Legendary manager Jimmy Hart has spoken out about the current struggle.
In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Jose G, The Mouth of the South was asked about the difference in today’s product. Hart responded by stating that today’s wrestlers are more athletic and can do things that weren’t necessary before. He also discussed the role of social media nowadays.
“Well, I think a lot of the wrestlers are very athletic now. You know what I mean. I mean, they can do so many different things than they did in our day, we didn’t, we didn’t really have to do it back then, but “It’s just so good that they’ve got social media behind them now, which sometimes gives you a shortcut to the top I guess if you’ve got what it takes. But I love the talent they have from head to toe now.” said Jimmy Hart.
Jimmy Hart praised NXT for the growth of the newer superstars.
“And we have a great training facility in Orlando, Florida, NXT and a lot of young and emerging superstars come from there.”
