• Seth Rollins Comments On A Possible “Title vs. Title” Feud With Roman Reigns
During a recent interview with Newsweek, Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins talked about his title defense at the Greatest Royal Rumble, possible “title vs. title” feud with Roman Reigns, bringing back the Curb Stomp & more.
Below are the highlights:
On defending his Intercontinental Title in a Ladder match at the Greatest Royal Rumble:
“Nervous to be honest with you. This is my first IC title defense and you put me in a ladder match with three other guys over at Saudi Arabia in front of a hot crowd. It’s going to be insane. It’s unprecedented, this is the first time we’ve done anything like this. I’m looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity, but a lot can happen in a fatal four-way ladder match.”
On a possible “Title vs. Title” feud with Roman Reigns if Rollins retains the IC Title and Reigns wins the Universal Title at Greatest Royal Rumble:
“I’d absolutely love to get into the ring again with Roman. Without a doubt, he’s one of the top competitors in the entire world and being in the ring with him, whenever any of the SHIELD guys are in the ring at the same time, there’s a special feeling involved. We’ve had some very classic matchups in the past and we’ve gone back and forth before. I think it would be a great time and I’m certainly up for the challenge and I’m certain he would be too.”
On clicking with the audience:
“The crazy thing is, there are a couple of moments. It’s an “over time” thing, because when I broke up the SHIELD it hurt some people, it broke a lot of people’s hearts and it took awhile for people to accept me. But over the last couple of years, starting with the rivalry with Triple H going into last year’s WrestleMania, then the beginning of this year, I feel like I found my footing.
I think people kind of forgot about me, or what I was capable of. The week I had where I had a gauntlet match on RAW, where I put on a 65-minute performance and then Elimination Chamber, people were reminded of what I could do in the ring. Couple that with the matches with Finn Balor on RAW, and now the Triple Threat at WrestleMania 34. I really started to find my footing with the audience, where I want to be anyway. It’s been a slow road, but I feel like I’m exactly where we want to be.”
On bringing back the Curb Stomp:
“You know, I can’t divulge the entire story. Maybe some other time. It’ll be good for a DVD or a Network special or something like that. I will say that I was very happy to see it come back. It wasn’t a long-term plan, I knew way in advance, but I was happy to get it back. That is another thing this year that really put me on a very good trajectory. It felt good, man. The surprise in the audience and the reaction I got online was really cool, too. I’m glad to take it around the world now, it’s been a good experience.”

In the beginning of the above video, it looks like Lesnar is jokingly mocking Reigns by putting up the “L” sign (loser sign) at Reigns (who was sitting in front of him across the table).
