Vince Russo should come back....as a manager
Serious thought, why not? If you paired him with someone who maybe lacks for mic skills or could do with a manager(maybe Roman Reigns post shield, or Ryback perhaps? Or just someone new) I definetely think it would work and here's why.
1 - He can draw natural heat just because he is Vince Russo from sections of the crowd
2 - Him being him can draw natural heat as well, a brash noo yawker, thinks he knows everything etc. As an on air character I always felt he was underrated
3 - Of all the people who should know how to cut a good promo, surely its the ex booker? 2 of the best managers in recent years - Dutch Mantel (Zeb Coulter) and Paul Heyman are former bookers. They spent years being very good at telling people how to cut promos, so it normally follows on that they would be good themselves
4 - Russo being there - makes the product more believable. Some people have legitimately hated Russo or at least been at loggerheads, that always makes great TV, like when Steph slapped Heyman people bought that it was a real thing
D Lo Brown -
On any given night in 2000 there were 10, 12 million people watching Nitro and Raw. In 2005 there's been 2 1/2 million. So where did 9 1/2 million people go? They didn't just die. They turned the channel.
