El Patron On TNA Reaching Out To Latino Fans, Who Impresses Him, More

– Former WWE Superstar Alberto El Patron recently spoke with The Rodolfo Show for an interview, check out the highlights below:

On Impact Wrestling creating a successful alternative product:

“We have a problem in wrestling. There’s one company and everyone wants to do what that company does. They don’t think outside the box… Impact Wrestling with the new owners, new talent, they are trying to do something different. They want to reach out to the Latino fans.”

On who impresses him in the business today:

“He is a great guy (Penta el Zero M – aka Pentagon Jr.) and competitor. Amazing wrestling. He is one of the kids I like in this moment. I don’t pay complements to anybody but there is a lot of wrestlers or fighters with a lot of talent but they don’t have the brains to take themselves to the next level. This kid is respectful. He is someone that loves the business and respects those guys that came before him. I really meant it that night.”

The Hardys Talk Unleashing “Broken Brilliance” On WWE

– Corey Graves spoke with Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy for a “Reborn By Fate: The Hardy Boyz Interview,” check out the highlights below:

On his intentions on unleashing “broken brilliance” on WWE when the time is right:

“For me, it was very odd going back to regular Matt Hardy, Version 1, or Matt Hardy – Team Xtreme, it was tricky at first. It was hard to be me, which sounds strange, but it was because I got so used to doing my other thing. Things that I had created or morphed into, I almost became. I felt like a broken man having to go back to plain old Matt Hardy in many ways. It’s still within me. It’s still contained. I think when the time is right, I will unleash it again.”

On use their “Broken” characters at some point in WWE:

“I definitely think there’s a chance. It’s something that’s a work in progress. Unfortunately, because of legal reasons, I really can’t go into that right now. But I find it very flattering and humbling that every time we come wrestle in front of the WWE Universe, they chant and they address it and they acknowledge it. Please, keep doing that. I mean, we love it when they do that. And hopefully sooner than later we’ll be able to go into more detail about everything. When it happens, I’m not even going to say ‘if’, when it happens, it’s going to be the most exciting thing to hit WWE programming in a long, long time.”

Charlotte On Jinder Mahal’s Rise, Finding Her Place On WWE SmackDown, More

– WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair was recently interviewed by ESPN on a wide variety of topics, check out the highlights below:

On Jinder Mahal’s rise:

“Knowing Jinder Mahal on a backstage level, I couldn’t be more excited for his rise to this occasion, becoming this supervillain. He looks like a star. He works hard behind the scenes. Obviously, Randy Orton will go down as one of the greatest in history. So, I think, for Jinder, it’s got to be exciting to know that there’s so much anticipation around the match. There’s also the element of other legends being there, front row, and he’s at the center of it all with Randy. Randy’s been in this position multiple times. This is another walk in the park for him, probably. I’m just excited for Jinder, as a whole.”

Finding her place on SmackDown:

“I think that’s trying to figure out, ‘Am I a good guy, or am I bad guy? Am I still the dirtiest player in the game, or have I come to my senses and Becky Lynch has rubbed off on me?’

“The girls that I’m working with are absolutely amazing. It’s not whether I prefer Raw or SmackDown; it’s more, ‘What’s my role? Who’s Charlotte?’ I think I’m still trying to figure out.”

Triple H Breaks Down Brock Lesnar Vs. Samoa Joe

– As noted, WWE Executive Triple H recently did an interview with Sky Sports in the UK and spoke about a variety of topics, check out the highlights below:

On Samoa Joe challenging Brock Lesnar at WWE’s Great Balls Of Fire PPV:

“Brock Lesnar is one of those once in a lifetime athletes. A guy that is 300 pounds but when he moves – it’s like being in the water with a shark. There’s a movement and then he’s on you. It’s incredible how fast, agile, how quick of an athlete Brock Lesnar is. It’s almost indescribable until you’re in there with him, how good he is. How fast, strong, and intense he is. It’s why he has been a success and everything he has ever done. It’s why he was UFC champion, it’s why he’s been a multiple time WWE Champion, but then again – Samoa Joe is a different level of athlete as well. I think it’s going to be an interesting contest and I think, if nothing else, you’re going to see two bulls go at it. It will be very physical, to say the least – it always is with Brock Lesnar.”
