WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has commented on the work ethic of wrestlers currently in WWE, and what he believes younger talents should be doing.
In an interview with Newsday, Lesnar argued that some of WWE’s newer names need to step up if they want to establish themselves as stars.
Reasoning that you need to be passionate about pro-wrestling to succeed in WWE, Lesnar said:
“Some of these young kids nowadays, they’re so used to having everything they want at their fingertips with technology. I don’t know where the grassroots, hard work, and the ethic is anymore. Some of these kids, they need to step up to the plate if they want to.
“They need to have a backbone. They need to do something different if they want to become successful. This business isn’t just about getting in the ring and being able to do moves, you know. This is a business of storytelling and characters and being able to portray a passion about something. So either you have it, or you don’t. Otherwise you’re just a mid-card wrestler, or an indie wrestler, or an internet wrestler. And you’re just playing to the fans on the internet.
“They can come up with all kinds of (expletive) excuses if they want to. That’s easy to do. But get out there and do something with yourself. Everybody wants to bash the guys that get over or are successful. They always want to undercut it, because they can’t figure it out. I’ll outwork anybody. That’s just what I do…I’ll be 45 and I look as good as I do. And I feel good, you know? Get off your lazy (expletive) and go do something with yourself, instead of taking your handout check.”
