‘The Dream’ said, “I think ‘Tank’ will win. I think Rolly’s trash. I don’t rate him at all. I mean, who has he beat to prove he even belongs at the top? … What did he even do to get there? Who did he beat?

Providing reasons for his statements, Haney said, “His biggest fight that he won for the interim belt was against a guy that he really lost to. So, I mean, all that speaks for itself. ‘Tank’ is on a totally different level than Rolly, so I don’t even rate that fight at all. That’s not even a competitive fight to me.”

These were some massive statements from ‘The Dream’ to favor ‘Tank’, who he might face in the future.
