Seth Rollins spoke with many outlets including Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to promote WrestleMania 35 before he beat Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Title in the opening match of the main card.
During the interview, Rollins talked about consistently putting on great matches at live events, pay-per-view and Monday Night Raw. This led to him being asked if he viewed himself as the best in the world.
In the mind of Rollins, he thinks that although he has had some great matches on Raw, he feels that they are overlooked because he always puts on good matches when he steps into the ring.
“Best in the world?” asked Rollins. “Who knows what that means. But there are only a handful of guys who understand what we do, and doing at my level—as often as often I do—there is probably nobody else. That’s my opinion.”
“I’ve gone out and had great matches the past couple years that people have taken it for granted, to the point where a great match on Monday night doesn’t even get a sneeze because I do it so regularly. I just don’t think there’s anybody else out there that has as many incredible matches, with different opponents and different styles, as I do. I don’t think anybody’s resume’ can speak as loud as mine can, so I have no problem calling myself the best performer in the entire world.”
