Seth Rollins stands in support of the writers and actors strike currently going on, but feels fortunate to be a WWE Superstar at this time.
TMZ Sports caught Rollins earlier this week at LAX Airport in Los Angeles and asked him what he thinks about potentially growing the WWE fanbase with the product being one of the only few current entertainment games going for the masses.
“I know it’s a difficult time for the actors and the writers. I believe they’re doing the right thing asking for what they deserve. I stand by them, but it is a fortunate part of not being part of a union that we’re able to still perform and, for our audiences and people who may not be familiar, now they get the opportunity to tune in and see what we’re all about.”
Seth Rollins Is On A Roll In WWE And In Hollywood
Rollins in some form and fashion may be affected by the WGA/SAG-AFTRA strike as he was caught on the set of the upcoming Captain America film, but he’s excited for what the future of pro wrestling is in today’s entertainment landscape.
“We’ve never been hotter. Business is the biggest it’s ever been. The talent across the board is the best it’s ever been. Business is hot right now. We’re in a boom, I think. When we look back on it, it’s going to be a special time.”
