WWE: Vince Russo hates on Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens

Published 2 Comments

It seems that no matter how hard wrestling fans try to get away from the man, Vince Russo is still trying to keep himself active in wrestling in some way, shape or form.

Fans were recently subjected to the rhetoric of Russo after the Sami Zayn Raw debut. His venom went as far as to say that Sami Zayn was not capable of becoming a star. Well unfortunately, there is more to be heard or read.

On Wednesday, chairshotreality.com released another Vince Russo adaptation of what he believes wrestling should be about. Lest we forget that Vince Russo is cut from the same mold as your Vince McMahon types that believe wholeheartedly that all wrestlers that wrestle professionally should, first and foremost, be bodybuilding yes mams and lastly, should all be from, and live in, the late 1980’s and early to late 1990’s.

Russo's view 

In this latest instalment of Vince Russo’s slap in the face to the ever changing, ever evolving sport of professional wrestling entertainment, he clearly states that Sami Zayn’s debut on Raw was “presented as just another wrestler,” and “…in a year nobody will remember that debut.”

Russo also states that The Ascension’s debut was “so laughable you almost have to think it was intentional,” which was followed by Adrian Neville who apparently will be forgotten after a big move from the top rope. He then violated Kevin Owen’s debut, saying he was “a guy who looked like he just came from Gleason’s Gym, where he was training to be a ‘rassler.’

"Owens didn’t look like a star, he didn’t smell like a star, as a matter of fact he looked like a guy that could have jumped the guardrail," Russo added, before then going on a tangent which included remembering Hillbilly Jim for some reason.

Russo goes mental

Here is an excerpt of what Russo said:

“Save your hate mail. This isn’t a Kevin Owens thing, just like it wasn’t a Sami Zayn thing, just like it wasn’t a Adrian Neville thing, just like it wasn’t an Ascension thing. Those guys are strictly employees who get paid to do what the boss says to go out and do—that boss is Vince McMahon. Somewhere along the line, shortly after the Attitude Era (what a coincidence), Vince McMahon forgot how to make stars.

"He forgot how to create them, how to manufacture them, and how to get them over. When you think about it, who has gotten over to SUPER stardom in the last fifteen years? I’m talking household names? In my opinion that list is quite small, as a matter of fact I’d put two people on it - Kurt Angle and John Cena. OK, I’ll even allow you to put the beloved Daniel Bryan on there if you wish - but his success had NOTHING to do with creative, other than being given the platform to perform."

Vince Russo certainly had a rant but, he did, in some weird way, compliment their abilities but in a backhanded way. Share your thoughts below. What do you think?
