Hutchnews.com is featuring an interview with former WWE and now current ESPN personality Jonathan “The Coach” Coachman where he talks about the backlash of being associated with wrestling when he came to ESPN.

“It really held me back for a while. There were certain people (ESPN executives) that were fearful of some negative backlash that they hired a guy best known for wrestling. It was frustrating. I knew where I should be, at and I knew where I wasn’t. But I also knew the reason.”
