Seth Rollins On ‘Crossfit Jesus’ Moniker, Training Differently Than Braun Strowman


Seth Rollins spoke with ESPN about CrossFit, how it’s become a new way for wrestlers to train outside of the ring, and the “CrossFit Jesus” nickname he’s been given. Here are some of the highlights:

Looking for a training regiment that fit his body type and in-ring style better:

“I’m 6-foot-1, 205 pounds. I have to move around in the ring a lot. I can’t be like a Braun Strowman or an Andre the Giant. They kind of get to just stand there and throw bodies around. I’m the body that gets thrown around. I figured it would behoove me to maybe put some of this into my training. And the more and more I got into it, the more and more I started to fall in love with the training paradigm.”

“CrossFit Jesus” nickname:

“I think I bear a striking resemblance to the western version of Jesus Christ of Nazareth facially with my own beard and long hair and stuff like that. And I’m always talking about CrossFit, so somewhere along the line, somebody put that together and came up with the CrossFit Jesus moniker, which is fantastic. I think it’s wonderful. It’s funny, and it’s correct, and my wrestling school made a T-shirt out of it.”
