• WWF Jobber Has A Message For Current WWE Wrestlers Who Aren’t Happy With Their Spot
During a recent appearance on WINCLY podcast, Old School WWF Jobber Barry Horowitz talked about the WWE Women’s Division, WWE Hall of Fame & more.
Below are the highlights:
On WWE’s women’s division:
“The girls’ division is great and they never used to wrestle like that. I’m not being biased but they’re probably being trained by men because of the moves they’re doing.”
On how Wrestling should be presented:
“You gotta go with the times and I think the perfect formula is wrestling with entertainment. You can’t be totally wrestling or be totally entertainment because they’ll change the channel. People want to be entertained in a different way, not in a carnival way.”
On WWE Hall of Fame:
“It’s pretty entertaining and cool. But I think only wrestlers should be in there and yes, I do think I should be in there. Without a doubt. I won’t mention names but there are people in there who can’t lace my boots and don’t know a wristlock from a wristwatch. Then there’s people in there not even in pro wrestling or ever even worked for Vince. So it’s kinda like a slight to me. Like really?”
On current WWE wrestlers that aren’t happy with their spot:
“You got a spot – you have a job. You can ‘dumb’ yourself out of a job and then where are you gonna go? The independents or Japan? But you’re never gonna work for the likes of WWE – it’s just too powerful. That’s just the way it goes. It’s the wrestling business – take it or leave it.”
