Seth Rollins was recently interviewed by the Daily Star to promote his Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar upcoming at SummerSlam. He discussed a number of topics, including the concept of intergender matches in WWE, how Twitter is effecting professional wrestling, and more.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On intergender matches in WWE:
“There are places for it. But this full on independent style women vs men match where the women are chokeslamming the men? Our business is based in realism a little bit, so let’s do that as best we can.”
He added: “I think let’s live in a reality a little bit here, I am not saying women aren’t as good as men because that is not the case. But there is a reason when you go to the Olympics there are mens and women’s [sports], there is a reason you have mens and women’s soccer, mens and women’s basketball. It is not they aren’t as talented, or they are not as good as athletes, but you just need to break it up. There are women out there who are incredible.”
“Whether we are going to have full on intergender matches, we may get there – but it is going to take some doing.”
On Twitter and WWE:
“Twitter seems to be this cesspool of negativity where it’s so easy to focus on what you don’t like rather than what you do like. People seem to band around negativity, I don’t know if it’s one of those misery loves company type things. Before it used to be you would hang out with three or four of your friends and talk about how you don’t like things, now you hang out with three or four hundred of your friends and talk about how you don’t like things. I don’t know, maybe you get more responses on negative tweets or whatever. It is frustrating.”
He discusses these concepts further in the interview.
