WWE RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch addressed Jones' comments during an interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN.
The Man stated that having a career in the challenging world of wrestling is no cakewalk. According to the WWE Superstar, to be a successful sports entertainer, you've got to love the business. Unlike MMA where a fighter competes once every six months, pro wrestlers work multiple matches in a week and are on the road throughout the year.
The Irish Superstar is irked by people who think they can stroll into the WWE and easily get a big payday by working a handful of matches.
“Inevitable? Oh, alright. That is a pretty big word. Look, I think people think this is a cake walk. There is nothing like what we do. And it’s not as simple as just walking in here.
You have to make a name for yourself and you have to be obsessive with it. You have to love this. This isn’t a thing where you have one fight every six months. This is a thing where you are fighting three, four sometimes seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.
For people to sometimes think it’s an easy thing to do, that they can just stroll into, it kind of irks me,” she said. “It irks me — it does. Because I love this business more than anything. And if he loves it like I do, then come on then and I will show you the ropes. But, if he doesn’t and if he just wants to make some easy money, this is not the way to do it.” H/t Credit: MMAMania
While Jon Jones still has a lot to offer in the UFC in the years to come, we could see Bones give pro wrestling a shot when he decides to hang up his gloves.
