Eric Young looks set to revive his career with Impact Wrestling, however spoke about his WWE run in a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio podcast, and gave a brutally frank opinion on the system being flawed.
“The truth is, the system is broken. It’s hard to get a word in. Even when you’re doing nothing, it feels like you’re trying to fix people’s mistakes all day. There’s no creativity, they want everyone to be the same, bump the same, sell the same, and there’s millions of rules, those change daily. It’s really hard to understand what’s going on. The system is flawed, and I would say that to anyone there and Vince himself. I’m not the first person he’s made a mistake on, and I won’t be the last person he’s made a mistake on.”
The former SAnitY leader also spoke about his relationship with Vince McMahon, saying WWE’s CEO was always respectful in their conversations, but that he made a mistake not finding a spot for him on television:
“Anytime we were in a room together, and we spoke, he was always respectful. We had two decently long conversations, they went well, and I thought he understood where I was coming from. I’m a man, and I’m not gonna stand in a hallway for four hours to talk to him. That could be wrong and stubborn on my part, but I’m a 40-year-old man, and I’m not gonna wait in the hallway like a child to maybe get five minutes to talk to him. I said my peace, he seemed to be responsive, but nothing ever came from it. I don’t take it personally. He made a mistake, and as the leader of the company and the person who decides everything, it’s a massive mistake. You have a three-hour television show; if you can’t find five minutes for Eric Young, your show is broken.” H/t Fightful
