While appearing on Ring Rust Radio, Chris Jericho discussed season two of Southpaw Regional Wrestling and indicated that the season didn’t live up the first season.
“I think a lot of times the initial one is always the best because it’s such a surprise and nobody really knew what they were getting into. Where with the second one everybody wanted to get involved and some of the characters weren’t as strong.”
He continued, “I think Miz’s guy was terrible in it, whatever he was called [‘Astonishing’ Adam Düng]… I just thought that was terrible, it wasn’t funny. I thought the Butcher guys [Rhyno and Seth Rollin’s Butcher Boys] weren’t funny, whereas the first one was really funny because no one was really trying. They were just being whatever they wanted to be.”
“It’s like a sequel to a movie where you stumble onto something and it’s never as good as the original.”
