10. WWE Hall of Famer Gives An Advice To Roman Reigns
During a recent appearance on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco discussed WWE’s New Era, New Era WWE Stars in the Old Era, Steve Austin’s advice for his son, Roman Reigns & more. Below are the highlights:
Could current WWE Superstars be successful in the previous generations of wrestling?
“I tell that to guys now. There are guys in this era right here and now that could get over back in mine and there are guys in mine that could definitely get over in this one here. It’s not the gimmick. It’s not the storyline because our storyline’s are simple and it not that a lot of individuals didn’t have a lot of gimmicks but it’s the person behind it. It is that person that works his ass off every night in the ring and stays consistent and stays true to himself. Stone Cold Steve Austin and my son Wes have become very good friends and Stone Cold’s advice to Wes every time he talks to him is be yourself. Stay true to yourself and I couldn’t say it any better but coming from Stone Cold to Wes means a hell of a lot more than me telling my son the same thing.”
How can Roman Reigns benefit from that advice:
“If he just stays himself and doesn’t change (the people are going to hate him and the people are going to love him) but look at John Cena. He is one of the most revered guys but in the beginning people loved and then hated and still they love / hate him, but he is still one of the most revered guys there is.
Stay true to yourself and don’t get off course and don’t let people talk you into changing, don’t let the fans convince you that you need to change. Just be yourself and pretty soon they will see this is who you are. That is my advice to these young guys and if you believe in something than make it yours and make it work.”
