Erick Rowan Talks WWE Wellness Policy, The Strongest Wrestler in the WWE

WWE Superstar Erick Rowan was recently interviewed by Fitness Informant. You can check out some highlights here:

On who is the strongest wrestler in WWE:

“Big E is a beast. I used to think I was strong but this guy has a way of humbling you. Imagine doing reps on bench with three plates on each side and you’re feeling great. Big E asks if you’re finished. You say, ‘sure, want anything off?’ He goes, ‘No leave it,’ then adds another 45 to each side for a warm-up. HUMBLED.”

On wrestler’s physiques changing since the 80’s:

“In those days there was no wellness policy. It’s about long-term fitness and health. I want to be able to play with my grandkids and have no pain.

“Wresting is not about looks anymore. But being on the road 300+ days a year you have to be in-shape. Mentally and physically. You don’t have to be a bodybuilder but take respect in how you look, and it will improve the way you feel.”
