Seth Rollins talks Roman Reigns’ battle with leukemia; NXT stars with bright futures

The Architect Seth Rollins has had a tumultuous couple of weeks with Roman Reigns stepping away due to leukemia and Ambrose turning on him after being crowned as RAW Tag Team Champions. Rollins made it to the semi-finals of the WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel before being eliminated by Dolph Ziggler in the semi-finals.

Rollins spoke with Al Arabiya English during his time in Saudi Arabia. The Intercontinental Champion spoke about The Big Dog’s second battle with leukemia and claimed that the last couple of weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotions. Rollins said:

“It threw everything up in the air. It’s hard to go a day without thinking about him and how he’s doing and hoping he’s doing alright. I’m fighting the urge to check in on him like a brother every two hours, but he’s a strong dude, and I know that he’s in a good place mentally as well as physically. He’s in good health for the most part. I think he’s going to be able to fight this thing pretty strong. We’re just getting through it while we can. Obviously it’s going to be easier as time goes on, but certainly the last couple weeks have been, and last week especially, have been a rollercoaster of emotions. Lots of ups and downs.”

The RAW tag-team champion also went on to reveal the stars from NXT that have the potential to make it big in the future. The inaugural NXT Champion said:

“There’s a ton of guys down there with absolutely incredible potential. Shayna Baszler is one of those people who I never got a chance to watch that much, but I saw her on the NXT show last Sunday and I was blown away. I think she’s fantastic. I think Velveteen Dream is really good—he’s got something wacky about him. I’ve always been a fan of Ricochet. I’ve known him since he was a 17-year-old kid from Paducah, Kentucky. I’ve always thought the world of him and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in the future. The whole Undisputed Era, I think those guys are fantastic. I think there’s a lot of talent down in NXT that has the chance to make waves when they move up to the main roster.”
