• Seth Rollins Wanted To Strangle Vince McMahon After Hell In A Cell 2019, Bray Wyatt Comments
During his appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Seth Rollins discussed the infamous “no contest” ending to his Hell in a Cell match against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in 2019.
Here’s what Rollins said:
“My vision for what that was going to be was a lot different than what we had to go out there and do. We went out there, and did what we were told to do, to the best of our ability.
I put a positive spin on it now that I can look back at it a year and a half later, but at the time — I came through that curtain and I was ready to strangle Vince McMahon.
I’m not kidding you. I’m not kidding you, TJ Wilson was there to hold me back. I stared right into Vince’s eyes — you know where he sits in that chair over there [in Gorilla] — I look at him, he looked at me, we didn’t say a single word to each other and he walked out.
I sat there with Paul Heyman — and also, he was Creative Director at the time of RAW — so I sat down there with him and we had a conversation. He was ‘Paul Heyman’ing me, if you will.
Then, the next day I went into Vince’s office — much calmer — and I said, ‘Let’s talk about this. We need to figure out what we’re doing here, because that can’t happen again.’ It was civil, but it took me a night [to calm down], but I was ready to go.
Man, if somebody wasn’t there making sure I was okay — my temper, I mean, the adrenaline. In my head, if you go back to that match, I’m convinced if it would have went our way, this wouldn’t be on that [worst matches] list.”
Wyatt tweeted the following about it:
“Wait until you hear my reaction.”
