Steve Austin Says WWE Needs To Stop Scripting Promos
WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin spoke to Chris Hughes of Brighthouse Sports Network last week to promote his new Broken Skull Challenge show on CMT.
During the interview, Austin talked about WWE writers over-scripting promos for wrestlers and how it prevents the talent from finding their identities and connecting with the audience.
“I disagree with (scripting). I think the nature of a promo has to come from your heart and your guts and you have to mean everything that you’re saying. Now is the perfect time to go back to that formula.”
“You learn to sink or swim. And guys and gals will start to learn to swim again. That’s what’s going to make the product feel more organic, more spontaneous and more real.”
