• Top NXT Star Says WWE Wrestlers Aren’t Entertaining – Vince McMahon Isn’t The Problem
NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream shared an interesting message in his Instagram stories where he blamed the wrestlers for the lacklustre WWE product and not Vince McMahon.
Below is what Velveteen Dream wrote:
“Is it fair to critique Vince? I mean after all WWE is a form of entertainment. You do know WWE is a TV show?
Right?!?! WWE is a TV show put on cable and Network TV. By who you ask? Answer: Vince McMahon
Evil Boss (On Screen) & Director of his TV show’s (Off Screen)
Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, etc…
George Lucas directed Star Wars. Vince McMahon directs Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live and he’s directed everything else you’ve watched from WWE over the last 40 years.
Point is: When TV sucks it’s because of the actors and entertainers and stunt men FAILED to entertain you.
Vince can write ALL DAY it’s your ‘favorites’ that have to make it entertaining.
Star Wars was great in the 90’s too! The new ones suck because the new actors SUCK. And yes this is still a WWE thread.”
