• Top WWE Star Reveals Why He Missed A Tour Last Year
During his appearance on “Straight To The Source” show with Corey Graves on the WWE Network, Intercontinental Champion “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns revealed why he missed a WWE tour last year and what the fans were speculating:
“It’s funny how people come up with, like, all these conclusions. Like, nobody knew what was going on with me. I’m not like The Miz where I announce it on every Raw. ‘He’s sick!’, ‘something happened!’, ‘he got in trouble!’, ‘oh no, he did it again!’ And then, no, like, I went home because I was having babies! We didn’t talk about it publicly. That was a year ago.”
• Former WWE Star Says A New Attitude Era Is Coming, 2017 Is His First Seven Figure Year
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, former WWE Superstar and ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes talked about a new Attitude Era coming, how good 2017 has been for him & more.
Below are the highlights:
On if a new Attitude Era is coming:
“It’s a wild time to be a pro wrestler and it’s a wild time to be a pro wrestling fan and the merchandise deal The Young Bucks secured with Hot Topic could be looked upon one day as an historic moment in the annals of pro wrestling.
Wrestling is absolutely hot and getting hotter. Bully Ray was involved, but me, Matt, and Nick weren’t involved in wrestling when it was at it’s hottest in the late 90s in The Attitude Era.
We want our Attitude Era and I don’t know what it’s called or what it’s going to be, but it’s heading that direction, so we want to be on the right side of history. We want to be a part of it.”
On how good 2017 has been for him:
“Not to sound tacky, but this has been the first seven-figure year I’ve ever had and it blows me away that it happened, so on that end, for my family and well-being, that part has been the best.
But also, the part I enjoy the most, the fans and the creative element of what we do, I keep saying it, but to play music how you want to play it, it has never been like this before for me.
This is superseded… I look at a time, my WWE Intercontinental Championship run as my favorite thing I ever did because I got to change the belt and I got to be involved in a couple of WrestleManias with that in the picture, but this time, now, has completely passed it by, blown it away.
Being a World Champion is all that it was cracked up to be from every World Champion that there ever was that told me about it. It has certainly been everything that I dreamed and hoped for.”
