The NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream recently made a post on Instagram detailing his thoughts on the state of WWE. Dream put the blame on the Superstars and defended Vince McMahon. Here’s what he had to say:
Let’s play a game
Is it fair to critique Vince? I mean after all WWE is a form of entertainment. You do know WWE is a TV show?
Right?!?! WWE is a TV show put on cable and Network TV. By who you ask? Answer: Vince McMahon
Evil Boss (On Screen) & Director of his TV show’s (Off Screen)
Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, etc…
George Lucas directed Star Wars. Vince McMahon directs Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live and he’s directed everything else you’ve watched from WWE over the last 40 years. Yes John I am sure.
Point is: When TV sucks it’s because of the actors and entertainers and stunt men FAILED to entertain you.
Vince can write ALL DAY it’s your ‘favorites’ that have to make it entertaining.
Star Wars was great in the 90’s too! The new ones suck because the new actors SUCK. And yes this is still a WWE thread.
Game over. I meant dream over.”
The Ringside View: It‘s certainly a different take than one we are use to hearing from the locker room these days. However, it may not sit well with his co-workers. While it’s true that the Stars can make the show worth watching they only have so much control as well which makes it hard.
