In this exclusive interview, Vince Russo “Fans the Flame” as he and his former writing partner Ed Ferrara get into a discussion regarding NXT. For the record, the two former writing partners and friends of almost 20 years have a clear difference of opinion when it comes to the WWE proving grounds. Ed, who works at Full Sail University and is more into the in-ring wrestling aspect of the product, sees great promise with the organization. On the other hand, Vince who thrives on the entertainment aspect of wrestling, just doesn’t “see it.” They discuss:
* Ferrara on why NXT is better than RAW
* If people are fans of NXT because “the bar has been lowered”
* Russo on NXT talent looking like regular guys
* Ferrara on Finn Balor being a star
* The Ascension comparing themselves to The Road Warriors and Demolition
* Ferrara on fans caring more for ring work than larger-than-life characters
* Why NXT stars aren’t moving the needle when moving to the main rosterand more!
