Nick Paglino

The Shield​Brian Fritz of BetweenTheRopes.com is currently in New Orleans and has conducted several interviews with WWE stars which you can check out highlights of below:

Rollins on how much Roman Reigns lean on him and Dean Ambrose:

"You know what, I tell him this and we joke about it, but the smartest thing the (WWE) company did was put him with me and (Dean) Ambrose. Because when we met him, he started from scratch. Granted he's got a whole family history in the wrestling business, but he's a football player. He's an athlete and he's coachable, but like he gets it. Like he got it quick and he understood right away what we were doing. I think putting him with myself and Ambrose, who had the wealth of experience and the all the knowledge and traveling the road. We're in a car all the time, we're on the planes together, we're having the matches together. He was just able to soak up that information we were giving out like a sponge and you can see the difference. He was great when we came in, but look at him now and he's a completely different performer. It was the smartest  thing they ever did, putting him with us."

Rollins also discusses facing the Wyatt's and being scared those matches wouldn't happen, getting more offense, leaving the independents and more.

O'Neil on being surprised by the reaction of Batista since his return to WWE:

"It's the wacky world of the WWE Universe. One minute they hate you and the next minute they can love you. It all really depends on the circumstances and depending what part of the country you go too. They'll love you even as a bad guy, they'll love you. So I think since this story has really in my opinion is really about Daniel Bryan fighting against the odds. He's been getting his ass handed to him for months and months at a time and people are tired of it. So I think the response like you said at Royal Rumble with him (Dave) was less about Dave and more about Daniel Bryan. So the YES Movement in my eyes is real. Triple h says he's gunna kill it at WrestleMania, but I don't see it happening, honestly. i's a very powerful thing."

O'Neil also discusses how Batista influenced to go to the WWE, his Florida Gators being in the NCAA Final Four and more.

Cesaro on the origin of "The Swing":

"I did the swing before I got to the WWE as well and I just kind of busted it out and the crowd stood up, so it was like alright that's something I'll keep. Its an old school move and it just hasn't been done as good as I do it. I think that's what resonates with the people is its something you see in movies and comic books."

Cesaro also discusses what's like seeing Daniel Bryan in the position he's in, fitness and more.

Natalya on if more people are talking about Divas match or slap by Summer Rae on Total Divas:

"Gosh, a little bit of both actually. Its crazy because I had no idea I was going to be slapped so hard by Summer and like that in such a weird setting, which was my driveway of my house. But gosh it was crazy."

Natalya also discusses doing Total Divas combined with her wrestling schedule, advice she gave to Daniel Bryan/Brie Bella and more.
