Re: Would anybody want Vince Russo back as booker?
Not that Vince Russo is by any means a good booker, although during the AE he did have his occasional moments of genius. To reiterate what the OP said, there's a distinct absence of story-lines in the mid-card, to the point where they're non-existent. Which is all well and good if you've got a strong caliber main event scene, but the WWE is lacking in all areas.
They need someone who can develop the under-card talent, with multi-dimensional characters and slow burning plots that last over 4 weeks. Whether Russo is right for the job is questionable, but anything is certainly better than the current crop of writers. With RAW at 3 hours long, and about 5 other television shows throughout the week, I can't believe they can't do this already.
