The past episode of SmackDown Live we saw what looked like a discord between The Hype Bros. Zack Ryder refused to shake hands with Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin after losing his match, and walked away from his partner, Mojo Rawley.

Rawley spoke with Dispatch with Sergio Jordann about Zack Ryder turning his back on him. Rawley says it was not the most “sportsman thing” from Zack but sometimes one can lose their cool because of frustration and things like this can happen and it’s not a big deal for him.

“As far as Zack goes, it wasn’t the most sportsman thing I’ve ever seen, walking away and turning your back on a competitor who’s offering a friendly hand. At the same time, this business is tough, you got a lot of people depending on you and you got a lot of pressure on you. These losses, when they mount up it’s hard to keep your cool. Sometimes you lose your cool, you lose your focus and moments like that happen. Not making excuses for him, obviously I would’ve rather he had not done that. But at the same day, it’s a little bit of frustration, it happens. Leave it out there, move on, forget about it and just keep it moving.”

Rawley says The Hype Bros have their eyes are on the Tag Team Championships and they both want to be WWE Champions as well.
Rawley then commented on his friendship with Charlotte, stating that Charlotte is like a “sister” to him and both of them have a lot of similarities.


“Charlotte and I started like the same day, so we came in together, we were trained together, she’s like a sister to me. We have shows on SmackDown Saturday through Tuesday every week and we have long drives in between, so you partner up with friends in the car. Charlotte and I did a week together a week or two ago and we just had a blast catching up… She’s great, she cracks me up, she’s so funny, her and I are so much alike. Sometimes it’s difficult with our work schedules to really get that free time outside of the ring and travel. But for us, having those long car rides together, that’s hanging out. Sometimes that’s the only free time we get, so we make the most of it.”
