In a new interview posted over at WWE.com, Seth Rollins had the following to say regarding his new wrestling school, “Black and Brave Wrestling Academy.”
“It just felt like the right time. I feel like I’m in a good position here at the company. I’ve got the Money in the Bank contract, I’ve been successful for a couple years, and I feel firmly implanted in the WWE family, I guess you would say. I feel like it’s a good opportunity. Marek is at a good place in his life where he’s ready to commit more time to something like this, and I just feel it’ll be good, especially moving forward, as something to do in the future as well.
There is no affiliation with WWE, [but] they are super-supportive of it. They have given me the go-ahead; I think they see it as good for all parties involved. I’ve got a good set of eyeballs on me, so I can spot talent. If there’s somebody that I need to recommend to the WWE Performance Center that the coaches down there can take a look at, I certainly can do that, and that’s an advantage of coming to my academy. At the same time, there’s no affiliation with WWE. I’m doing this on my own time, with my own backing. So there’s a partnership, but it’s very unofficial.”
Does The Rock Have Plans to Do a One-Man Show?
During a recent Reddit A.M.A. chat, The Rock revealed plans to do a one-man show sometime in 2015. You can watch Rock participate in a 5 buzzer question segment, and he had the following to say regarding the one-man show plans:
“Funny (not literally) you asked. One of our 7 Bucks Entertainment prod goals for 2015 is to start the development for a “Rock One Man Show” live. Comedy, singing (w/ my Willie guitar of course), stories and anecdotes, audience interaction and how to rock a fanny pack without looking too much like a buff lesbian.”
