Due to the ongoing writers and actors strike in Hollywood, WWE is in a good position to negotiate their next media rights deals for RAW and SmackDown.

Last week, SAG-AFTRA decided to join the Writers Guild of America on the picket line, pitting the two sides against the studios in tense negotiations for higher pay for writers.

While speaking with TMZ Sports, Seth Rollins stated that he supports them but believes WWE will see an increase in interest from casual fans during this time. This also coincides with an increase in WWE’s overall business (ratings, attendance, merchandise, and revenue).

Rollins said, “I mean, silver lining for us, I suppose, you know, it’s a difficult time for the actors and the writers. I believe they’re doing the right thing, asking for what they deserve. I stand by them. But it is a fortunate part of not being part of a union that we are able to still perform, and for our audiences and people who may not be familiar, now they get an opportunity to tune in and see what we are all About. Yeah. I mean, we’ve never been hotter businesses. The biggest it’s ever been, the talent across the board is the best it’s ever been. The business is hot right now. We’re in a boom. I think when we look back on it, it’s gonna be a special time. Totally.”

Rollins will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor at SummerSlam next month.
