@kokepepsi, I agree but that's Punk's smartass annoying character, always trying to talk and talk and talk, take the first promo on RAW, always trying to sound cool and just don't shuts his mouth even when others are talking, you have sympathy for a guy who acts like this? I don't think so.
I agree on the punk thing

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

I would love to see Russo working with Vince again, I got my favorite time as a wrestling fan under that team, besides that, I always loved Russo's style with the skits. Russo also knows how to create a character and I agree with his mindset about wrestling matches on TV and their effect on ratings if it's just random.

Holy shit.

Any argument you've ever had against being a massive troll is destroyed with this post.

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

Yeah I know, you can't praise Russo on the internet. The guy is delusional and he was horrendous in WCW, but I give him credit for his work in the WWF. What I also like about his interviews is every time he talks about how he brought the Nitro ratings from 2.6 to 3.5 in a few months lol, of course everybody knows that this is bullshit but it's funny how he believes in that.

No actually he is right. Russo + Vince = Success. Proven formula.

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

Russo had both good and bad creativity, and Vince was there to filter out those bad ideas that Russo suggested. The good ones were great, but the bad ones were just horrendous. Just look at his time in WCW when he had complete creative control. The guy fucked the entire company up.

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

While we're at it, why not bring back D-Lo, Scotty, Rikishi, Godfather, Steven Richards, Kurgan, Hardcore Holly, Perry Saturn, Al Snow, Steve Blackman, Ken Shamrock, Val Venis and Road Dogg? If we're gonna live in the past, might as well go full force.

And honestly how can anyone think Russo still has any ability to create these days? Guy is a fucking mess.

There's a pretty big difference between bringing back a writer and a 45 year old washed up wrestler.

I'm sure you wouldn't complain if they brought back Paul Heyman.

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

If Russo wasn't given complete control over the product and doesn't have the final say then I dunno what's the harm in it. Would be better, less insulting and more entertaining than what we have now
