Seth Rollins recently spoke SI.com to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
There’s a rumor that at WrestleMania, it’s going to be Roman Reigns vs. The Rock. When you hear that, what’s the first thing that pops into your head?
“I’d like it to be Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins.”
What about Seth Rollins vs. The Rock?
“That’s cool, too. Don’t get me wrong. I love Rocky. I think he’s great. Love everything he’s done for this business. But my gut, my first instinct, says we don’t need him. We don’t need him. If we’re not the guys who can main event WrestleMania, then how are we ever gonna be The Rock? How are we gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin? We can’t hold onto these guys forever. We just can’t. To me, let’s do Seth Rollins-Roman Reigns before we do Seth Rollins-The Rock. That’s me.
But do you see how it’s good for business to bring in that Rock audience or do you not care?
“I see that perspective 100 percent. I get it. There’s nothing wrong with growing, getting bigger and putting more eyes on your product. I totally understand that. I get it. But at some point, we gotta move on from that.”
