The "Rip Rogers and Randy Orton vs All Of Indy Wrestling" war of words continues to rage, and now Jerry The King Lawler has decided to volunteer his opinion on the situation.
Speaking on his podcast "Dinner With The King," Lawler said:
“I think that the problem Rip [Rogers] and Randy [Orton] have is what the young guys think they need to do to get noticed. It’s what the young guys do in these matches that bothers guys who have been in the business for a while.
"The young guys, like they said, they have a tendency to go out there and try to squeeze in every single move that they know. Every dive. Every flip. Every flop. Everything they can put in one 15-minute match.
"So in order to do that, if you are going to put all those moves in, you’re not going to have time to sell anything. It’s just going to be one move after another until the match is over.
"That is not the way wrestling became what it is today. Not what I think veterans look at and not what the business is supposed to be. It’s not that really entertaining for fans. I think that’s Rip’s and Randy’s point they are trying to make there.”
So Jerry Lawler thinks the Independent Wrestling style is not that entertaining for fans.
In other words, THIS is not that entertaining for fans:
