Former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently called out RAW announcer Kevin Patrick for a low-energy performance on commentary.

Kevin Patrick was one of the backstage interviewers for WWE. He recently joined the RAW announcement team alongside Corey Graves. He also serves as the co-host for the weekly podcast After the Bell.

On the latest Legion of RAW, Russo was irate with Patrick for not showing energy during the opening of the show. He recalled how Jim Ross would passionately start the show with his commentary, which also got the fans excited for the episode.

"This guy, I don't even know his name. Whatever, Dana Patrick? I don't even know his name. This guy opens up the show with such low, boring energy. This is why I'm so tired of the excuses. What's the excuse that this guy can't be excited about opening up this show? [From 5:53- 6:27]

Russo detailed that JR would call the action with so much excitement and enthusiasm that it also prompted fans to tune in every week.

"I'm begging anybody, anybody, go watch a show from the Attitude Era and listen to JR open a show. He is so excited, so over the top. He wouldn't rather be anywhere else in the world. We don't know what we're gonna see tonight." [From 5:28 - 5:50]
