Former WWE personality Jonathan “The Coach” Coachman recently spoke to TechTimes.com.

On fans complaining about the product: “Well, one thing that frustrates me and always has about wrestling fans who love the business, is they don’t quite understand how difficult a business this is. What I mean by that is we all have our favorite shows and if NCIS, which is one of my favorite shows, if that was 52 weeks a year, you better believe there’d be a few episodes that weren’t as good as the others. The way Vince has chosen to do his business is to not have an off-season. That’s what he chose to do. So, I always encourage fans to, instead of complaining about, ‘Oh, this show wasn’t good or this show wasn’t good,’ just enjoy it for what it is.”

On RAW being three hours: “You get to have three hours. And by the way, I think that’s a mistake. I think two hours is plenty. Even in the early 2000s, when there were at least 15 main-event legit stars, it was still only a two-hour show. I understand contracts and TV money — I get all that — but I wish they would [go] back to two hours. That would really help.”

On Shane vs Undertaker at WrestleMania: “However, Shane McMahon has always been a dynamic performer. The Undertaker is now at a point where he put his body through almost everything he possibly could and he’s able to get up about once a year, twice a year and still have a magical Undertaker performance. That’s what I expect from WrestleMania. That’s what WrestleMania is all about. It’s about surprising the fans with something big and Hell in a Cell is not something you just throw out there. Hell in a Cell is something that rarely could you find two guys who are willing to do it, but can do it to the extent where the fans leave saying, ‘Holy crap! What did I just watch?’ Shane McMahon has always been willing to put his body on the line and [his] reputation on the line. He’s been gone for such a long time for whatever the reasons are and for him to come back, it shocked a lot of people, and that’s what Raw and the business is about. It’s hard to do that week in and week out. If you can, it becomes magic.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.

    Problem is, Coach, with Impact having trouble the WWE is the only game in town. They now have 30 or more former and future world champions. You can’t appropriately showcase that kind of talent in 2 hours with commercial breaks. There’s also promos to cut, storylines to further and entrances with eat up time. 3 hours is appropriate.

    In regards to the criticism of events, that will always be there. It’s not always bad to say the show was only average. It’s taken with a grain of salt. As fans, we know that not every show will be a 5/5. We still enjoy the average shows. I don’t see a lot of fans upset about this. Most of the criticism occurs around the lack of variety of storylines. They all seem centered around the adventures of only a single competitor.
