Austin welcomes Al Snow to the show.
Snow informs that he just recently parted ways with TNA after working with them as a Producer for a number of years. He’s now focusing on his Al Snow Academy training schools and his clothing company, COLLARxELBOW. He also informs that he’s currently in negotiations with a new wrestling startup in Malaysia, who are interested in hiring him as their Head Trainer and Head Producer.
Snow believes that professional wrestlers all around the world have gotten so far away from what the business used to represent, in the sense that a wrestling match is a physical competition in which wins and losses matter. Nowadays performers seem to be focused on putting on athletic performances, and that’s not what made the business successful.
Austin points out that performers are working at a faster pace now than ever before, and while nobody was selling offence a few years ago, now he’s noticing that some performers are overselling. Snow agrees and feels that this is happening because nobody knows how to sell properly. They think that grabbing their face after getting punched is the only way to sell.
Austin mentions that he’s been very impressed by Matt and Jeff Hardy’s career, especially after Matt has reinvented himself again with this ‘Broken/Woken’ character over the last couple of years. Snow agrees entirely and points out that while Matt was always a steady worker in the ring, he was always in Jeff’s shadow.
