Former WCW and ECW wrestler Scott Riggs talked with The Undisputed Wrestling Show . He spoke about Hulk Hogan, John Cena, WWE Network and more. Check out some of the highlights down below:
On Hulk Hogan Returning To The WWE: “Hulk Hogan, even at his age, still has the ‘It Factor’. The crowd loves the nostalgia that he brings. It’s the same old thing, over and over again, but the fans still dig that. It still captures their childhood imagination.”
On The WWE Network: “I’m one of those guys that I rarely ever watch my old matches. The only thing I think would be really good about WWE Network is finding stuff that fans don’t know that used to be wrestling like is different than what WWE is giving them now. If WWE gives them what USWA used to be, what World Class used to be, what Florida Championship Wrestling was, if what wrestling really was in the ’70s, ’80s, I think it would be good because it will teach fans what wrestling was. It could hurt them (WWE) because fans can say I like ‘wrestling’ not ‘sports entertainment’ stuff.”
On John Cena: “Every single match is the same, and it is sickening. Five simple moves every match. When it is time for Cena’s comeback it is the same moves, boom, boom, boom. That does not suspend any disbelief. That is what wrestlers are supposed to do, have the craft to anywhere in the match a finish can come up.
“Cena has mixed himself with the Super Cena thing, which is what Vince McMahon has a hard on for, he is a good guy that is so good that it is sickening. That is why so many people don’t like him. Cena is WWE’s cash cow. When I am watching Cena I feel like I am watching a TV commercial. Everything he is doing, he is selling cereal, he is selling t-shirts, he is selling something in everything he does.”
He also talked about Randy Orton, WCW, WWF, Dennis Rodman and much more.
