"We do have the platform to make a difference and voice our opinions on certain things like that -- In terms of her appearance being criticized, aren't we past that? You wouldn't see someone sitting here say, 'Oh, Roman Reigns' hair is phenomenal. People wouldn't be like, 'AJ Styles on TNA looked better than WWE.' It shouldn't be a topic of conversation. I know that we're superstars and people see us as untouchable, but we're human. When you see negativity like that, it's got to hurt her."

Meltzer has apologized multiple times for the comments he made, but WWE superstars have been unrelenting in defending one half of the IIconics. 

You can see the full clip below. The question about Dave Meltzer and Peyton Royce starts at around the 4:57 mark.
