Former WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins recently did an interview with TampaBay.com where he spoke about his recent feud with Baron Corbin for the top title on the red brand over the last few months.
Their first match came at the Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in on June 7, 2019, at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that saw Rollins win. WWE did a rematch at the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view event a few weeks later at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington.
WWE finished the feud when Rollins and Becky Lynch beat Lacey Evans and Corbin in an Extreme Rules Mixed Tag Team Match at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, PA this past Sunday.
Rollins gave high praise to Corbin in this interview by noting the importance of Corbin to the company.
“You know what, he’s come a long way. For a guy who came into the developmental system with no clout, he wasn’t from the indies and he never wrestled a match before, he stepped into the doors in Tampa and he learned very quickly from some of the best guys we have in our industry.
But he’s also a guy who wasn’t given much of a chance by even people like me. He comes from a different world and sometimes you can be ostracized for that. He’s a guy who took a bit of the hazing, but he pushed through, persevered and he grew really love the industry and he has dedicated the last four years of his life to being on the road nonstop.
And say what you will about him, from an audience member perspective, he works just as hard as anybody else and is huge contributor to our roster and the product we put out every week.”
