Seth Rollins has revealed that his time in WWE has not always been plain sailing.
The current World Heavyweight Champion has had multiple iconic WWE moments while being with the company, which have included one of the greatest Money in the bank cash-ins of all time and reigning with the top championship 5 times.
Unfortunately for The Visionary, there have been some career moments that will likely not be featured in any Hall of Fame packages, such as the critically panned Eye for an Eye match against Rey Mysterio and being a part of one of the worst Hell in a Cell matches in history against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.
Rollins recently spoke to Sports Illustrated to promote SummerSlam. Surprisingly, neither of the above matches made The Visionary as angry as at the start of 2022. Seth Rollins would detail how multiple changes between January and April resulted in the champion feeling very frustrated with the creative process.
“I would say the beginning of 2022 was the most angry I’ve ever been. There were two or three instances that, I’m not going to get into specifically, but essentially from the Day 1 pay-per-view to getting the match with Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania — that process was very frustrating for me. It ended in a good way, and we got into a good place, but getting there was not ideal, and I very much voiced my concerns at that point in time.”
“There was a six-week window where everything I was told was changing from week to week,”
At the Day One Premium Live Event Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley and Kevin Owens were all scheduled to challenge Big E for the WWE Championship, while Brock Lesnar was due to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. Due to Reigns contracting COVID, the match was cancelled and Lesnar was instead inserted into the WWE title match, making the bout a 5-Way. Lesnar would win that match, setting up a winner takes all title unification match at Wrestlemania 38.
Following Day 1, Rollins appeared to be without direction going into the biggest show on the WWE calendar. The former Universal Champion was without an opponent for the show, with his status unknown until Cody Rhodes officially signed with the company following a shocking departure from AEW.
Unfortunately for Rollins, some frustrations still appear to remain in the present day. The Revolutionary has explained what happened during the infamous segment on the Raw after WrestleMania 39.
Can Seth Rollins Beat Roman Reigns?
Rollins has the unique accolade of being one of a select few people who have a televised victory over Roman Reigns. The former Shield member would dress in the combat gear once again to play mind games with The Tribal Chief. The effect would work too well, as Rollins would frustrate Reigns enough to cause The Head of the Table to get disqualified.
