Sporting News has a new interview up with WWE star Adam Rose about his thoughts on the ESPN E:60 documentary that showcased him and more.
Thoughts on the documentary:
“I thought it was really well done. I think it was a really good look at all the different aspects of first what it takes to become a WWE superstar and secondly a personal look at what the guys go through to get there. “It makes you a little vulnerable when you see things that personal coming out. For my wife, I think it was hard because she has been with me through the entire journey. She’s been with me through all the ups and all the downs. It’s hard for her to watch me go through all of that. And then to see it all pay off at the end of the day, I think we all share in the reward of that.”
Origins of the Adam Rose character:
“The initial inspiration was Elton John and I wanted something where I could be really flamboyant and dress up and show a completely different look. I had always done a South African accent and I wanted to do something with more of a European accent. Then someone else said to me it was pretty much Russell Brand and then I hooked on to the Russell Brand stuff and put a lot of that into Adam Rose.”
