Johnny Mundo spoke with Alfred Konuwa of the PodNasty Wrestling Podcast during last week's Lucha Underground tapings. He talked about his current run in Lucha Underground and continued his war of words with former WWE champion Seth Rollins. You can check out the full interview in the video above, they sent us these highlights:
Seth Rollins' Current Injury:
"There's nothing worse than being injured, especially for somebody like Seth because he's an artist in the ring. To have a broken wheel like he's got right now, has got to be killing him. I wish him a speedy recovery, because I want to kick his ass one day. And I will say that I'm sure he can talk all kinds of trash to you or whoever, as long as I'm not in the room with him. But I also think that after his interview with you — and I might have said a few things back — I don't think he's ever going to say anything about me again because he knows at the end of the day I'm smarter, more talented, I've had a much longer, better career than him and if we're ever in the ring together it's going to be painfully obvious how much better than him I am."
Having more fun at Lucha Underground:
"I think that's one of the coolest thing about the Lucha environment here at Lucha Underground. Backstage, we're like a family, but we're all constantly trying to one-up each other, and outdo each other and put on the best show that's humanly possible and I think that's what's happening. Everybody's pushing each other, but everybody's enjoying the experience too. I think it's especially true with Improv, if someone's not having fun, why watch it?"
Having more creativity:
"I do feel like there's not handcuffs here, so to speak, and creativity is more encouraged and people are more receptive to ideas here. WWE is sometimes a little bit micromanaged, and backstage everybody's dragging their feet, walking on egg shells a little bit and here I don't think that exists."
