In a new interview with The Wrstling Podcast, Rosser discussed Lawlor and said that his previous comments on their rivalry meant a lot to him.

“You know, the respect of the fans is so important to me, but the respect of my peers is even more important to me. I don’t like Tom Lawlor, don’t like him. But he did an interview saying he would have never thought in a million years that he would’ve stepped in the ring with a guy like Darren Young/Fred Rosser, but the first time we touched in 2020, he said it was going to be something special. That means a lot coming from a peer I can’t stand. That’s what it’s all about, doing some of your best work. It’s about engaging with the fans, it’s about putting on a show that people remember.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Rosser said he'd want to face either CM Punk or Chris Jericho at Forbidden Door 2. Fans can learn more here.
