Seth Rollins talks about Brock Lesnar killing the industry and more

Seth Rollins recently spoke with Yahoo to promote his match against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania. Seth said people are simply tired of Brock keeping the title away.

“I think people are just sick of it,” Rollins said. “You’ve seen and heard it every single week. They want to see a champion who is going to be there, that’s going to represent them, that’s a champion they can be proud of and one that inspires people. Brock Lesnar doesn’t inspire anybody. He’s an industry killer, not an industry builder. He cares about no one but himself and he’ll tell you that, it’s been that way his entire life. He was given the opportunity years ago to carry the mantle here in WWE but it was too tough for him and he walked away. Granted, he’s been able to come back and do things on his own terms, but his own terms only serve himself.”

Rollins then talked about The Shield’s final match together at WWE Fastlane. He said it was one of the most emotional experiences he ever experienced in his professional wrestling career.

“At the end of the day, I was happy to have that one last match with my Shield brothers by my side,” he said. “It was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve ever had in a wrestling ring and it felt so good. Whenever we’re back on the same side, it’s so easy, it’s so much fun. Knowing that was the last one, I think we all felt it, were able to soak it in and enjoy that match. That propelled me and gave me all of the momentum I needed heading into WrestleMania.”

Even though Rollins’ match is for the Universal Title, it won’t be the main event and that is okay with Rollins. He said he looks forward to seeing Becky Lynch, RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair stealing the show in the main event of Wrestlemania.

“They have worked so hard this year to get themselves into this position, all three of them, obviously,” Rollins said “This is a landmark moment and historic in almost every way. It was 100 percent the right decision, I’m super proud of all of them, I’m friends with all of them and close to them. I’m really looking forward to them stealing the show and it’s going really, really cool to see.”

We will get to know who will come out on top in Seth vs Brock at Wrestlemania this Sunday.

    You know, it’s funny, because WWE wants him to say these things, to build “heat” for this dead-on-arrival WM match. Yet what he’s saying is actually true. Yes, to SOME morons out there, somehow Lesnar is still a “money draw”. But for a LOT of fans, Lesnar’s ridiculous time back in the WWE spotlight has been vomit inducing. No other star in WWF/E history, has been pushed AS much as he has since he returned (once, like Rousey, he wasn’t able to fight in MMA anymore), and has been allowed to work SUCH a light schedule, while not only becoming “World Champ”, but getting to KEEP the belt for months or even cumulative years, all while barely ever showing up and actually defending it.

    He’s the highest paid WWE star, and has been for years now. Yet he’s also the one who shows up the least, and worsts the least, out of all of them. A man who doesn’t care about his fellow wrestlers, the fans, or the business itself. He’s literally just a mercenary, out for a paycheck, yet that’s treated like that’s ok. Not only that, but he’s allowed to practically be WWE’s “Top Star”, made out to be this nigh-unbeatable monster, even being given the honor of ending Taker’s streak (which STILL makes me sick). He has earned or deserved zero of what he’s gotten since his return, yet Vince continues to pay him and be seemingly obsessed with him. And who knows, for all we honestly know, he might stick around some MORE after WM, even though he was rumored to be leaving as far back as LAST WM. Because why not? Why would he go actually put in work to fight or do anything else, when he gets paid more than perhaps any other wrestler in the entire INDUSTRY, yet only wrestles a handful of times a year.
