Ex-ECW Champion Talks Being Hazed By WWE Stars, The Business Lacking Respect & More

Posted by Phil Johnson on Monday, November 11th, 2013


Former ECW Champion Justin Credible has published a new column that talks about Indy Wrestling, getting hazed in WWF, the business lacking respect and more. This week Justin Credible talks about Indy Wrestling on his Pro Wrestling 101 video series. Here is an excerpt from his article:

“Switching gears I want to talk about the Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin situation. I want to relate this to what young men and women in pro wrestling go through in big league locker rooms. I remember going into a WWF locker room at age 19. I was barely an adult, in a world of alpha males. I was hazed terribly. I had my eyebrows shaved, my gear destroyed, and even tied to a pole, but you know what I learned respect. I learned to honor this business, and those that came before me.

“I was hazed by Curt Henning, Davey Boy Smith, and even JBL, but they always let me know, in their own way, hang in there kid. I manned up the best I could, and earned my stripes in any locker room anywhere in the world. It sounds crazy, but we police ourselves in wrestling.

“I’m not advocating hate or malicious intent, but I really think in the wrestling business, respect is lacking. I always said when is it going to be my turn. Well it’s my turn as a veteran to say we need to respect our business, and treat it that way, Because frankly Indy wrestling is all many of us will ever have. Respect it.”
