A WWE Hall of Famer has given his thoughts on modern wrestling and says today’s workers need to slow down and sell because it all looks “just too fake.”

Kevin Nash was giving his thoughts on modern wrestling on his Kliq This podcast. According to the former WWE Champion, today’s wrestling is better in picture-in-picture as opposed to being on a large screen:

“I think that what it is, is that it’s just that the workstyle has just changed, you know, where it’s a spot fest. To me, it almost feels, like when I watch a match. I’m so glad when they go into [picture-in-picture]. I’ve realised now that both the companies are doing the commercial break to go to the action in a small box. And I actually enjoy that more because they’re going so f*cking fast on a large screen TV, it’s just like, slow the f*ck down.”

Nash added that today’s work is too fake for his liking and he laments that nobody sells anymore:

“Yeah, it is just too fake, like nobody sells sh*t. Like you can throw one punch, and have the guy f*cking sell it and go against the ropes. Sooner or later, you’re gonna send the guy off the ropes and you can go to your high spot, but you don’t, you don’t have to.”

Kevin Nash finished his critique by discussing Seth Rollins’ recent outing on Raw:

“I watch Seth Rollins, Seth is a great athlete, and he’s unbelievably talented, he’s had some of the best matches I’ve seen. But transitionally right now like I watched him last night, that first volley on Monday was actually Monday night. But I watched last night the first volley that he threw in the corner with a guy who kind of turned his back out and was just – it looked like he was like making egg whites.”
