Former WWE head writer Vince Russo was unhappy with this week's edition of Monday Night RAW as he recently shared his thoughts about the program.

The flagship show emanated from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky, this week. It featured several top stars of the red brand, including Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Matt Riddle, The Miz, and AJ Styles. The night's main event featured Rollins defending the United States Championship against Finn Balor.

While reviewing the show on Legion of RAW, Russo said the episode did not showcase any compelling storylines. He detailed that most of the matches on the card were made up backstage for ridiculous reasons, and there was no depth to the angles playing out on TV.

"There's nothing to critique. We can't critique storylines when there aren't any. We're talking about basic fundamentals. Guys making matches on the spot. Guys making a match because you slapped my bongo, guys making a match because I lost a poker game. We're talking about ridiculousness. We're not critiquing bro. There's nothing to critique, nothing."
