Dan Severn on how there was politics behind the scenes in WWE
Dan Severn revealed that there was politics behind the scenes in WWE. For the wrestlers on the independent scene, it was impossible to get into WWE if they did not know others in the business already.
"How do I put this? Well, okay. I don't have a political future. So I'll just kind of be a little bit blunt about it. There's a lot of wonderful talented individuals on the professional side basis, for example. The sad part is professional wrestling is very political. It's really not what you're capable of doing. More or less who do you know in the business that can get you in."
"Then that's the part I don't like about it because there are some wonderful individuals on the independent scene that should be at the WWF (WWE). They should be working for some of these other companies but they're struggling. I’ve seen them on the independent scene and I'm thinking that's a talent that should be there and it's a few people that they have there that should be somewhere else, you know."
Dan Severn was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda Wrestling.
Dan Severn talked about how he was very blunt with his opinions, and that he felt that WWE had a lot of politics behind the scenes, and for wrestlers outside the company it was difficult to sign.
"But it's a very political aspect there and that's, as I said before, I'm not a very good politician kind of like a bull in a China closet that you know, you may ask me what my opinion is and I might get it, but the delivery may not be all that, so. But I can live with my conscience Mr. Michael. I can live with my conscience. I sleep well at night."
