• “Now Lashley is an idiot” – Vince Russo Points Out The Flaw In Bobby Lashley’s Loss To Big E
In the main event of this week’s RAW, Bobby Lashley defeated RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship.
After the match, Lashley attacked Riddle and slammed Orton through the announce table.
During this assault, Lashley hurt his leg (kayfabe, storyline injury), and then Big E came out to cash-in his Money In The Bank contract and won the WWE Championship.
Former WWF Writer Vince Russo wasn’t impressed with how Lashley didn’t focus on Big E as soon as he defeated Orton, since Big E said multiple times during the show that he’s going to cash-in.
Here’s what Russo said on Legion of RAW podcast:
“That’s the flaw in the writing right there because now Lashley is an idiot. Big E made it clear, ‘I am cashing in the suitcase.’ So as soon as Lashley gets the win in the ‘real world,’ he is waiting for Big E.
Bro, here’s the picture that they tried to paint that didn’t work for me. ‘Oh! Lashley’s anger got away from him. He wasn’t thinking clearly. He blew up and then went after Orton and then went after Riddle.’
No, bro. Big E told us a million times, ‘I am cashing in, I am cashing in, I am cashing in’. You got the 1, 2, 3 now you are facing the entrance. The fact that you went after Riddle and went after Orton, no bro it wasn’t your temper, now you are an idiot. Now you are an imbecile because the guy told you 18 times that I am cashing in the case.
So, that’s the flaw in the story right there.”
