There’s has been a lot of debate between the current generation of WWE Superstars and wrestlers of the past over the last week. It all started after The Undertaker said WWE’s current product was “soft” and the likes of Drew McIntyre, Xavier Woods and Mick Foley all rejected The Phenom’s comments. Two-time Universal Champion Goldberg did agree with The Undertaker, though.
Now, there have been more negative comments from Superstars of the past about the current generation. During the latest episode of Table Talk, WWE Hall Of Famer D-Von Dudley called young wrestlers “rude” and “disrespectful.”
D-Von said: “Like I said before earlier, he (Darren Young) was one of the guys that opened the door for me and Bubba because listen, you’ve got to understand nowadays in this business the young guys that are brought up in this business, they’re disrespectful, they’re rude…
“Listen, Generation X, okay, which is my generation, the attitude era and all of that, yes, we had attitude, but there was one thing I will say about my generation is that we respect those who came before us. And that’s one of the problems that we have with a lot of young talent. And Darren along with a host of other guys, I’m just going to name them, Drew McIntyre, Rusev and even Sheamus, they always had respect for the older talent that came in and always wanted to pick our brains. And it was great being in the locker room with those guys, it really was.”
