Vince Russo recently opened up about his thoughts on Edge's promo on RAW and how WWE has booked his return to the ring.
Former WWE writer Vince Russo discussed Edge's announcement return on the latest edition of SK Wrestling's Legion of RAW hosted by Dr. Chris Featherstone. Speaking about the Edge announcement, Russo was baffled as to why Edge is not continuing his feud with Randy Orton which had to take a backseat after Edge's injury last year. Russo felt that Edge should have been held off for a feud with Randy Orton instead of entering the Royal Rumble. You can check out what Vince Russo had to say below:
That's my issue. That's what I thought. So why's he going into the Royal Rumble. The issue should be with Orton. It's not okay. What about the story with Orton? What about Orton? I realized that right away. I wasn't sure but now that I know that [Edge lost to Orton], so why aren't you coming back after it?
