Road Warrior Animal Thinks Women Main-Eventing Is “A Problem”, Rants On Becky Lynch, Daniel Bryan’s Heel Turn & More

Pro wrestling legend Road Warrior Animal is never one to pull his punches, even if his incredibly experienced opinions can sometimes land him in hot water. On the most recent edition of his What A Rush podcast, Animal took the WWE TLC pay-per-view to task for basically everything not nailed down.

If you’re a huge fan of the recent changes made to Daniel Bryan and Becky Lynch, or holding out hope for Vince McMahon’s latest “shake-up” to be a real thing, this especially “hot take” might not be for you. Hell, the tag team icon even took time out complain about Tyler Breeze getting a surprise Intercontinental Championship match on Monday Night Raw!

“You’ve got a guy that’s 185 pounds soaking wet – nothing against Tyler Breeze, he’s funny with Fandango. He’s a job guy in the wrestling business. That’s all he’s done is get beat and put people over. You’re gonna put him against someone that’s fighting for a championship belt? How much sense does that make? It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever and the fans see through this.”

Road Warrior Animal also apparently has an issue with women’s wrestling being in the main event of WWE pay-per-views, claiming that women having the best matches of the entire night is an indication of a major “problem” in the company…

“There is a problem in the wrestling business. Yes, the women’s movement is growing, but when the women are the main event and they have the best matches on your card, there’s an issue.”

Clutch your pearls, because Animal’s also coming for your beloved Becky Lynch. Apparently, the 58-year-old veteran thinks badass Becky should, in fact, be a whole lot less badass, indicating that the typical “white meat babyface” role is really what “works” best in the industry.

I would let her back off of ‘The Man’ thing and let her just be a pure white meat babyface that doesn’t quit. Those are the kind of babyfaces that work. When you come out there with the attitude and strutting your stuff like she’s some kind of tough guy, come on! Jesus, Lord, anybody that’s ever been in a fight can see right through it and I’m just being realistic because that’s what works in this business. You’ve got to think shoot and work the shoot and right now they’re not taking advantage of their stars who are stars.

If there’s one thing Animal DOES know a thing or two about, it’s making an impact as a tag team star. As one half of the iconic Legion of Doom, he’s certainly had his fair share of experience sharing the squared circle. However, the veteran star is apparently NOT a fan of another couple of veterans — Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.

“Don’t even get me started about those two. Gallows comes out there with a rhinestone stud setter set trying to look like a tough guy. He’s got lycra tights. You can’t be a tough guy wearing plastic lycra tights. Then his partner, his brother, wears blue tights and then Gallows has got black. What other tag team do you know that’s cohesive that does not match? All the great tag teams had similar gimmicks with each other. Now you’ve got two guys that look totally opposite being a team. It doesn’t make sense. It’s not smart business and I’m surprised nobody went up to them on their way to the ring and said to the small guy, ‘Where’s your black tights? Why you got baby blue?’ He had baby blue tights on yesterday. They offer you nothing…..maybe Gallows & Anderson are disheartened. I can see that, but they’re not offering anything to the wrestling business right now.”
