• Backstage Reaction Towards Seth Rollins Defending WWE
As we noted before, Universal Champion Seth Rollins stood up for WWE on Twitter by saying that WWE features the best pro wrestling on the planet and that nobody can perform at the level that he does on a constant basis (tap here to read more).
According to a report from Tom Colohue, majority of the WWE locker room was in favor of Rollins defending the company that he works for.
One WWE wrestler was quoted saying:
“He [Rollins] doesn’t speak for all of us but he speaks for a lot of us. Why shouldn’t you love coming to work every day?”
While another WWE wrestler said the following:
“Jon [Moxley] wasn’t happy. People just expect I’m not happy too. I love wrestling and that’s what I’m doing so I’m happy.”
I don’t care about goodwill, Wade. I care about respect. And if some kid who thinks he’s got it all figured out wants to step to me, then he’s gonna get patted on the head and sent on his way. And so will you. https://t.co/93grZHKHDs
