Sean Waltman On Money Not Being The Driving Force For The Younger Generation of Wrestlers

It’s hard for a lot of people my age and my generation and older generations to understand that. We were driven by money, not me as much as some people. And we all like money, and it’s a big driving force but money doesn’t spend very well if you’re not fn happy. And the younger generations are realizing that there are more important things. And people my age are scratching our heads going ‘wtf’, we don’t know how to deal with that, because you can’t hold things over somebody’s head.

Sean Waltman On Some NXT Stars Not Wanting To Leave For Raw Or SmackDown:

There are people that have just started, that don’t have any experience. People that have been around forever. There’s older people, younger people, there are a few people that are pushing 40 on the NXT roster. So there’s going to be different mentalities. And there are some people that have military backgrounds, that have a different mentality because of that. So it depends on who you talk too. I know certain people that are doing really well there that are kinda like thinking that a main roster move might be good for them.
