Seth Rollins recently spoke with Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald about various topics that includes being WWE Champion, Triple H, one NXT star that should be called up to the main roster and more. Here are the highlights.
On being WWE Champion:
“Everyone is a naysayer,” Rollins said of his critics. “Everyone has an opinion. Half the people love me and half the people hate me. A few months later and it all flip-flops, it doesn’t matter to me. I just go out there and do the best I can. I’ve been doing this a long time, so I know when things are going well and when they’re not. It’s nice to have people appreciate what you do though. Our fan base is super passionate and always has an opinion, and that’s awesome.”
“It’s been difficult. It’s trying,” Rollins said. “The schedule gets a little bit crazy when you win the title. Everyone wants a piece of you. It was not anything I wasn’t expecting, but certainly a little more strenuous than I thought it would be. You have to go out there every single night. You’re the last match on the show and the last one to leave. You have to tear it up and make sure the people want to come back and see more. So it’s a lot of pressure, but definitely a place I thrive.”
On one NXT star that should be called up to the main roster:
“I would like to see [NXT women’s champ] Bayley,” Rollins said without hesitation. “She is my favorite who is not up here and being used. So hopefully she gets a shot soon.”
On Triple H:
“Triple H has been incredible to work with,’ he said. “Triple H is the ‘Cerebral Assassin.’ His best advice to me is to make sure you always, always come out on top.”
