company has finally come to its senses: "Breaking news: I have just released Vince McMahon from his duties.
Effective immediately I will be once again overseeing all talent and decision making. Glad that the company has come to their senses." - wrote Virgil.
