> Hey Scott,
> A while back Vince took some heat over his comment about the Millennials comment, and how no one wants to grab the brass ring, etc… Everyone, righteously IMO, got on him because of Zack Ryder, Dolph etc… and how everyone is 50-50’d to death and no one gets over so no one can grab the brass ring, etc…
> But, just to play devil’s advocate for a second, what if Vince is right about this. Having wasted way too much of my life listening to podcasts one of the recurring themes from the old-timers is that Vince loves a competitive locker room. Hogan/Piper/Orndorff, Bret/HBK, Big Show, Punk, Nash, Y2J. All these guys push this theme that in order to succeed you have to be a little bit of oppressive. Now when you look at the locker room, what do you see? Wall to wall, nice guys. Dolph, New Day, Usos, even guys like the Wyatts seem like genuinely good human beings. What if Vince just can’t relate to that? Or worse, what if he’s right? What if it really is impossible for a nice guy to be a genuine draw?
> I guess what I’m saying is, should NXT hire Nash to teach the locker room how to stage legit sit ins?
There is something to that, definitely. Guys are legit terrified of getting fired for any little thing because there’s nowhere else to go unless you’re already established on the indy scene. Daniel Bryan got fired and shoved it in their face , but he already knew he could make money with ROH or whatever. What would Kofi Kingston be able to do that would duplicate the money he makes now, for example? Or Zack Ryder? They’re born and raised in the WWE system and don’t know any other way of life.
