Konnan reveals the advice HBK gave Rey Mysterio about doing jobs



filed to GERWECK.NET:

AAA matchmaker Konnan and MLW President/former WWE Creative Executive Court Bauer once again joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio presented by BarberShopWindow.com, the official podcast of Major League Wrestling. Both spoke about Shawn Michaels’ disdain for losing.

“I remember that was a big thing with Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan. It was supposed to be three matches and it became one match, which was a cartoon match because of the sensitivity of who was going over,” said Bauer.

Konnan added, “Shawn told this to Rey Mysterio once and I couldn’t believe it and I told Rey Mysterio, please don’t follow that advice. He said that Shawn once told him, ‘Do you like doing jobs?’ and Rey said, ‘I don’t mind.’ Shawn said, ‘I don’t. I don’t like doing jobs and you shouldn’t either.’ I was thinking to myself, that’s the worst advice you can give to a young guy. You just never know when a wrestler is going to go to Vince when nobody is listening and say I’d rather not do this. I don’t want to put these guys over.”

    I would think no one likes losing…even though it’s a work.

    50% of wrestlers are losers – unless of course it’s a triple threat match … in that case 66% of wrestlers are losers.

  3. Denis says:

    Wrestlers need to learn that doing a job is all part of their job. No one likes to lose, but sometimes you have to in order to advance storylines or get someone over. Unfortunately, you have hundreds of wrestlers over the years who didn’t think they should ever lose. I always had a problem with wrestlers who were given creative control. It should be up to the promoter how a wrestler is used.

    If I were Shawn Michaels I wouldn’t wanna job either… Nobody was on his level when he was ‘thee man’ except maybe Perfect, Bret Hart, Undertaker.. All guys that helped Michaels but i do recall Bret saying in a DVD straight up that Michaels told him he wouldn’t put him over.. Even after Bret saying he would for Shawn. That’s Shawn..
