Konnan Reveals The Advice Shawn Michaels Gave Rey Mysterio About Doing Jobs

- Mister Saint Laurent reporting:

AAA matchmaker Konnan and MLW President/former WWE Creative Executive Court Bauer once again joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio presented by BarberShopWindow.com, the official podcast of Major League Wrestling. Both spoke about Shawn Michaels’ disdain for losing.

“I remember that was a big thing with Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan. It was supposed to be three matches and it became one match, which was a cartoon match because of the sensitivity of who was going over,” said Bauer.

Konnan added, “Shawn told this to Rey Mysterio once and I couldn’t believe it and I told Rey Mysterio, please don’t follow that advice. He said that Shawn once told him, ‘Do you like doing jobs?’ and Rey said, ‘I don’t mind.’ Shawn said, ‘I don’t. I don’t like doing jobs and you shouldn’t either.’ I was thinking to myself, that’s the worst advice you can give to a young guy. You just never know when a wrestler is going to go to Vince when nobody is listening and say I’d rather not do this. I don’t want to put these guys over.”

    But that’s all Shawn did was job for the last eight years.

    I don’t see a HUGE deal with what Shawn supposedly said. You ALWAYS want to be the best at what you do, if you’re ok with being “middle of the pack,” you need to rethink your career. I don’t look at losing a match as “jobbing,” I thonk of being put in a position to put someone else over, who may or may not deserve it. In the instance of Hogan going over HBK, I am with Shawn not wanting to go out, have one match, and put Hogan (20 years past his prime) over.

    What Shawn did was give his personal opinion there is nothing wrong with that and besides,he jobbed or put over a lot of people in his last run.

    Goldberg is the one and true hater of jobbing. Micheals has lost some major wrestlemania matches so it's kinda strange coming from him. Maybe he realized you can lose and still be the winner.
