Seth Rollins Comments On Roman Reigns’ Illness, Wanting To Be The Top Star, His Future Goals, More
During an in-depth interview with Al Arabiya English, Intercontinental Champion, Seth Rollins discussed Roman Reigns’ illness and much more.
On Roman Reigns’ illness:
“It threw everything up in the air. It’s hard to go a day without thinking about him and how he’s doing and hoping he’s doing alright. I’m fighting the urge to check in on him like a brother every two hours, but he’s a strong dude, and I know that he’s in a good place mentally as well as physically. He’s in good health for the most part. I think he’s going to be able to fight this thing pretty strong. We’re just getting through it while we can. Obviously it’s going to be easier as time goes on, but certainl,y the last couple weeks have been, and last week especially, have been a rollercoaster of emotions. Lots of ups and downs.”
Wanting to be the top star now:
“With Roman not being on the roster for an indefinite period of time, there’s definitely extra pressure that I put on myself to step into that role. Obviously his shoes are his shoes and nobody is going to fill them, but I put pressure on myself, whether he’s around or not, to go out there and steal the show and have the best match on the card, and push everybody else to that level.
“The thing that sucks about not having Roman, besides not having his camaraderie, is that he is one of the guys that pushes me to be better, because he goes out and gives it his all every single time. Not having him around, I’m feeling that pressure to step it up even more to bring everybody with me so we can try our best to fill the void that the big dog leaves behind.”
His future goals:
I’ve been very fortunate to live out my dreams here in the WWE, but the one thing I have not been able to do is headline a WrestleMania. Obviously if you look back WrestleMania 31 I was able to leave WrestleMania as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but that match wasn’t mine. I got in there and snatched it away from Brock and Roman. I’d like to be the guy on the marquee going into the show. I’d like to be the guy that somebody has to come down and snatch my match away. That’s the one thing that I really haven’t had the opportunity to accomplish just yet. I have a lot of years ahead of me, so we’ll see what the future holds when it comes to headlining WrestleMania’s.
On helping other talent:
“I help out my friends a lot. I shouldn’t say young—because Finn Balor is not young—but he’s a guy I’ve had a lot of time in the ring with and we’ve talked a lot about the business and how we see things going. Sami Zayn too. Then guys down in NXT and I’m seeing how I can help them out as well. With the girls, Bayley is one of my best friends, and I try to help her out as much as I can as well. I’m just around and available for whoever needs some advice. Even the Riott Squad—they need all the help they can get. No I’m kidding, they work hard. I ust feel like I’m a guy that people can come to now. I’ve started to embrace that role, and hopefully will able to do that in the future.”
