Konnan recently joined the WINCLY podcast, where among other things, he talked about how he was brought back to Impact Wrestling. He would also share his thoughts on WWE creative.
According to Konnan, he was initially going to be Bobby Lashley’s manager on Impact. He found Lashley’s pairing with Lio Rush ”puzzling” as Bobby can cut a promo.
“When Jeff Jarrett came back [to Impact] two years ago, he wanted me to come in originally as Bobby Lashley’s mouthpiece. And I was like, ‘yo, Lashley knows how to talk.’ That’s why now when I see him with Lio Rush, like, I really don’t understand that because Lashley can cut a promo. And, to me, he should be demolishing motherf–kers and they should be prepping him up for Brock Lesnar.”
Konnan said there is no excuse for weak writing due to filling TV time when he talked about WWE creative
“How can anybody ever decipher WWE?,” Konnan asked. “[Hausman] [has] been watching it as long as I have and I know I’ve been watching it longer. It’s like they’ve done so much s–t that doesn’t make sense. For every great angle that you see, there [are] 10 other ones that f–king blow your mind.
And I understand that most of the viewers are kids, so they’re going to have kids s–t in there, but it’s one thing having things for kinds and another thing to have stuff that’s just totally awful.”
“There’s no other show that I watch on TV that if it were as bad as [WWE] wrestling I’d still be watching it. Do you know what I’m saying? And so, they just put out a lot of bad content. And I just think one of the reasons is because they’ve got to fill up so much time that they don’t have the luxury of an MLW that has got a one-hour show and they only have one show.
I don’t have to tell you how many shows those motherf–kers have from the [WWE] Network to everything that they’ve got going on. But to me, that’s still no excuse for bad storylines. Get better writers or get more writers. It’s just incredible to me.”
