Tommy Dreamer Talks On Politics In Wrestling & Hardships On The Road, DDP Appearance
– Tommy Dreamer recently spoke with Newsday’s Josh Stewart focusing on his FEW match on Saturday against Brian Kendrick, Jay Lethal and Carlito in Long Island.
Dreamer discusses that he’s not a fan of backstage politics, saying, “There’s politics in everything, I get it. But wrestling is unlike baseball, football. In those sports, you can be outspoken against a team, but if you score a touchdown, you’re fine. They might trade you, but you’ll still get the most out of it. Look at Dwight Howard, the guy can back up what he says. In wrestling, that’s not the case. Wrestling is live theater, it’s a movie, there’s casting. ‘I like this guy because he’s tall, or he’s muscular.’ I like people because they’re talented.”
He also talks on hardships living on the road, “I used to want a life where I could go out and live like a rock star,” he says. “Then you get to the point where you’re in hotel room crying looking at their pictures in your wallet.” The complete article can be read at this link.
