Kevin Sullivan recently took part in an interview with WrestlingInc.com, where he criticized Kevin Owens for wrestling in a T-shirt:
"Let me ask you something? Kevin Owens, who everybody is jumping up and down over. Can you name a person besides Cactus Jack to get over like that with a shirt on? Name me one. If you ask me who hit 500 home runs, I can name you ten off the top of my head. So why does everybody say these guys have to be pushed? If you’re an athlete, and you’re walking down the street at 2 am, John Cena is walking on the left, Kevin Owens is on the right, which side of the street are you gonna get up on? They need to want to be you, or be afraid to fight you. I think they’ve tried to make a chance, and people listen to the pounding of the drum, but have attendance or ratings gone up? We don’t want to listen to when people tell us what to do. For 14 years the ratings have went down. If that happened in college football, would those people still have a job? Coaches would get cut for not doing their job. Players would get cut.
I had the greatest talent of all-time [when booking WCW]. I’m not the smartest guy in the world. If you book talent and you have hall of famers on the bench, I had that. We had Kevin Nash with us, Scott [Hall] with us, I had all these guys in a box together. You didn’t see our guys running around in t-shirts wrestling. In the UFC do they wear shirts? They’re not. Ali in his day would have drawn $100 million on pay-per-view, and he wasn’t boxing in a shirt."
Sullivan isn't the first for making fun of Kevin Owens, as Jim Cornette also poked fun at Owens for his size, saying that he'd "never make it in the WWE."
Let's all remember that Kevin Sullivan, when he was active, wrestled in a t-shirt as well.
