Jay Lethal on being a leader, WWE using a ROH idea

Scott Fishman of ChannelGuideMagBlog.com passed along a new interview with ROH World & TV Champion Jay Lethal promoting this Friday’s All-Star Extravaganza VII PPV. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On feeling weird being considered a locker-room leader:

“There is still a lot that I don’t know. There is still a lot that I’m learning. You are always learning in wrestling, I feel like nobody should be referring to me as the locker room leader or veteran, but it’s almost that role I’ve fallen into because of the spot on the show that I am on. I get to work with a lot of the up-and-comers or younger guys on the roster or guys not mainly featured as much. I love the role that I’m in. I just don’t like the name. There is still a lot I don’t know. You are always learning. One of the hardest things to nail down is learning how the crowd will react to certain things because there is no 100 percent on that.”

On WWE using ROH’s idea of having a double champion:

“If that is actually where WWE got the idea from, I’m honored, I’m honored they saw something that was cool and said, ‘Let’s do it.’ There would be no way I could be upset at that. It would be like when I did my Ric Flair impression if he told me he hated it. Thank God he didn’t because he saw it as me honoring him.”
