Barry Darsow talks lack of tag teams in wrestling, TNA’s Gut Check, more
Wrestling 101 has an interview up with Barry Darsow:
* [On the lack of characters in wrestling] When you go to FCW now all
they are looking for is big monster guys with bodies that have never
been in the ring before and don?t care about wrestling, they are just
out to make money and it?s not the wrestlers anymore like it used to be.
* [On the lack of tag team wrestling] When you have two wrestlers in
the ring you?re only paying two guys, but when you have a tag team you
have four guys you?re paying plus usually a manager, so it probably
cost the companies more money to pay for the tag teams. WWE and TNA
are still drawing the crowds without the tag teams, so why have them.
* [On TNA’s Gut Check System] The only problem is that a lot of the
guys they are having their matches with haven?t been in the company
that long themselves, you?re not getting really good matches right off
the get go. If they put the Gut Check guys in the ring with guys like
Kurt Angle you would see some really good matches.
