Vince Russo heavily criticized WWE for “firing” RAW Superstar Bobby Lashley following this week’s episode of RAW.
On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Lashley faced off against Seth Rollins in a singles match. Despite fighting from under throughout the match, The Visionary managed to beat the former The All Mighty following a devastating Pedigree.
After the match, Lashley attacked the referee, taking him out. He was “fired” by WWE official Adam Pearce instantly.
Speaking on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s ‘Legion of RAW’ podcast, Russo detailed why Lashley was taken off live TV, blasting the company for having no plans for the superstar. He said,
“A couple of months ago, they were gonna get time off. All the talent was gonna get time off like a vacation, and they were gonna take turns. Do you know why they did that? Because that’s what they use as a clutch when they don’t know what to do with somebody. I guarantee you, they did this with Lashley. Lashley’s gonna be off for a while Chris, because they don’t have a clue as to what to do with him.”
“I’m telling you as a television writer, okay? If you have a star on your show, bro, there’s no vacation. And not only that, if you are a star, you don’t want a vacation. You don’t want time off. So, I’m watching this and I’m like, ‘why would they take Lashley off of TV?’ Because they don’t have anything, they don’t know what to do with him. So let him sit at home for 2 weeks.”
