Robbie E was recently interviewed by Channel Guide Magazine and talked about the new management team in GFW, and his thoughts on the Rosemary/Sexy Star controversy. Here are the highlights:

On Anthem’s changes to Impact:

“They have revamped it with new colors, new ropes, new graphics and other things. So, some of the guys who have been there longer like me, a Bram, a Zema, they just wanted to give a little rest off TV. Make it look different and then bring us back. I’m excited about it because I think it will be a new Robbie E coming back.

“…I think change is good and gets people talking. Anything new is worth a shot. I think now finally it’s headed in the way of stability where the ownership isn’t going to change in a month and the wrestlers aren’t going to change. I think it’s going in a direction where it isn’t going to change for a while, so storylines are going to get better and the faces are going to become more familiar, and everyone will be on the same page. It’s hard to standout and be different in 2017. So, at least they are trying something different with the global aspect and the guys coming from NOAH, Mexico and places around the world to try to make the presentation different. It is what it is, and we will see where it goes. But I think so far it has been great.”

His thoughts on the Sexy Star/Rosemary situation:

“The old saying in wrestling is that it’s not ballet. People can get hurt, but it wasn’t the case in this scenario. I wasn’t there or saw the video, but I heard about it. Clearly this was done on purpose,” he said. “It is totally not cool. We are putting on a show, and you can’t hurt someone while that is happening. That’s not the name of the game. It is completely unprofessional. Hopefully, she will get what she deserves moving forward, and you won’t see her face anywhere.”
