Seth Rollins recently spoke with former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Christian and WWE Hall of Famer Edge on the latest episode of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness where he talked about a wide range of topics.
This includes the former WWE Champion talking about turning heel by attacking Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, which ultimately split up The Shield that later led to him becoming the top champion in the WWE.
“I wasn’t ready for it. That was not the role I expected coming out of it. When they said it was gonna be me that pulled the trigger, I was almost like, ‘No, I was a babyface in NXT. I’m the babyface; [Dean] Ambrose is the heel. It’s not the other way around. It doesn’t make any sense. I don’t know how to do this.’ Honestly, it took some learning from me. I’d been a heel in Ring of Honor, but it’s just a different world here. It’s a different animal and you’re working with different guys.”
Rollins continued by stating, “The style is different. It’s a little more cutthroat and people are looking out for themselves a little bit more. They’re smarter. It’s a whole different world. When we did the turn, it was excellent, but it took me a little while to get in my groove trying to figure out who is Seth Rollins? What is this character when he’s not in The Shield? It took me a little while to grow into who that person was, and figure him out, and try on different skins, and sometimes they didn’t work, and Vince [McMahon] would get mad.”
