Former WWE creative writer, Vince Russo, has appeared on the WrestlingINC podcast. During the show, Russo elaborated on how he believes that WWE has dropped the ball with the current WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal’s main event push.
Russo: “What a mishandling of Jinder Mahal three weeks as the champion and they killed it. They dropped the ball, it’s horrendous what they did to this poor guy in the last three weeks. This is what they do with all these guys, Raj; everybody just becomes another name on the roster. If you go back and you look at the Attitude Era show, every single show was built around who the champion was and that championship and that title, every show was built around that. That’s the most important thing on the show.”
“Yesterday, three weeks after winning the title, this guy was handled just like another wrestler on the show. Bro, the announcers couldn’t have no-sold it any-more. When Shane announced [Jinder Mahal] had a match with Mojo, the freaking announcers no-sold it, this is your freaking champion.”
