4. Raw Star On Causing A Stir By Saying He Wants To Face The Rock At WrestleMania, GFW Impact Draws Record Viewership Again

Raw Star On Causing A Stir By Saying He Wants To Face The Rock At WrestleMania

During a recent appearance on Off The Board podcast, Raw Superstar Seth Rollins talked about wanting to face The Rock, his WWE World Title win at WrestleMania 31 & more. Below are the highlights:

On causing a stir when he said he’d like to face The Rock at WrestleMania:
“I think everyone respects Rock He’s obviously been in our industry his entire life in some form or fashion. He’s a guy that works really hard and most of our performers can appreciate that one way or another, whether it’s in the movie industry or our industry. He’s a legend, Hall of Famer, dude who’s paved the way for generations of us to be pro wrestlers, so I think it’s really cool for me when he comes back and being able to work with him in any capacity.”

On how he felt when he was told he’d be winning the WWE Title at WrestleMania 31:

“I reacted with excitement and a sense of responsibility knowing I was gonna be the guy leaving WrestleMania with the WWE world heavyweight championship and I was gonna be responsible moving forward for filling arenas. For me, it was a great honor and great distinction and something that I’m super proud of, but it wasn’t like all of a sudden they sat down and told me this is what was gonna happen. It was a longer story than that. I was told halfway through the show at I was winning the Title.”
