Channel Guide Magazine recently interviewed WWE Tough Enough finalists ZZ and Sara Lee. Below are some highlights.
Sara Lee on facing Alicia Fox for the finale: “It’s been nerve-racking because the show will be our first live match. There is a lot to do because we are so busy this weekend, too. You have to think about what you’re going to do then. I’m really excited to work with Alicia Fox. She is super cool…You can see the bruise on my back. We’ve been in the ring more, practicing what we are going to do in the match and our entrances. It’s stressful. I’m very beat-up right now, but it’s extremely fun. It’s great to get more time in there and learn new stuff.”
ZZ on the belief that he’s lazy: “Somebody told me you’re not a wrestler if you don’t have haters. You’re not successful in life if people don’t hate you. To have the support from my hometown and all over the world, it means a lot to me. At the same time you can’t appreciate a sunny day until you have a cloudy day. All the haters make my supporters that much greater to me.”
ZZ on facing Cesaro: “…My nerves are shot. Every night and morning I’m thinking about what Cesaro does and what I can do. If you’re going against a football team, you are going to watch their plays over and over again just have an arsenal to counteract them. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve also been thinking about my exit and my entrance. If I do everything I possibly can with enough passion and energy, it’s going to be all out.”
