Rohit Raju calls Ace Austin the future of wrestling and says Rocky Romero is one of the GOATs.
Raju, an experienced veteran of the business, has wrestled throughout the wrestling world. During his time in IMPACT Wrestling, he worked with stars like Jordynne Grace and Ace Austin, and he has met a number of performers during his travels elsewhere.
In an interview with Sean Ross Sapp, Raju played a game of word association. When asked about Grace, Raju called her a powerhouse and complimented the way she has transformed her body. He also expressed his interest in facing her in a singles match, following their previous rivalry in IMPACT.
“Man, powerhouse. Absolute powerhouse. Also, I’m a huge fan of fitness so I love how she’s transformed her body. She looked great before, now she looks even better now. Absolute killing machine. Jordynne’s great. We do need to have a singles, though. That has to happen. Just so I can drop you on your dome and scream ‘Equality’ again," Raju said.
Raju shared his thoughts on fellow former X-Division Champion Ace Austin by calling him the future of wrestling. He pointed to the impressive way Austin is smooth in the ring, as he makes everything look easy.
“Fantastic. Future of professional wrestling right there. Love that guy. Just oozes, just so smooth in the ring. It’s ridiculous how good he is and how effortless he makes everything look," he said.
When Rocky Romero came up, Raju called him one of the GOATS and emphasized that he's a great person. He stated that Romero is one of the most genuine people he has ever met, and he makes one feel like he cares about them.
“GOAT. Rocky’s one of the GOATs. One of the greatest, genuine people I ever met. When I got to see him again, big hug from Rocky. Just awesome. You can feel it. When someone gives you a hug like that, you can feel they give a shit, you know what I mean? It was good. Genuine dude," Raju said.
As for Danhausen, Raju had a brief answer, as he simply said. "Superstarhausen.”
