Tommy Dreamer Has Some Regrets – “I think ECW spurred a lot of garbage wrestling”


Tommy Dreamer spoke with Total Wrestling Magazine for a new interview. Check out the highlights below:

On the UK wrestling scene: “I keep tabs on what’s going on with wrestling around the world. I know the popularity is huge in Scotland with packed houses. There seems to be a kinda of, and I don’t want to use this word, but a revolution. For a while there were a lot of crappy wrestlers, like there are everywhere but the UK always had a small group of great wrestlers, guys that could really wrestle. I remember watching these guys and being like ‘woah, what happened here’. Then all of a sudden there was the swell of talent and amazing wrestlers. I know because when I was working in WWE, they were some of the first guys I hired. This growth of UK talent and the UK scene in general over the past six to eight years is incredible.”

On where the decline in actual wrestling came from: “I think ECW spurred a lot of garbage wrestling. Guys would look at myself and Sandman and think that they could put on a T-Shirt and sweatpants and call themselves a wrestler. There’s a lot more to it. There are some seriously great workers out there in the UK.”
