“I told you before this interview that I don’t do trash talking, but the closest I’ll get to being critical is that absolutely, I want to slap Vince upside the head. The music is so bad! These days it’s just sound effects and noises and stuff. It doesn’t have anything to do with the characters and the storylines anymore. That’s the essence of this business. And that’s currently lost.

“I hate to say this, but there’s a certain satisfaction that the music now is so bad. Because it makes me feel better about what I did contribute. It does make me feel bad for a bunch of the wrestlers, because without good music you can’t become a big star. I don’t believe it’s possible.
