Seth Rollins has scathingly hit back at WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T over comments claiming he had it relatively easy and there was plenty of help on his ascent to the top.

Over the last few months, Seth Rollins has been embroiled in battle with the returning Cody Rhodes. Having lost to ‘The American Nightmare’ at WrestleMania 38, The pair squared off again at WrestleMania Backlash, with Rhodes once again able to pick up the win when he took a leaf out of Rollins’ playbook and reversed a rollup with a handful of tights.

The two are set to do battle one more time at Hell In A Cell, with the match taking place inside the demonic steel structure in a contest which many feel will settle the rivalry for the time being.

Speaking on Raw Talk after the most recent edition of Monday Night Raw, Booker T ruffled feathers when he commented that not only did Rollins need the win more but had so far had a relatively easy ride to the top of the mountain.

Of course Seth Rollins needs this win more. I mean, right now, Cody Rhodes is 2-0 heading into the rubber match. I must say, Cody Rhodes, he’s not one of those guys that had that easy route, he had to work for everything. Seth Rollins is a guy who made it to the top relatively easily, I must say he had a lot of help. Cody had to break himself down, and rebuild himself and that’s the Cody Rhodes that we see today.

Seth Rollins has been quick to respond to the comment, making it clear that he worked extremely hard before he even made it to WWE.

This narrative is false. I started wrestling at 18 years old in back rooms of bars, in pole barns, at UAW Halls, the occasional parking lot. Lost money. Broke bones. Drove countless hours alone just to build a name that got erased the second I walked in the WWE door.

So far there are only two contests confirmed for Hell In A Cell, with Asuka beating Becky Lynch on the 16th May 2022 edition of Monday Night Raw to earn a shot at Bianca Belair’s Raw Women’s Championship.
