Seth Rollins Mocks The Rock’s Promo Style

Seth Rollins has no problem taking shots at The Rock, especially when it comes to the promos that sound repetitive.

Ever since the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Press Event took place, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins has shown his support to his fellow Raw superstar, the 2024 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes.

That was the night when the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns said he would defend his title against The Rock at WrestleMania 40 even though it was Cody’s choice. Cody said he would be the one to challenge Reigns at WrestleMania 40.

After some words were exchanged, The Rock slapped Cody in the face and Rollins also got involved by getting Rock’s face. Rollins has since informed Cody that he will fight Rock & Reigns with him.

In an interview with Submission Radio that was recorded prior to WWE Elimination Chamber, Rollins said that The Rock is rattled and took some shots at the promos that Rock does, which are a reminder of what Rock would say in his WWE prime in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

“Yeah, I mean, look, he’s rattled, man. He’s rattled. He’s shook. He came in here thinking he’s going to do whatever he wanted to do. so now he’s trying to throw his weight around and he’s got all the same insults that he’s had for the last 20 years. It’s kind of sad in some ways. But he wants to run his mouth, dude. He’s going to get whooped.”

“I mean, he’s a specimen, but the dude’s out of practice. He hasn’t wrestled in 10 years. I mean, I’m the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. He couldn’t lace my boots in his best days, let alone now. So he can run his mouth all he wants when he wants to show up. I dare him to put hands on me, because he slapped me the way he slapped Cody. If nobody was there to hold me back, oh, baby. I’d be clawing his eyes out of his head. Rey Mysterio, poof, eat your heart out, you know what I mean?”

Seth Rollins Comments On State Of WWE Business

This wasn’t the first time that Seth Rollins took a shot at The Rock since he recently said Rock couldn’t lace his boots.

Seth Rollins also talked about how WWE is doing as a company right now.

“It’s a great time. Business is good. We are here in Perth. It’s going to be a fantastic Elimination Chamber. I am excited to be right in the middle of all that. I’ve never taken a world title into WrestleMania, so I’m stoked to be not in the Chamber and just watching six guys tear each other apart to try to get a shot at my title and at me in a marquee match on the biggest show in the history of our industry.”

“So, I mean, I love it. Then you got The Rock back here talking his smack. You got Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes. I mean, we’re in the middle of one of the greatest runs in the history of our industry, and I am psyched to be dead smack in the middle of it.”

At WWE Elimination Chamber this past Saturday, Seth Rollins said he was days away from being cleared to wrestle again after suffering a knee injury in early January. At WrestleMania 40, Rollins will defend the World Heavyweight Title against the Men’s Elimination Chamber winner Drew McIntyre, who picked up that victory in controversial fashion.
