Seth Rollins wanted to strangle Vince McMahon because of the booking for his HIAC match with Bray Wyatt

During the latest episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions show, Seth Rollins talked about a wide range of topics including his infamous match with Bray Wyatt at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event in 2019.

Their Hell in a Cell match ended by referee stoppage when Rollins hit Wyatt in the head with a giant hammer. The fans heavily criticized the match and booking of it. Rollins has previously gone on record by stating that he thought his character was dead in the water after the match. 

Rollins recalled in the interview with Austin about being upset with Vince McMahon regarding the match to the point where the former WWE Universal Champion was ready to strangle the WWE boss.

“Yeah, I mean look, I put a positive spin on it now that I can look back on it a year and a half later. At the time, I came back through that curtain and I was ready to strangle Vince McMahon. I’m not kidding you, Tyson Kidd [TJ Wilson] was there to hold me back. I stared right into Vince’s eyes, you know where he sits in that chair over there.

I looked at him and he looked at me and we didn’t say a single word to each other and he walked out. I sat down there with Paul Heyman, who also at the time was Creative Director of Raw….we had a conversation, he was ‘Paul Heymaning’ me if you will. And then the next day, I went into Vince’s office, I was much calmer and said, ‘let’s talk about this, we need to figure out what we’re doing here because that can’t happen again.’ It was civil, but it took me a night to…I was ready to go man if someone wasn’t there to make sure I was ok…my temper…my adrenaline….you know.”

Rollins later added, “In my head, if you go back to that match, I’m convinced if it had gone our way, it wouldn’t have been on that list.”
