The Visionary Seth Rollins got a fiery response from current WWE 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke. This came after the current United States Champion mocked Austin Theory about him cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on a supposed weaker opponent like Brooke.
Rollins declared that Dana Brooke would be the most viable option for Theory to win a championship with his golden opportunity. However, it seems like Brooke did not take his words too kindly. Brooke went on to talk about Seth’s comments with Steve Fall of NBC Sports.
“I’ve taken it many times. Sam Roberts, Corey Graves, now Seth Rollins. They don’t see what I do behind the scenes. It’s always about an opportunity and I’m waiting on that opportunity to come out there and show them what I can do. behind the scenes, I’m working 24/7. I’m in the ring, working out at the gym, I do boxing classes, work on promo skills, acting classes.
Everything. I’m doing it all. I’ve never missed a day of work, ever, I’ve had deaths in the family, I showed up to work the following week just because I want that opportunity, I really do. People always see what is showcased in the ring or on TV, but they never see how someone is working behind the scenes and I promise you I’m the hardest working woman. Talk is cheap.
I have that aggression, I have that pent up anger inside that I’m ready to let out and show the world that I can do it. Trust me, I can do it. I’m just as good and equal as every other woman on the roster. At the end of the day, my time will come,”
Dana Brooke then went on to reflect on her entire career journey, claiming to be one of the hardest workers in the locker room and how hate is her biggest motivation to thrive against all odds.
“I’ve been given the role of being a protege, a statistician, on the side of Mandy Rose, a singles competitor, I’ve done it all. I can tell you that no other woman has done everything as well as I have and I’ve done it with a smile, no complaints. No going in saying, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ I’ve always done it. I want to be able to showcase it. I’ve been on Main Event each week and I’m kicking butt.
People don’t see that. I’m always working. If they pay close attention, that would see that and see that progression. Hate is my motivation. People don’t take the time to look and research what I’ve been doing, they just want to see it right in front of their face. I’m waiting for that opportunity,”
Dana Brooke also spoke about discussing the situation with Seth Rollins.
“I haven’t. It’s funny because we were talking backstage before this happened, I had a match on Main Event and everything was great. ‘You did awesome. I like this and that.’ Compliments. That night, I’m scrolling on Twitter, ‘Wait a second. We were just talking.’ Seth and I are good friends, I love Becky as well, maybe he didn’t mean it the way that I took it. It was just the time and place because it was a couple months ago with Corey Graves, before that it was Sam Roberts. Maybe the way the source quoted it too.”
