WOW Women of Wrestling's David McLane Talks About Working with the Right Kind of Talent and How He Creates Characters

My background is character driven, I have a few {characters} and I have three that I have been trying to fill for twenty-something years and I can’t say their names because I want to find the right person. When I walk in and I think ‘we're going to have this character and that character’ some have never come to fruition, some you find the exact right person; there is training for four or five weeks and they blow up. Some get all the way and get on television for one event and then they’re not good in the locker room, they’re a cancer so we have to get rid of them, some don’t show up to work on time, some don’t do what their supposed to do. If there not professional they have to go. So, I grab the person’s persona listen to their background story and come up with a name. Jungle Grrrl’s (Girl) parents were from the Amazon, they were from Colombia. Then she came into the ring and leaped off the third rope like Jimmy Snuka and I just hit the mat and I said ‘that’s Jungle Grrrl!’

WOW Women of Wrestling's David McLane On Why He Is A Firm Believer in Characters and Authenticity

I am a firm believer in the characters. Let’s say Undertaker, who would he be without Undertaker? People just love the Undertaker. You look at The Rock, he grew into the Rock you look at Stone Cold he grew into that. Some may even say Triple H grew into that. Cause many of them started at Jarret’s down at Jarret’s territory wrestling so they found themselves and became those superstars due to authenticity, yourself {direct to Sean}, your authenticity is what made you into a superstar.
