Seth Rollins recently spoke with Nola.com to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
Winning Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania 34:
“It really reignited my career,” said Rollins. “It was an experience for me to for the first time really get to soak in what a WrestleMania feels like. It was cool.”
The Shield reunion:
“I can’t tell you that,” Rollins said with a laugh. “The Shield always has something up its sleeve, though we’ve been caught off guard a little bit lately. The team of Dolph, Drew and Braun is quite formidable. Braun is no joke, and neither is Drew. Dolph is a little bit of one, but he’s clever and wily and a veteran.
“In my opinion, The Shield is the greatest faction of all-time, one of them, and I can’t think of a better place to throw a party than New Orleans. It should be a very eventful Monday.”
Intercontinental Title history:
“Go all the way back to Pat Patterson, the first IC champion,” Rollins said. “It’s always been known as the workhorse title; the grittier guys carry that thing. Look at guys like Edge and Chris Jericho and Mr. Perfect, Macho Man Randy Savage. These guys were quintessential IC champions.
“To be a part of that is cool. And not only to be a part of it, but when it’s all said and done, people (might) remember my IC championship reign fondly. And hopefully, I’ll be in the company of those gentlemen when the next guy comes along and is asked the same question.”
