Wouldn't mind Russo back if he took the direction to work on midcard/tag team storylines. Only problem is we got little quality TV matches back then but then again we haven't had too many lately either.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

I've been wanting Russo to come back for months. Russo came back in '02 but was demoted to a consultant and subsequently fired because apparently of a storyline he came up with. So, I don't know if he and the company are in good terms or not.

Vince Russo is a monumental horse's ass. The hottest times in WWF weren't under Russo, he killed WCW (60 million lost in 9 months), didn't do shit for TNA and wrote some of the worst garbage during his tenure there.

3 months of Russo would have you pining for Dunn and Gerwitz.

At least he'd have a filter in WWE. He can be a fucking moron but with filters he was solid before.

His WCW and TNA runs were complete garbage though.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

You think there is a filter? 5 separate guys with squash match angles and not a single one is over. Think about it. When you look at this writing do you think only the best of the best is selected or what?

As long as he is filtered then he could try WWE again just to see how he does.

Meaning what? He hasn't been around good wrestling writing in like 15 years? He's a passe buffoon.

Paul Heyman would probably do a good job, but I don't think he would write for WWE. Tough job I hear.

Guh, just read some of the stuff from Russo's shoot last night and he claims it sickens him that people claim he needs a filter and that he loved Arquette as champion and most of his on a pole matches.

And he compared his work in '99 to Shakespeare.

Anything would be better than WWE today so it doesn't matter anyway. Russo in WWE did a great job and can do it again.

He's talking about WWF 99? because that's really a masterpiece. Best TV year of all time.
