• Former WWF Writer Calls Vince McMahon ‘Desperate’ For ‘Riding’ Cody Rhodes
This week’s RAW kicked off with an in-ring promo segment between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.
Rollins said he has a mystery opponent for Cody for the main event of RAW, which turned out to be Kevin Owens. Cody defeated Owens via count-out.
On SK Wrestling’s Legion Of RAW, former WWF Writer Vince Russo expressed his displeasure towards Vince McMahon relying so much on Cody.
Below is what Russo said:
“Vince is so desperate, he’s going so against the grain of what he would be doing and he’s riding Cody Rhodes, which I can’t believe.
When I say ‘riding Cody Rhodes’, bro, when you’ve got Cody Rhodes opening the show with a 15-minute segment, when you’ve got Cody Rhodes in the main event and is not losing, he’s riding Cody Rhodes.
Cody Rhodes is not going to draw a fan other than those that are already watching. It is what it is, but I was very concerned about, ‘Okay, where do we go after ‘Mania. What have you got in the pipeline?’ And this is it, I guess.”
