Sid Vicious Talks WWE, Bray Wyatt, Undertaker's Streak, Compares Vince McMahon And Eric Bischoff
Source: Wrestling 101Wrestling 101 has an interview with former WWE Champion Sid Vicious. Below are some highlights:
Winning the WWE Championship during his second run with the company:
That was a really cool time, the business had been down a little bit and I had taken a little bit of time off due to a neck injury. When I came back a few changes had been made, believe it or not I think Jake Roberts had a lot to do with that, we was working with Vince (McMahon) a lot at the time.
Things got hot, got fun, and I got a chance to sort of be the first person to be heel and face at the same time, I would work as a heel one night and a babyface the next night. The fans especially the fans in the North-East are pretty educated and opinionated and it was a pretty good feeling hearing people cheering me as a heel.
The Undertaker's streak and defending the title against him at WrestleMania 13:
I honestly think Vince and the guys think things like that up a long time beforehand, they probably would have had the streak planned way in advance. I never really thought about things like that, most of the time I didn't even know who I was going to be working with until I arrived at the arena on the night, I didn't care. I just wanted to have a good match and get out of there.
I thought Eric was a pretty cool cat, working with Eric was very fun and the atmosphere was great whilst working for Vince it was all about the finer points of the business.
Who he enjoys watching today:
To be honest with you I never watch TNA, and in general I don't really watch a lot of wrestling anymore. Some of the guys I've enjoyed watching coming up a little bit are the Wyatt Family, and Bray Wyatt, Mike Rotunda's kid. I don't know if you've noticed this but Vince has tried getting that character to work on at least two other occasions.
Another guy I really like is Jack Swagger, I think he has got every tool there is. He has got such a great look and he seems to be one hell of a talent, but if he could just push out a little charisma then he could be a real star.
