• Attitude Era Veteran Says “Wrestling Has Changed” Line Is An Excuse For Lazy Psychology
During an appearance on the Steve Austin Show podcast, Attitude Era Veteran Al Snow gave his views on the wrestling style nowadays and why the “Wrestling Has Changed” line is bullsh*t.
Below is what Al said:
“The style now is dictated by WWE. Everybody kind of now adopts and follows that style. Psychologically, everybody is making the same mistake and that is they’ve gotten so far away from the very simple concept of what we are actually selling.
Everybody gives you the old, ‘oh, wrestling has changed’ line and I couldn’t disagree more because that’s bullsh*t. Excuse me. But because they tell you it changed, and they use it as an excuse or justification for lazy psychology or lackadaisical work. They think ‘working’ is your physical ability or athletic ability when that has nothing to do with it.
Give the audience what they paid to believe, which is that it’s a real competition, that the outcome has gravity to it, that the guys are prizefighters no different than a boxer or an MMA fighter in that they actually try to win, not just put on a physical performance. And the wrestlers worldwide have gotten so far away from that concept that makes you wonder.
‘Oh, the business has changed. Well, if it changed and it’s just about the physical performance, why do we have referees and why do we still have championship matches? It just doesn’t make sense! Why do the wrestlers themselves get upset? If it’s just about your physical performance, why do you care if you lose? I mean, they’ll get pi$$ed and Austin knows that!”
