Bully Ray Big Soccer Fan
Bully Ray spoke with Half-time Whistle ahead of the UK tour and revealed that he’s a big soccer fan. He likened the passion to wrestling fans, and that US sports fans aren’t as raw as European soccer fans:
I’ve always been a fan of soccer since I was a kid, I was never in a team but played it for fun. My family are from Italian dissent and I remember watching with my grandfather a team from Bari in Italy.
I always loved the sport and as I got older it was always hard to find quality soccer in the US. We’ve got a channel over here Fox Soccer Channel where we can follow the Premier League and Italian League and all the other top European leagues.
I’m not a fan of one particular team in the Premier League but rather a fan of the whole of the Premier League – it’s such as fast, aggressive style and I just love the passion of the game.
I really am a fan of soccer for one reason and one reason only and that is the passion of the game. It is the passion of the fans, I don’t believe that American sports can generate that genuine passion, I believed it’s more forced in the United States.
