Seth Rollins comments on the SAG-AFTRA strike.
SAG-AFTRA and the Writers Guild of America are both on strike, so Hollywood has temporarily shut down, as both writers and actors are fighting for better compensation, among other demands.
Speaking with TMZ Sports, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Rollins was asked to share his thoughts on the SAG-AFTRA strike. The interviewer wondered whether Rollins felt like the strike presented WWE with an opportunity to bring in new fans. The champion noted that he stands by the writers, but WWE is fortunate to not be part of a union, as they can still perform.
“Silver lining for us, I suppose,” Rollins said. “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, [and] I stand by them. It is a fortunate part of not being part of a union, and we are able to still perform and for audiences and for people who may not be familiar, now they get an opportunity to tune in and see what we’re about.”
