8. Ricky Steamboat Talks About Current WWE Wrestlers Not Being Able To Tell A Story In The Ring
During a recent interview with ESPN, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat talked about training wrestlers, current WWE wrestlers failing to tell a story in the ring & more. Below are the highlights:
On training today’s wrestlers, teaching basic moves and techniques:
“A lot of the young guys today can do a bunch of fantastic stuff, but I find that they are not connecting the dots. It’s not much of storytelling. They are out there just doing stuff to fill in the blanks, just doing stuff to do stuff. I would like them to be able to tell a story so the fans could actually follow the match along.”
On Shane McMahon’s elbow drop off of the Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania 32:
“How long did they let that moment breathe? What that means is you’ve got to let the fans realize what they just saw. And they may play it back and re-enact it in their minds a half a dozen times. ‘Oh, I can’t believe it!
Did you see how far he fell?’ Big moments, you’ve got to let it soak in. It actually adds to the drama so you don’t throw away the move and the moment.”
