– During the latest edition of Vince Russo’s Nuclear Heat (via wrestlinginc.com), he spoke about Brock Lesnar laying out Roman Reigns on Raw and more. Here are the highlights…
On WWE Putting So Much Effort Into Putting Over Roman Reigns: “Steam on Reigns, build Reigns. They forgot about the whole roster, because they were concentrated on getting Reigns over. They were doing a good job. I didn’t like them ignoring the rest of the roster, but they did a good job of getting Reigns over,” Russo said.
On Lensnar Laying Our Reigns Last Week: “What is the first thing Lesnar does? He drops Roman Reigns with an F5. One guy, dead in the middle of the ring. You built him for weeks, and you don’t have him at the level where Brock Lesnar can drop him with an F5, because Brock Lesnar is already over. Some people are going to cheer Lesnar doing that.”
On The NJPW Guys (Styles, Anderson, Gallows and Nakamura) Getting Over in WWE: “They [WWE] can’t get guys on their own roster over. You think these guys from New Japan are going to walk in and be over? You can’t get over on wrestling matches alone. Some of the greatest ring technicians in the business never got over, because they were missing the character.”
