In a recent episode of "Legion of RAW," former WWE head writer Vince Russo expressed his concerns over WWE's promotional tactics, particularly regarding the Creed Brothers, Julius and Brutus. His comments come in the wake of the latest RAW episode, where the duo made notable appearances, seemingly being pushed into the limelight by the company.
During the show, Julius and Brutus intervened to help R-Truth, who was under attack by The Judgment Day. Later, in a high-stakes main event featuring Cody Rhodes against Shinsuke Nakamura, the Creed Brothers again stepped in.
This time, they saved Rhodes from further harm following an unexpected red mist attack from Nakamura.
Russo Challenges WWE Tactics
Russo, known for his straightforward critiques, questioned the rationale behind these interventions, especially given the lack of a storyline connection between the Creed Brothers and Rhodes.
He argued that while their involvement in the R-Truth segment was justifiable due to a pre-existing narrative with The Judgment Day, their appearance in Rhodes' match was unexplained and felt forced. "They're shoving the Creed Brothers down your throat.
That's exactly what they're doing," Russo remarked. He emphasized the absence of any storyline link between the Creed Brothers and Cody Rhodes, suggesting that WWE's strategy was overly aggressive in promoting the emerging tag team.
The upcoming RAW episode is creating a buzz in the WWE universe, as it features a significant match involving the Creed Brothers. They are set to face The Judgment Day's Finn Balor and Damian Priest, a duo renowned for their in-ring prowess.
This much-anticipated showdown isn't just another match – it's a battle for the prestigious Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship, elevating its importance and adding an extra layer of excitement for fans eagerly awaiting this clash of titans.
Russo's comments have sparked discussions among fans and analysts about WWE's promotional strategies. With the Creed Brothers' rising profile and their upcoming title match, it remains to be seen how WWE will navigate their storyline and whether the audience will respond favorably to the company's approach.
