Between his two WWE Universal Championship reigns and eight pay-per-view primary occasion victories, Seth Rollins has been the face of WWE all through the majority of 2019. Unfortunately it hasn’t all been easy crusing for “The Beast Slayer.” He’s needed to apologize for feedback made on Twitter, he’s been ridiculed for statements made in interviews and he was booed out of the constructing on Sunday evening after a controversial end to his Hell in a Cell match with Bray Wyatt. And but regardless of the bumps in the highway, one other prime WWE star continues to be impressed with how Rollins has dealt with the function up to now.
In a brand new interview with Sports Illustrated, Roman Reigns spoke about his former Shield tag accomplice has dealt with the hurdles of the job. Reigns discovered himself in the same function in the previous, although the crowd has firmly been on his aspect ever since he returned from his battle with leukemia.
“There is a lot to being the face of WWE,” Reigns stated. “It’s not only about being in the ring. It’s about how you represent, and that is a 24-7, 365 job. You’ve got to be on all the time for 52 weeks a year. But I’m telling you now, my brother is legit.”
“I used to be so proud of him and what he did at SummerSlam towards Brock Lesnar,” he added. “He obviously had one of those weeks where the Twitter machine and the Internet went nuts on him, but he bounced back and answered the call.”
By “one of those weeks” Reigns was probably referring to when Rollins went on a campaign on social media to pronounce that he was the finest wrestler in the world and that WWE had the finest professional wrestling motion in the world. This led to a back-and-forth interplay with Will Ospreay by which Rollins resorted to mentioning how a lot cash he made in comparison with Ospreay. He later apologized.
“Is he passionate?” Reigns stated. “God, yes. Is he blunt? Of course, that’s why I love him. He doesn’t sugarcoat, he’s very honest, and he is passionate, and he was born for professional wrestling.”
“Seth loves the WWE,” he added. “That’s why some people misread some of the things he says or the ways he delivers it, but he does mean well. He’s a workhorse. Yeah, he’s a little live at the mouth sometimes, but he’s got a heart of gold, trust me. Whether he’s on Raw or SmackDown, the WWE is in good hands with him as champion.”
Rollins will participate in the upcoming Team Hogan vs. Team Flair 10-man tag match at Crown Jewel on Oct. 31.
