• RAW Champion Wants To Be In The Same Conversation As Stone Cold Steve Austin & Hulk Hogan
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, new United States Champion Seth Rollins (of the Monday Night RAW brand) revealed that he wants to have the greatest legacy of every pro-wrestler ever, including the likes of ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart and ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels.
Needless to say that chances of that actually happening are absolutely ZERO for quite a few reasons, with the biggest reason being that he came up during the PG-Era when professional wrestling wasn’t drawing the big numbers in the United States anymore, as those days (Golden Era & Attitude Era) were long gone by then.
Here’s what Rollins had to say:
“What is this mortal life if not the pursuit of legacy?
That’s a quote I recently read, and it really defines my mindset about this industry. I will always have a chip on my shoulder, no matter what. No matter how many titles I’ve won, no matter who I’m working with or how many times I’ve headlined WrestleMania, I’ll always have that chip on my shoulder.
That is my addiction, that struggle. Some people hate the suffering, but I’m a sucker for it. It makes me always want to be a part of this wild business. I want to be the best. I want to have the greatest legacy of all time. I want to be in the same conversation as Flair, Hogan, Austin, Rock, Michaels and Hart, if not lead the conversation. That might be lofty, but I don’t know any other way.
I’m just entering my prime. I’m not as young as I used to be, and my style is a lot different than what it was 10 years ago when I was breaking into WWE, and especially different from when I was on the indies, but my mind is so much sharper than it’s ever been, and I haven’t lost a step. I’m really hitting my stride, and I’ve got a lot more in the tank for these next 5 to 10 years.
The last 10 months have been a fun adventure for me, especially coming out of COVID and the empty arenas and the ThunderDome. Getting back in front of a crowd again has been amazing, and I’ve been able to share the ring with such talented dance partners who are willing to take risks and tell fun stories.
I’ve got a company that’s behind me and allows me to do that. I think I’m having the best year of my career, and I also think it’s just the beginning.”
