Rockstar Spud Believes No One Wants To Play A Heel In Pro Wrestling

TNA star Rockstar Spud recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and during the interview, he explained why no one in pro wrestling wants to be a heel character.

“Everybody wants to get their cool move in,” Spud said. “This is how I compare it: everybody has watched ‘Die Hard’ and everybody wants to be John McClane but nobody wants to be Hans Gruber. Now, when you’re put in the role of Hans Gruber in your wrestling match, you want to walk through glass like John McClane and expect everyone to boo you. It’s ridiculous. I can’t believe it. That’s what’s wrong with the industry; no one wants to play the bad guy.”

“We want you have to have the experience that we are playing the antagonist,” said Spud. “Everybody wants to do the cool stuff but if I do an impressive maneuver, you’re going to applaud me and you’ll go ‘that was really good.’ But if I don’t do these and I kick and I punch and I scratch and I gouge eyes and I bite noses, that’s not really cool is it? I want to get people to hate me. That’s my job. That’s what I’m paid to do.”

    Spud looks like a 17 year old kid in that picture,I don’t think I’ve ever seen him wrestle because I can’t stand to watch T&A…I hope that’s just a bad picture.
