Sid Vicious has a specific idea in his head for who the “money guys” in WWE are, and he’s concerned the business is bad for the company because certain types have been placed at the top where they don’t belong.
In a recent interview with Hannibal TV, the two-time WWE Champion says that he doesn’t see much in people like Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura, who he called “this Yakamura guy.”
“I see people like Kevin Owens and this Yakamura guy and these other people like this. I see that and I’m going, ‘Business has got to be bad,” Vicious said. “Or they’re at a point where they don’t care, that’s the only thing I know.”
While Sid isn’t a fan of Kevin Owens or “Yakamura,” he does have praise for Roman Reigns, but only in the context of him being better than Owens.
“I think he’s one of the better talents they’ve got,” Vicious said of Reigns. “He looks credible, he looks good, he’s got a good energy. If we’re gonna compare him to anybody, let’s compare him to the fat guy in a T-shirt Kevin Owens. I think he’s light-years ahead of that guy.”
Vicious also doled out praise for WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, saying, “I think he’s doing a good job.”
The interviewer told Vicious he wrestled Mahal at one of his shows nearly 10 years ago. Vicious, however, has no recollection of their match.
