Seth Rollins Talks About Wanting to Face The Rock at WrestleMania, Winning WWE Title at WrestleMania 31, More

Former WWE Champion Seth Rollins recently spoke with Sports Illustrated‘s Off The Board podcast about various topics. Here are the highlights.

On wanting 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 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.”
