Juice Robinson Comments on Character Idea that Received Backstage Heat in WWE NXT

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful recently interviewed Juice Robinson and Juice spoke on a variety of topics such as his character idea he was pushing for in NXT and how he received heat.

Juice Robinson had the following to say about his character idea before he was released from NXT:

“Oh, yeah. Gosh. I can clear the air now. This was awesome. To me, all I was trying to do – I’m gonna just leave it all out there right here – I was trying to be super, super, super left-wing. Almost a caricature of a hippy or what call a hippy. Just funny stuff. I kinda had some CM Punk / Straight Edge Society like that, weird, out there, almost disconnected with actual reality. That kind of ‘heel.’ That’s what I was going for. I was trying to not lose to people in two minutes on TV. That’s what I was trying to do.”

Robinson also spoke about a promo he filmed at SeaWorld that got banned:

“So me and another guy, I can’t remember who, came up with it, but next thing I know we’re outside of Sea World doing the tear going down my eye and sad music, the orcas are swimming and I called it Slave World. You can’t say that, of course. It was meant to be an idea. What could have been. Anyways, I showed it to Dusty and he loved it. Absolutely loved it,” Juice said. “However, somebody else said, ‘Don’t show that again.’ Well, I ended up showing it again. Apparently, Anheuser-Busch sponsors Sea World. Anheuser-Busch also is with WWE or something, I don’t know. Bureaucratic bull crap. It never saw the light of day, but it was very, very entertaining. Very tongue-in-cheek, very pro wrestling.”

Robinson commented on the whereabouts of the promo video:

“I do not [have it]. I do know where it is though.”

Juice lastly discussed if the video could get released or made again:

“Oh, I think so. It’s just wrestling. It’s just fun. We’re just kidding. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge, you know what I mean?”
