Seth Rollins explains why 2018 was his favorite year in professional wrestling



2018 was a tremendous year for Monday Night Raw star Seth Rollins. He won the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 34 in a Triple Threat match against Finn Balor and The Miz. Despite losing the title to Ziggler on an episode of Raw, he'd regain it at the SummerSlam pay-per-view. Now, Rollins is locked in a very personal feud with Dean Ambrose, who turned heel on Rollins earlier this year and took the Intercontinental Championship from him at the Tables Ladders and Chairs PPV.

Aside from that, Rollins has had a lot more memorable moments in 2018. He and Ambrose won the Raw Tag Team Titles. Rollins also picked up a big win over then-United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura at the Survivor Series PPV in November. Earlier today, Rollins took to Instagram to reflect on his 2018 in WWE. Here's what he had to say:

"This year was my favorite year in professional wrestling because it was the most intentional of my career. At the start of 2018, there wasn't a lot of buzz around me and some people were wondering (including me) if maybe my best years were behind me.

"With the support of my friends, my fans, and my WWE family I was able to capitalize on opportunities given and transform that doubt into momentum. I hit a stride so smooth that my confidence shot through the stratosphere. I began to flourish in the roles of general and leader.

"I was able to travel the world, make new friends, share the ring with some of the most talented humans on the planet, and learn a little about a lot I didn't know before. I don't know what 2019 is gonna look like, but I am forever grateful that I am able to experience the life I've been given.

"Thank you to everyone out there that played any part in making my 2018 what it was. It's never too late to turn it all around."
