Bully Ray continues to be outspoken about the state of pro wrestling these days but not in a bitter way but rather someone who is coming from a viewpoint to help the business.
While doing a recent interview with Wrestling INC, he discussed the lack of real heels in wrestling today and how to help those stars portraying a bad guy further get over with fans.
This is something that the WWE Hall of Famer knows all to well as he has been a great heel throughout his time in the world of pro wrestling in order to build a successful career.
“A good heel elicits no emotions of joy from a wrestling crowd. A real heel is despised. A real heel is hated. A real heel does nothing that brings any happiness to anybody at any given time. And I really, truly believe that, and it’s a very old-school mentality when it comes to the heel that I am. In wrestling today, you have a lot of bad guys; there’s some bad guys, there’s some bad girls, but there’s no real heels. I talk about real heels, and I think even a better definition of what I do is I believe I’m the last of the ‘old-school’ heels.”
Ray continued by stating, “New-school heels are good from time to time, but they tend to be a little bit more entertaining, and I don’t think that my heels should ever be entertaining first. If being entertaining is a by-product of what you’re doing, you can’t control that, because some people just root for the bad guys, and you can’t help that. I try to do my best to make sure that everybody hates me, and in-turn, if everybody hates me, that means they love the good guy that I’m in there with. That’s my job, and a lot of people don’t stick to their job nowadays.”
