Earlier, we wrote about some of the comments made by Road Warrior Animal on his podcast where he implied that women should not be in the main event. Lynch has responded and you can read her response by clicking here.
There was much more covered in the podcast and it's sure to anger some of the current main roster stars. Others may just brush it off an old timer still having the old school wrestler mindset.
On Becky Lynch:
I would let her back off of ‘The Man’ thing and let her just be a pure white meat babyface that doesn’t quit. Those are the kind of babyfaces that work. When you come out there with the attitude and strutting your stuff like she’s some kind of tough guy, come on! Jesus, Lord, anybody that’s ever been in a fight can see right through it and I’m just being realistic because that’s what works in this business. You’ve got to think shoot and work the shoot and right now they’re not taking advantage of their stars who are stars.
On the recent angle with Natalya that involved her late father Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart:
This thing with The Anvil is not out of respect. You don’t go out there and trash his picture. You don’t go out there and trash the jacket. You don’t go out there and break his sunglasses. You don’t go out there and take advantage of someone’s death to create an angle. I don’t believe in that. I think that’s hitting below the belt and no different than when Hawk had substance abuse problems and they had him do that drunk thing when he fell off the Titantron. That was hitting below the belt. It’s too close to home. You could have done it different ways with Natalya dedicating stuff to her father without having to try to tarnish his name a little bit.
Animal was also negative on the who notion that WWE is going to improve the product. He said that the McMahon's will make the rules and nothing is going to change.
Animal also ripped on Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose at the TLC pay-per-view. He talked about how fans were chanting "this is boring" and said, "To me, as a performer, there was nobody stepping up a gear. When there was time to get heat there was no stepping up the gear and being real deviant and getting heat. It was just moves after moves trading moves. Seth Rollins [was] doing the same thing; run and dive out the ring, go around the corner and the ring post, come in and dive out the ring again. It’s the same crap all the time. Every match has the same crap…..you see the same repetition thing in their match."
Animal went on to say that he never had fans chant "this is boring" during one of his matches.
