Konnan was recently interviewed on WINCLY Podcast in which he was highly critical of WWE's current product and their use of Bobby Lashley. Below are the highlights:
On Bobby Lashley:
"When Jeff Jarrett came back [to Impact] two years ago, he wanted me to come in originally as Bobby Lashley's mouthpiece, and I was like, 'yo, Lashley knows how to talk.' That's why now when I see him with Lio Rush, like, I really don't understand that because Lashley can cut a promo. And, to me, he should be demolishing motherf--kers and they should be prepping him up for Brock Lesnar."
On WWE's TV:
"How can anybody ever decipher WWE?, [Hausman] [has] been watching it as long as I have and I know I've been watching it longer. It's like they've done so much s--t that doesn't make sense. For every great angle that you see, there [are] 10 other ones that f--king blow your mind. And I understand that most of the viewers are kids, so they're going to have kids s--t in there, but it's one thing having things for kinds and another thing to have stuff that's just totally awful.
"There's no other show that I watch on TV that if it were as bad as [WWE] wrestling I'd still be watching it. Do you know what I'm saying? And so, they just put out a lot of bad content. And I just think one of the reasons is because they've got to fill up so much time that they don't have the luxury of an MLW that has got a one-hour show and they only have one show. I don't have to tell you how many shows those motherf--kers have from the [WWE] Network to everything that they've got going on. But to me, that's still no excuse for bad storylines. Get better writers or get more writers. It's just incredible to me."
