Seth Rollins understands the importance of women headlining WrestleMania 35 despite himself being in the running for this spot on the card. Having women headline at this show has never been done before in the history of the biggest event of the year for the company.
Rollins is slated to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania 35. He spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News where he discussed a wide range of pro wrestling related topics.
“You’d be lying if you said that you didn’t care about wanting to headline WrestleMania,” he said. “That’s the pinnacle. Guys have lost their minds about being in that spot over the years. This is all you’ve ever dreamed of in your entire life and everything you ever wanted to do and you’ve dedicated yourself to it. All you want is to headline WrestleMania and to be the main event. Those women are no different.”
“There is so much passion and hard work and love for the industry in that Triple Threat match. Those girls are in that spot not just by themselves, but years and years of women being marginalized in our industry and having to push through and fight through things. I’ll never know what that experience is like. They’re getting to represent future generations and past generations of females who are capable, amazing and talented.”
WWE will hold WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium and be broadcasted on their streaming service, WWE Network.
