Back in April, in various interviews, Rollins had been ramping up his comments the top champion on the red brand to further build their program before they met inside of the squared circle for the title at WrestleMania 35.
Rollins is back at it as he called Lesnar a terrible champion who doesn’t inspire anyone in this latest interview.
“I’ve already shown the world I can beat Lesnar when I won the title against him at WrestleMania35 and I can do it again. After that, at WWE Extreme Rules, Lesnar cashed in his Money in the Bank contract when I’d just emerged from a grueling battle to take advantage of me and literally stole the belt back. Now you tell me, is such a win befitting of a champion? No kid in the world grows up wanting to be a ‘Brock Lesnar’. He might be a great wrestler/ performer, but he doesn’t inspire anyone, doesn’t do anything for the brand or business, and most of all, he’s a terrible champion.”
The SummerSlam pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, August 11, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena. At this show, Rollins challenges Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title.
