In an interview with BT Sport, WWE star Happy Corbin commented on wanting to see wrestling moves have more meaning…
“In our industry, a lot of things are thrown away nowadays and just, they’re done to be done or to get an instant like, just a quick cheer, like, let’s do this huge thing and move onto the next, and I think that hurts our credibility a little bit in what we do because I look at it also as a real life situation. If I punch somebody in the face, it’s going to hurt them. I’m a trained fighter, and so I look at everything I do in the ring, the same. If I do this to you it’s going to hurt you, so I don’t need to do it 10 times, I need to do it once… and it needs to be represented accordingly from what I am capable of.
And I also do that for other people, like if you do this to me and if this was… if you hit me with a chair, have you been hit with a chair before? It’s not fun, it really hurts. After 1 I understand the point you’re trying to get to, I don’t need 12 of them, you know? I want to make… I wish we would make everything we do mean more and I think people would buy into it more. And there’s different styles, and to each their own, this is just my thought process.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingInc.com)
