In a recent interview with comPODres, Mr. T shared some stories from his WWE career.
Mr. T referenced the tensions conveyed by some existing roster members due to his perceived lack of experience following his arrival in WWE.
The WWE Hall of Famer explained that his own background and skills were more than equal to the skillset of the existing wrestlers. He said,
“When I came in, at first, some of the wrestlers were a little jealous. Number one, they didn’t know I could bring it. I was a wrestling champion in the city of Chicago. I knew how to wrestle. They didn’t realize the business of wrestling. Vince McMahon brought me in to elevate wrestling. Those guys, sure, they had been around and had it hard. I’m bringing light to wrestling, and they didn’t see that. They were a little jealous at first. They thought that, me coming in that I couldn’t hold my own. They found out real quick.”
