• Seth Rollins On If A Shield Triple Threat Match Is A Dream WrestleMania Main Event For Him

During a recent interview with Planeta Wrestling, Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins talked about former NXT Champion Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas joining SmackDown Live, his dream WrestleMania main event match and if he would like to face Daniel Bryan.

Below are the highlights:

On Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas joining SmackDown Live:

“Andrade is fantastic. He is one of those guys who came into NXT from Mexico with a big buzz about him. It kind of took him a minute to find out who he was, find his footing, but I think obviously over the past six months to a year he has found out who he was and now he is on the best run of his career.”

On if a Shield Triple Threat match is a dream WrestleMania main event match for him:

“Of course. That is always the dream. Big Shield triple threat match would be pretty special. I’m looking for Seth Rollins to have his name on the marquee on the main event at WrestleMania, and if those gentlemen want to join me I’m sure we would all have a great time.”

On if he would like to face Daniel Bryan:

“Absolutely. I am very happy for Daniel Bryan returning to a WWE ring. I thought it never would happen, and now to be able to see him and get a second chance to live his dream, I would love to be out there in the ring with him. It’d be a good time.”

• RAW Star Didn’t Work Greatest Royal Rumble Event In Order To Respect The Culture Of Saudi Arabia

It should be noted that RAW wrestler Sami Zayn didn’t work the Greatest Royal Rumble event because he’s from Syria and Saudi Arabia broke ties with Syria back in 2012.

So just like the Women’s Division, Zayn wasn’t brought to the Greatest Royal Rumble to respect to the local culture of Saudi Arabia, according to ProWrestlingSheet.

Below is a statement that WWE issued regarding this:

“WWE is committed to embracing individuals from all backgrounds while respecting local customs and cultural differences around the world.”
