DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT HE THINKS OWEN HART WILL BE INDUCTED INTO THE WWE HALL OF FAME

I wish Owen could get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame but unfortunately it doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen. The only way I could see it happening… is like Martha {Hart} her deal is that she doesn’t want WWE to make a profit off of it. I can’t speak for Martha, but if WWE were to say ‘Okay we’re gonna induct Owen Hart into the Hall of Fame and earnings or whatever profits we make will be donated to the Owen Hart foundation,’ I think she might be more willing to do something like that. But even then I don’t think she’s gonna let that happen. I understand where she’s coming from, she was Owen’s wife, that’s fair, I can’t really argue that. I do think it would be great for him to be inducted.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT THE REAL HEAT BETWEEN BRET HART AND SHAWN MICHAELS

Growing up I loved Shawn Michaels, yourself {Sean Waltman}, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and everybody. It always seemed to me that Bret always had more of an issue with the Kliq than Davey {Boy Smith} did. Depending on what kind of relationship Davey was having with Bret at the time if they were getting along, not getting along… One day you’d talked to Davey and him and Bret were cool and the next time he’d be taking Shawn’s side on things. Kinda like the weather. For me growing up it was interesting, it was always intense. You always know that between Bret and Shawn there was always real heat. And that’s something that is kinda missing from nowadays cause not many people have real heat like that.  But they were always professional. Sometimes these make the best matches.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. ON WHY NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PROMOTION IN JAPAN  

New Japan has always been the #1 company over there for years. Back in the 80s I think at one point when the Funks were in All Japan, I think All Japan was #1 so it’s always like they’re gonna be #1, they’re always gonna bounce back and be #1. Like I know WWE & WCW  when they had their feud and they were losing for quite a while and then they bounced back up… so they {NJPW} have that ability to bounce back up. It’s always been the #1 company in Japan and same thing with WWE even though they go through ups and downs. One thing they’ve been able to do is that they’ve been able to expand internationally, nowadays they’re doing stuff with Ring of Honor… They were having some hard hitting really awesome matches, I’m not saying Noah and All Japan aren’t. It’s the Strong Style, they’ve been able to roll with momentum. They’ve been smart with things. They know how to market themselves internationally, I think that’s the main thing. And I think they’ll always be #1 probably through all the ups and downs.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT THE JAKE “THE SNAKE” ROBERTS ENCOUNTER

We’re all fine. That whole thing was just so stupid. I don’t have any problems with him {Jake Roberts}. I called him, I wanted to bury the heat anyway. My issue is with the jabroni wannabe bulls*** websites that make a fender out of a fart. They tell lies and blow things out of proportion… it’s all good now. But I don’t feel bad about it because I was standing up for my family and I told him a couple of times through Twitter or through friends to please stop bad mouthing Davey{Boy Smith} in his interviews like talk about something else. Or if you had a problem with him why didn’t you talk to him back in 97’.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR ON WHAT HE’D LIKE TO SEE NATALYA DO AT EVOLUTION AND HIS THOUGHTS ON SHAYNA BASZLER

You know her {Natalya} and Ronda Rousey doing something would be good. Shayna Baszler, she’s really awesome. I went and trained with her, we used to wrestle together… she’s awesome, she became a natural/pro at it because of her MMA background. But also the thing that’s good about her too is that she likes Pro Wrestling.

WWE News: John Cena Speaks On Not Being Able To Wrestle While Filming A Movie

Published

John Cena
John Cena talks retirement, being told he can’t wrestle while filming and more!

It’s no secret that the man who has been the face of the WWE for over a decade, John Cena, is winding down his in-ring career as the past couple of years have seen the 16-time champion spend less time with the company and more on outside projects.





‘The Leader of the Cenation’ will be making his WWE return this month on December 26th (see his upcoming WWE schedule here) after last competing at Super Show-Down in October, while at the same time his newest film ‘Bumblebee’ will be hitting theaters this Christmas. He has already confirmed that he will be at WrestleMania 35, so it’s expected he will be sticking around from his return until at least then.

Cena sat down with ESPN’s Cari Champion recently to promote the release of ‘Bumblebee’ and spoke on a number of topics including retirement from the ring and why he can’t compete inside the squared circle while he’s shooting a movie. When asked if he ever thinks to himself, “This is it for wrestling”, Cena responded:

“Well, that’s like asking an athlete like, ‘Hey, do you ever contemplate retirement?’, and you can ask a professional rookie that. You have to because anything that you rely on your body for an end result, time is gonna catch up with you. So there is gonna come a point where I can no longer keep up with the pace. I made a promise to myself years ago, years before I ever found my passion for being on-screen, when I can’t keep up with the pace I gotta walk away. I don’t wanna take a buyer’s money and have sit down and be like, ‘Ah, he’s just hanging on’. I don’t ever want that feeling.”

Cena would continue and speak about why he wants to wrestle while shooting movie and can’t, as well as how he previously misjudged The Rock by not understanding what comes with shooting a movie:

“So I don’t think that correlates with what I’m doing now. The biggest difficulty is trying to juggle stuff because I have learned and I’m trying to fight the system, but I’m losing, when you’re in production for a movie they don’t allow you to wrestle because I can’t go to a WWE taping, have my nose put over here [in reference to his broken nose in a match against Seth Rollins]. Not only does it not look good, ‘Man, you don’t look right’. So then they shut the movie down and there’s 150 people that are expecting a paycheck for that movie and I just screwed them out of their wage and it ups the budget of the movie, so I just put the movie behind the eight ball of possibly being a financial success.

So as much as I want to do everything, you can’t and this is a GIANT misunderstanding I had with what Dwayne was doing, what The Rock was doing ’cause he does movie after movie after movie after movie and I know the feeling of wanting to go back and I’m going back as soon as I can, but I can’t go back until I’m done with this. So I totally get it and I kinda called him out for it and that was me being an ass and I was totally wrong and ignorant and young and stupid and I’ve told him, ‘I’m sorry’, but it’s something I think that our fans don’t understand. If LeBron James was to take a break from basketball because he had the opportunity to film something, basketball fans would be like, ‘What are you doing? Go back to basketball’. So I understand the resentment, but it’s a tough balancing act and I’m bold enough to try.”
