"Ratings have not improved at the rate anyone from Russo to Eric Bischoff to Brad Siegel had hoped. Russo is upset with Standards and Practices stunting his creativity, including bleeping innocuous words and vetoing angle ideas. There were themes from the 'Deliverance' movie that Russo wanted to incorporate into Thunder this week, but many of the ideas were vetoed by S&P. That, among other factors, has led to tension. Bischoff and Russo are also butting heads over issues now, most specifically the Elizabeth/Lex Luger and Dallas Page/Kimberly situations. Bischoff wants to bring Kimberly, Elizabeth, and Luger back; Russo doesn't want them back under any circumstances and considers the pressure to bring them back undermining the stands of principle he took."
