Seth Rollins recently did an interview with talkSPORT to discuss a wide range of topics including his infamous match with Bray Wyatt last year at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event in Sacramento, California.
Their Hell in a Cell match ended by referee stoppage when Rollins hit Wyatt in the head with a sledgehammer. Rollins, who was a babyface at the time, saw the criticism from fans regarding the whole match and its ending.
“At the end of the day, there’s no real nice way to put it, I was dead in the water after Hell in a Cell,” Rollins said. “And a lot of that was nothing that I could control. I was left out there as a bit of a scapegoat in that situation and there was nothing I could do about it, but I was the one that had to face the scrutiny.”
Rollins talked about how no one cared about him as a babyface at that time or what went into that moment that night and everything that went along with it.
“So, the writing was on the wall at that point. It was time to hunker down and make some changes, and some of those are tough lessons to learn.”
Rollins pointed out that is what happened and we are here now. He stated that there’s no point lamenting the past because he thinks its time to move on and go into the future to figure out what you’re gonna do about it and what you can control.
