Former WWE Head Writer Vince Russo has spoken out on why he believes the company have no intentions to create any new stars akin to The Rock or John Cena.
Speaking to the It’s My House Podcast, Vince Russo had this to say on the matter:
“A couple of years ago Ryback – and this comes from Ryback and I think Ryback is as straight a shooter as you can get – Triple H told Ryback there isn’t going to be another John Cena. In other words, what he’s saying is no talent is going to be bigger than the WWE ever again because what happens is when you have a talent that becomes bigger than the WWE – going back to control, he (Vince McMahon) loses that control. He lost control with Cena, Austin, Rock, Hogan, he loses that control. So now, Triple H is flat out saying, there’s never ever going to be another superstar bigger than the company again. So what do they do bro? They have a factory, where they’re making wrestlers. And these guys they go in from the independent circuit and they’re going through this factory. And what they’re becoming are replaceable talents. So okay this guy does something we don’t like, does something on social media, doesn’t get a gimmick over, you’ve got 1000 reasons to get him out and bring the next guy in. They’re purposely not doing it. That’s why you’re seeing the 50/50 booking, win one week lose one week win one week, they’re purposely holding guys back so nobody’s value becomes bigger than the companies.”
