The Architect has had an incredible year so far. Seth Rollins has been a part of some of the greatest matches on the main roster in 2018 and doesn’t plan on letting up anytime soon.
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Rollins said that he’d like to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania while also revealing that he’s kind of tired of seeing their spots taken by the part-timers and legends.
Should Roman Reigns turn heel?
I don’t know. He’s in an interesting spot as a character. Until there’s something that really feels like, ‘OK we should push it one way or the other,’ he still gets one of the loudest reactions one way or the other every single night no matter where we’re at, in whatever town we’re at. If we’re in Paducah, Kent., on a Sunday afternoon and there are a billion kids in the crowd, he’s gonna be universally praised and when he hits a spear and they’ll go bananas. When he’s in Brooklyn, N.Y. at SummerSlam, the place might turn their back and boo him out of the building, but he’s still getting a reaction, so I don’t know. I don’t know what the right answer is, but I’m happy it’s not my decision to make.
Roman Reigns vs The Rock at WrestleMania:
I’d like it to be Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins.
Would he like to face The Rock at WrestleMania:
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 The Rock audience or do you not care?
I see that perspective 100%. 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.
Do you agree with Seth Rollins? Should the WWE focus more on its current crop of talents more than part-timers and legends?
