As reported by the Aftermath Blog, WWE’s Rosa Mendes and The Miz spoke with The Register-Guard in Oregon about the Road to WrestleMania 28 and the pro wrestling business in general while promoting a recent house show in the Eugene, Ore. area.
Rosa Mendes on why WWE Superstars should be considered legitimate, serious athletes: “We’re really in there and hitting each other. It’s really serious.” To accentuate that point, Mendes — who was born in Costa Rica in 1979 but grew up in Vancouver, B.C. — says she has sustained a broken nose, a separated shoulder, a dislocated shoulder and dislocated jaw during her WWE career to date. She adds, “I don’t like it when people say it’s fake, because we’re really true athletes.”
As for the Road to WrestleMania 28, Rosa stresses the importance of this time leading to Mania as to why people should come out to live shows and tune into Raw and SmackDown: “This is the Road to WrestleMania, so the matches are going to be really exciting … It’s kind of like the playoffs. You can relate to that, can’t you?”
Lastly, The Miz speaks to the entertainment aspect of the WWE: “I always tell people that if you’ve never seen it, it’s basically a live event with a storyline and these characters … You’ll just realize it’s this incredible event and a lot of fun.”
