On a recent edition of the “Under The Ring” podcast, Magnum TA recalled Dusty Rhodes working with Charlotte Flair to develop her wrestling persona.
You can check out the highlights from the podcast below:
On Dusty working with Charlotte: “He was teaching these kids how to find themselves and I remember him talking about working with Ashley [Charlotte] when her brother had passed and helping her find her voice, and find her way to bring out that character… That’s what a mentor/coach should be doing with these kids, just like he did to help them find their ways.”
On the importance of talent being able to accurately portray their characters.: “So that whatever it is that they’re portraying is not so far of a stretch that you can tell they’re uncomfortable in their own skin, and then it comes across in their delivery.”
On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Tommy Dreamer praised Carmelo Hayes’ heel turn explanation on Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT.
Hayes cut a promo on this week’s show where he admitted to attacking Trick Williams months ago and explained his assault on his former partner at WWE NXT: Vengeance Day 2024.
Dreamer said, “It was very, very truthful in his opinion, his mind. Every bad guy, every good guy — I mean, this is now his mission statement and why he did what he did. Me personally, I loved the first part where he walked out. And the second time he came back, he had more heat, and the fans were chanting ‘F you’ at him so loud that it was kind of silent on my television.”
He continued, “I would have loved [it] if he would have just been like, ‘You know what? You don’t deserve this.’ And walked out and never told the story or explanation until either Shawn Michaels or the GM, Ava [Raine], said, ‘Hey, you have to give us an explanation.’”
