During the latest episode of the Pancakes & Powerslams podcast, wrestling legend, Bobby Fulton gave his honest thoughts on Roman Reigns and modern wrestling. Below are some highlights of the interview with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the quotes.
Thoughts on Roman Reigns:
“If he can’t get over as a babyface and the people are booing him, fire him! Get rid of him or turn him heel. He’s not getting the job done. It is plain and simple! They gotta make a change somewhere. People just ain’t buying Roman Reigns.”
Modern wrestling being similar to the territory days:
“Actually, it is not like the territory days. The way I see it, there is a large under-current of backyard wrestling that is hurting professional wrestling. Anyone that uses the term “independent” to me, I wouldn’t use it. That’s already a step down. We’re all supposed to be professional wrestlers. We had 4 or 5 hour car rides with the older generation. Those were our classrooms. What you have now is guys who might have 4 or 5 lessons from somebody and then they open up a wrestling school and they don’t really know what they’re doing. It is a long stretch of not good quality. There’s the WWE, there’s Ring of Honor, there’s Impact Wrestling. There’s a small string of good promoters out there. But, there are a lot of people that shouldn’t be in the wrestling business.”
“We’re talking about a career and things that happened 30 years ago. 30 years from now, what will they be talking about? They’re not even talking about what is going on in wrestling now! They talk about John Cena and his “Make a Wish”. They never talk about his wrestling! I think that’s great, I think that’s wonderful. But, at the same time, what have you done for the wrestling business?”
