WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has praised Seth Rollins for “creating beautiful work” over the last year.
Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle’s highly personal feud reached new depths on the latest edition of Raw when Rollins brought up Riddle’s children while Riddle preferred to discuss The Visionary’s wife, Becky Lynch.
The pair were interrupted before things went any further by UFC legend Daniel Cormier, who is set to act as the special guest referee when Rollins and Riddle enter the Fight Pit at Extreme Rules.
Following the show, Booker T heaped praise on Rollins during Raw Talk, saying the star has created great work over the course of 2022 despite not having held any titles.
“Riddle is going to be stepping into his comfort zone in the Fight Pit. This is familiar territory for Riddle. But I must say, Seth Rollins is the most dangerous Seth Rollins that I’ve ever seen right now at this point.”
“No titles, or anything like that but Seth Rollins has been creating some beautiful, beautiful work over these past 365 days setting himself up for this very moment. Everybody has got a bullseye on Seth Rollins.”
At the start of the year, Rollins had his sights on the WWE Championship, having two unsuccessful challenges for the gold at Day 1 and Elimination Chamber.
On top of these, he also attempted to bring a premature end to Roman Reigns’ record Universal Championship run at the Royal Rumble but again came up short.
He then began a desperate quest to get onto the card at WrestleMania 38, eventually agreeing to face a mystery opponent who turned out to be a returning Cody Rhodes.
However, Rhodes not only took the win at WrestleMania but also in two rematches including a vicious Hell in a Cell bout.
