I border on being an Anti-Hughes.
Why? Because I had an advanced wrestling career and Hughes reminds me of a dozen or so top athletes in the upper echelons of collegiate wrestling. Out of those dozen a few got into WWE/WCW and got even WORSE after breaking through. Matt is symbolic of people too full of themselves that break through to a new profession doing the only thing they are good at and it shoots their egos and their assness through the roof.
They are elite athletes that 'want' to be looked up to and want to coach. But their whole method is demeaning and used, often subconsciously, to reinforce their own self esteem.
Look at the other side and you can see examples of good coaches, winners or not. Pulver, Tito, Serra. These guys are trying to help the sport, not just themselves.
Then look at Hughes, BJ, Shamrock. They lounge around, pointing to their assistants to provide some instruction, and then jump in every so often to prove they are better and/or give their guys a tongue lashing for not working hard enough.
Sure, the film guys have to spin a story and they often slant the footage to make for good drama. But, they wouldn't have the footage to use unless there was some semblance of the truth.
