WWE star Jey Uso recently spoke with the Gorilla Position to hype this evening’s Hell in a Cell pay per view, where he takes on cousin Roman Reigns for the Universal championship. Highlights of Uso’s interview can be found below.
Says he hates the piped-in crowd noise:
I can definitely hear the piped-in noise [when I’m inside ThunderDome]. I hate it, though. There is no energy. I have to draw that [energy] from either myself or my opponent.. Typically, you know how it is when you walk through the curtains, and there are people [providing you with that energy]. However, now it is like dancing in an empty room instead of when it’s go-time with the people. That part I miss, because I have to draw that from within myself.
Admits that he misses live crowds:
I used to walk down the aisle, and put my hand out to meet the fans, especially children. When I was a kid, I touched the hands of Ultimate Warrior, and that’s cool stuff which always sticks with you. So yea, those special moments I miss a whole lot. I really, really miss the people. That’s what made wrestling special, just like football. A live audience.
