Sunday Scoop: Seth Rollins On Facing Matt Riddle, Becky Lynch On Music & More

October 22, 2018

 

Seth Rollins took part in a fan Q&A session with WWE earlier. You can check out the full video of the Q&A session and some highlights below

 

Seth Rollins on who he wants to face in the ring: “I know he’s new, but Matt Riddle. He’s someone who’s super talented and has an interesting skill set, a different style. I’m always intrigued by different styles, I feel like I can have a good match with anybody and I’d like to see how Riddle and my style mesh together.”

 

His favorite WWE moment: “It’d be easy to say the cash-in at WrestleMania 31, but I’m gonna go with taking a helicopter into The O2. That was a pretty sick thing to do. Go right from a live event in Cardiff, get in a chopper, go over whatever body of water that was, and go right into The O2 on a helicopter with Roman [Reigns] and Dean [Ambrose]. Then go into the ring to wrestle Undertaker, it doesn’t get really get any cooler than that.”

 

His thoughts on Rey Mysterio’s return: “I was stoked about Rey Mysterio. Very happy to see him back, I had the privilege to be in the ring with him before he left last time and he’s just really fantastic. He looks like he’s in the best shape he’s been in a long, long time. Watched his match with [Shinsuke] Nakamura on last week’s SmackDown 1000, which was just fun to see Rey back in the ring. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.”

 

Seth Rollins on competing in the WWE Crown Jewel World Cup: “I’m looking forward to it, you look at the amount of talent in the tournament, plus the weird match-ups that could go down in that thing. Kurt Angle is in that thing, I’ve never wrestle Kurt Angle, I’d love to wrestle Kurt Angle. You got Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, John Cena is in it and I haven’t have a singles match with John in quite some time. There are so many options, I’m very curious to see how it all pans out. I don’t know what the brackets are going to look like or anything like that.”

 

Seth Rollins on choosing the themes for his wrestling gear: “I just see something that kind of peaks my interest, I guess. Whether it’s Knight King from Game of Thrones, or Thanos, or some sort of pop culture reference. You look at the ‘Tron-ish’ gear from SummerSlam a couple years ago. I didn’t want to have Tron theme gear, but I liked the design and the futuristic look of it. Whatever hits me in the right spot at the right time.”

Becky Lynch spoke with Loudwire for a new interview discussing the impact of music on her career. Highlights are below:

 

On which WWE star she talks to the most about music: “Oh, that’s a good question. I will say, in our women’s locker room on SmackDown Live, I can’t say I can talk about music. [Laughs] Generally, I’m hearing the gossip about Beyonce and whatever’s going on with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, which I don’t have a clue about. Who do I have the best conversations about music with? Jeff Hardy. I don’t have a musical bone in my body, so I’m so interested in what goes into writing songs and things like that. He’s got his own band and he sings and everything — and he’s a big Pearl Jam fan — so getting to talk to him about how people write songs, I’m always curious. Sometimes Eddie says words in such a way that you can’t understand it and I’m like, ‘Why did he say it like that? Is that purposely to fit with the melody? Is that just the way he wants to sing it?’ Just random questions that I always have and Jeff is good at answering them, even if he doesn’t know what the hell I’m talking about.”

 

On the importance of music to her rise in WWE: “Music is so important, isn’t it? It reflects everything that’s going on. Sometimes I’ll just be driving and listening and feel so grateful. When things weren’t going so good, a song like “Bulls–t” would really motivate me and you’d get into that zone and sing along with it and, for the lack of a better term, raging against the machine. Wanting to prove yourself, that motivates you. Sometimes, everything is going great and you listen to a song like “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam. It relaxes you — I can just breath through this. I know it’s more of a love song, but it’s just about appreciating everything that’s going on in your life. When he says, ‘I’m a lucky man to count on both hands the ones I love,’ I feel like at this point in my life I’ve got such a great support system, I’ve got such great friends outside of the business and inside of the business, and all the amazing fans that I have. It’s hard to not sit back and think, ‘I’m a lucky woman.’ ‘Guaranteed’ by Eddie Vedder — it’s on the soundtrack to Into the Wild — ‘I know all the rules but the rules did not know me.’ I love that, because that’s one of the things with the rise of Becky Lynch. She followed all the rules, right? She knows all the rules, so nobody expected this to come out of her. I know all the rules, but the rules do not know me.”

Harley Race spoke with Sports Illustrated for a new interview discussing Cody winning the NWA World Heavyweight Title and more. Highlights are below:

 

On Cody’s winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship: “If Cody keeps on at it, he’ll continue going in the right direction. Each and every person picks out his own spot, and that’s what Cody has went and done. He’s doing good. I’m sure Dusty would be very proud of him.”

 

On the responsibility of being NWA Champion: “People that were watching me noticed I was the same from word go until I had to get out. I just tried to keep myself in that type of position all the way through my career. Once I made up my mind that this was what I was going to do, I decided I was going to do it damn well.”

 

On missing professional wrestling: “I miss the whole damn thing. I got it going here at the school, but it’s nothing compared to what it’s like when you are world’s champion and you’re running everywhere around the world that has wrestling. The travel, the camaraderie, I miss all of it.”

 

 

John Cena spoke with kids on Today Show Radio, answering questions about whether he’ll be at WrestleMania and more. Video and highlights (per Wrestling Inc) are below:

 

On whether he’ll be at WrestleMania 35: “Where is WrestleMania 35? New York. I’m here right now, aren’t I? Would you like to ‘see me’ at WrestleMania 35? Then you know what, I was thinking about missing it, but because you wanna see me there, I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I promise you I’ll be there, I promise. Okay? We’ll shake on it, we’ll make it official.”

 

On his toughest opponent: “Do you know a WWE Superstar by the name of Brock Lesnar? Okay, if you know Brock Lesnar, he is big, he is bad, and he is mean. He was easily my toughest match. Now I’ve had some moments where I’ve done okay against him, and I’ve had some moments where I have not done okay against him. And the greatest thing about having a match with Brock Lesnar is you’re always nervous and you’re always afraid because he’s stronger than everybody, but you’re still brave enough to go in there and do it, and win or lose, you try your best.”

 

 

 

Kurt Angle did a new Q&A on his Facebook page and discussed his participation in the WWE World Cup, which NXT stars he’d like to have a match with and more. Highlights are below:

 

On who he wants to face in the World Cup: “I think every wrestler in the World Cup has a shot to win. I’ve already gone against [John] Cena, [Randy] Orton, [Rey] Mysterio, and [Jeff] Hardy. I have yet to face Miz, [Seth] Rollins, or [Dolph] Ziggler. Any of them are exceptional. Bring it on. I’m ready to win it.”

 

On the last time he got irritated by a fan: “When they chanted ‘You Suck’ to me. Wait! That’s every night. Lol.”

 

On which NXT stars he’d like to face: “Velveteen [Dream] and [Aleister] Black. Both have amazing futures, if they stay healthy.”

 

On his closest friends in both WWE and TNA: “In WWE, my closest friends have been Edge, Christian, Rhino, Orton, Big Show, and Brock [Lesnar]. In TNA – AJ [Styles], [Samoa] Joe, Christopher Daniels, [Frankie] Kazarian, James Storm, Abyss, and Bobby Roode were my buddies. I might have missed a couple too.”
