– During a recent edition of “The Brand” podcast, Vince Russo, along with OVW Veteran Kenny Bolin, discussed last week’s episode of Raw (which featured Enzo Amore vs. Kalisto for the Cruiserweight Championship in a Lumberjack match). Below is their conversation:
Russo: I’m having a conversation with somebody and Enzo comes on the screen and he starts cutting his promo. So, finally I finish up with the person. Jeff guess what I did? I hit rewind. I think it was the first time in the history of Raw that I ever wanted to hear what Enzo had to say. I wanted to hear the Enzo freakin’ promo. I can’t even tell you the last time I did that bro where I actually cared enough to hear somebody’s promo. I’m talking about the one in the ring.
Kenny let me ask you a question. It’s basic babyface-heel philosophy, okay? Obviously, Enzo is the heel in this 205 division. Kenny, when you got a heel and all of a sudden you put him in a match for his Championship against the babyface. And now the ring is surrounded by babyfaces. Who’s the babyface now? It’s one on ten and Enzo’s the heel in a one on ten situation?
Let me ask you this, I’m sure you had a lot of a lot of Lumberjack matches in OVW. This is the first time that I ever saw a Lumberjack match where they let the fans be the Lumberjacks.
Kenny: More or less. Now, here’s the other thing. This is also the match where I couldn’t name one of the Lumberjacks. I couldn’t name one.
