Seth Rollins Admits “There’s Always A Chip On My Shoulder”

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins doesn’t like being painted with the “secondary” brush either.

Rollins is the current World Heavyweight Champion in WWE and has been the only holder of that title since it was re-introduced by Triple H in May. While Seth Rollins carries that title on Monday Night Raw, there is a lot of work to be done to get that title to the level of the WWE Universal Championship that has headlined countless shows around the waist of Roman Reigns.

But hard work is not something Seth Rollins shies away from and admits even when things are going perfectly, he’ll find something to take issue with.

“There’s always a chip on my shoulders” – Seth Rollins

Speaking with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, Seth Rollins admitted he always feels a chip on his shoulder and will always feel that way as long as other people get credit for business being up in WWE:

“Oh, there’s always a chip on my shoulder. It never goes away. I’m never just coasting, I’m never just okay with being okay. If it’s not wanting to win a world championship or establish a world championship, now I’ve got people, as you mentioned, calling my world championship a secondary world championship. So now I’m out here trying to prove everybody wrong on that end.

“I’m not gonna be naive and think that we ain’t got a lot of work to do. Establishing a new title is difficult work. It is a hard job, and somebody’s gotta do it, and I am very honored to have the responsibility to be the guy to do that.

“So there’s always a chip on my shoulder. Anytime we go to any arena in the country and anybody else gets credit for filling a house or being on top or popping a rating or anything like that, I’m always gonna feel slighted by it. Not in a way that I’m jealous. I’m thrilled. Business is huge. We are the hottest ticket in town. Anywhere we go, we’re sold out left and right. Houses are up, ratings are up. It’s crazy to be a part of WWE right now.

“But I’m always wanting to be the guy, always wanting to be the marquee, whatever it is, that’s where I want to be. If I feel like I’m not there, I’m gonna be hustling. I’m like Michael Jordan. I’m gonna find something, even if there’s nothing, even if there’s everything cooking, cruising perfectly, I’m gonna go out and I’m gonna find something to piss me off.

“I’m gonna find something that I can sink my teeth into. I’m gonna make an enemy out of somebody so that I got something to work for. That’s just how I operate, that’s how I flow. I don’t know how to do it any other way.”

Seth Rollins will put his gold on the line at SummerSlam when he defends the World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor.
