• Raw Champion Reveals Which Match Put Him On The Map, Hopes To Be In The Royal Rumble Match This Year
During a recent interview with Amarillo Globe-News, Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins talked about his dream WrestleMania opponent, Shield reunion, the match that put him on the map & more.
Below are the highlights:
On who he’d like to face at WrestleMania:
“There are a ton of guys I’d love to work with at a WrestleMania. For me, I want to be in the main event of WrestleMania selling the tickets to that show. Whether it’s Brock Lesnar or AJ Styles. Either one of those guys I’d love to look toward being in the ring with when the time comes.”
On The Shield reunion:
“To see the scale in which people were excited about it was pretty cool. I wasn’t really anticipating how incredible it was. It was a nice experience and kind of surreal. It was just awesome to be out there with those guys again and get that reaction.”
On wanting to enter the Royal Rumble match this year:
“The Royal Rumble is always a fantastic event. I always have great memories from it. I haven’t been in the Royal Rumble match for three years now I think. Last year I was banned by Triple H, then I was hurt the year before. The year before that I was in a triple-threat match with Brock Lesnar and John Cena for the WWE championship.
Again, the Royal Rumble is pretty awesome, so I’m hoping I can get in this year. The last time I was in there, I started No. 2 and lasted almost an hour. I want to be in there and be part of the chaos. It’s a blast.”
On if Royal Rumble 2015 match against Brock Lesnar & John Cena put him on the map:
“Yeah, I’d say so. It was my first opportunity to hang with the guys in the upper echelon. When you see what Brock has accomplished inside and outside of the ring. Then you look at John and everything he’s done. I was kind of the oddball in that pairing.
The third wheel so to speak. I wanted to prove I could hold my own and I could be the guy to make that match what it was. I wanted to prove I could compete on that level with those guys. It was cool for me to have that moment. I felt I belonged.”
