Former WCW booker and wrestler Kevin Sullivan was recently a guest on The Interactive Wrestling Radio Show where he discussed a number of topics. Among them, he talked about how Roman Reigns’ booking is similar to Hulk Hogan’s booking when he was in WCW:
Sullivan believes that it doesn’t matter if Roman is getting a positive or a negative reaction as long as he is getting one. He maintains that today’s fans are more aware about what they want.
“It is so easy. I think I could get him (Reigns) up and running in 8 weeks. To me, it doesn’t matter if they cheer him or boo him as long as it gets asses in seats. I used to think you could get a guy over just by pushing him. You can’t do that anymore. This is now. Wrestling fans are connoisseurs now. Like the cigar days or the wine craze where everybody was a connoisseur of wine. Now everybody is a connoisseur of wrestling and they’re not going to take you shoving people down their throat. I think this is a challenge that they think they’re going to win. I think they should cut their losses and turn him.”
