ESPN recently interviewed WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, who talked about his crossfit training. Below are some highlights.

Seth Rollins on finding the right training regiment for his body type: ďIím 6-foot-1, 205 pounds. I have to move around in the ring a lot. I canít be like a Braun Strowman or an Andre the Giant. They kind of get to just stand there and throw bodies around. Iím the body that gets thrown around. I figured it would behoove me to maybe put some of this into my training. And the more and more I got into it, the more and more I started to fall in love with the training paradigm.Ē

Rollins on receiving the nickname of ďcrossfit JesusĒ: ďI think I bear a striking resemblance to the western version of Jesus Christ of Nazareth facially with my own beard and long hair and stuff like that. And Iím always talking about CrossFit, so somewhere along the line, somebody put that together and came up with the CrossFit Jesus moniker, which is fantastic. I think itís wonderful. Itís funny, and itís correct, and my wrestling school made a T-shirt out of it.Ē

Seth Rollins on how he uses crossfit at the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy for his students: ďIím trying to basically start a new wave in functional training with wrestling, with professional wrestling. I just think itís the best foot to start off on. At least after three months, theyíre going to have some idea of the fundamental of how to move their bodies through space with strength and speed and accuracy. So Iím just trying to pass the information and the things that Iíve learned and accomplished on to the next generation.Ē
