Dana Brooke has explained why she took offense to a recent comment made by US Champion Seth Rollins on a recent episode of WWE Raw.
On the October 24 edition of WWE Raw, Rollins told Austin Theory that he would have a better chance of cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Dana Brooke than any of the roster’s male champions.
Dana Brooke seemed to take offense to this, firing back on Twitter saying:
“Talk is CHEAP!! I work my ass off every single day & will not tolerate this s**t anymore! I can promise you I am the hardest working WOMAN around, never have I taken off work, always worked through injuries, proved multiple times I can fit any position given & DO IT W/ A SMILE!”
Now Brooke has opened up about the incident, saying during an interview with Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston:
“I’ve taken it many times, Sam Roberts, Corey Graves, and now Seth Rollins. They don’t see what I do behind the scenes. It’s always about an opportunity and I’m waiting on that opportunity to come out there and show them what I can do.
“But behind the scenes, I’m working 24/7. I’m in the ring here. I’m working out at the gym. I do boxing classes. I work on promo skills, acting classes, everything. I’m doing it all and never missed a day of work ever. I’ve had deaths in the family. I’ve showed up to work that following week just because I want that opportunity. I really do.
“People always see what is showcased out there in the ring or what’s on TV, but they never see how someone is working behind the scenes. I promise you I’m the hardest working woman. I said talk is cheap because I have that aggression.
“I have that pent up, you know, anger inside that I’m just ready to let out and show the world that I can do it. Trust me, I can do it. I’m just as good and as equal as every other woman on the roster. At the end of the day, my time will come.”
Brooke is currently the 24/7 WWE Champion, in her 15th reign with the title.
