• Former WWE Wrestler Reveals What He Learned From Triple H & Shawn Michaels
During a recent interview with ESPN, former WWE wrestler Kenny (of the Spirit Squad) talked about Vince McMahon coming up with Spirit Squad idea, learning a lot by working with DX & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Vince McMahon coming up with Spirit Squad idea:
“Vince turned and said, ‘Guys, this is my idea. It’s gonna work because I’m telling you it will work. He said, ‘I want cheerleaders. Male cheerleaders. There’s nothing that gets more heat than male cheerleaders.’ I kinda looked at the other guys out of the corner of my eye like, ‘Is this a joke? This is a good joke. You guys went all the way out to get Vince in on this?'”
On learning a lot by working with DX:
“It was amazing. I remember we would always joke around when we first started working with DX, ‘I wanna take the superkick – let me take the superkick.’ Secretly we’re all fans. Of course we’re going to be fans of Shawn Michaels and Triple H, so we’d trade off. It was fun. Just learning so much in there – how to slow down, how to tell a story, and also, too, what I learned a lot from Shawn and Hunter was how to work a main event.”
On being coached by Killer Kowalski at the age of 13:
“When I got there, Kowalski said, ‘Come back in five years when you’re 18, kid. Get out of here. And I was like, ‘Mr. Kowalski, you don’t understand, if you teach me now, when I’m 18, I’ll have five years of experience and then WWE might be interested.’ I remember he just looked at me like, ‘That’s an interesting thought.'”
• Rumor Killer On Vince McMahon Being Sick Of Rusev Day Gimmick
There’s a rumor going on that Vince McMahon is sick of the “Rusev Day” gimmick, similar to how he’s sick of the Tye Dillinger’s “10” gimmick. However, DirtySheets.Net has killed this rumor.
This wasn’t true as Rusev is among the top merchandise sellers in WWE with his new “Rusev Day” gimmick and WWE expects him to be a big merchandise seller during the WrestleMania 34 week as well.
Other the other hand, Tye Dillinger’s “10” merchandise never did great. So Rusev’s gimmick is making Vince a lot of money and the rumors of Vince being sick with Rusev’s gimmick aren’t true.
