Steve Austin Talks About John Cena’s Wrestling Ability, Daniel Bryan And The “It Factor”, ROH & More

– Below are highlights from Steve Austin’ recent appearance on AfterBuzz TV

The Wrestling Industry Today: “It’s a different game out there right now. These kids aren’t getting enough time to tell the whole story…. the product inside the ring is at a more accelerated pace, so what comes with that is not total selling of everything you can sell. You do something to elicit a response… It’s a short attention span theater and guys are moving faster than I’d like them to be, they’re overselling a lot of stuff in the wrong way and underselling stuff in the wrong way as well. Everybody seems to be coming from the same camp these days. That has its pros and its cons.”

Ring of Honor: “I like Ring of Honor, but sometimes these guys overwork themselves and try to go too much into the nuances, the shoulder slapping and the pulling up of the trunks, you know the little time fillers… They almost go back to a caricature of what was real deal wrestling. I do like the product.”

Daniel Bryan and the “It Factor”: “You’ve got to have it. You look at a cat like Daniel Brian, who is a hard worker, can wrestle, can tell a great story. The it factor was undiscovered. It has been discovered and now this kid is having great success with super strong talent.”

John Cena’s Wrestling Ability: “Cena can have a great match with anybody, but he needs somebody who can bring it out of him.”
