“There’s been a lot of disrespect going around lately, I feel like,” Rollins mentioned throughout a backstage interview on WWE’s YouTube channel final week. “The Fiend, I get it, he’s cool man. He’s fresh and he’s new and he’s got this cult following and that just puts a chip on my shoulder. I just feel like I’m out here every single week busting my back, breaking my back, putting this whole company on my back sometimes, and I don’t get the respect that I deserve cause there’s this new flavor of ice cream. And the dude’s scary, I get that too.”
“I don’t know what it’s gonna take at Crown Jewel to put him away, but I’m going to do whatever it takes to survive and prevail cause it’s kind of what I do. Tonight was a test, I got through it and I feel fully prepared going into Crown Jewel.”
Rollins continued his quiet discontent for the followers throughout his look on Corey Graves’ After The Bell.
“You could go back, shoot, six months, you could go back a year. A year ago from Hell in a Cell… I was everybody’s favorite,” Rollins mentioned. Those identical people who find themselves panning Hell in a Cell and speaking about how Seth Rollins will not be cool are the identical individuals who had been clamoring for me to be the guy to face Brock Lesnar going into WrestleMania, so I do not know what modified… aside from the truth that I turned the person that they wished me to be after which they hated me for it.
“And so, it’s a very fickle audience, it is what it is. But to answer your question directly, it feels awful. It’s not a good feeling to go out there and put your body on the line,” he added. “And not just at Hell in a Cell, but every single night for the past however many years that I’ve been doing it. I’ve gone out and compete at an extremely high level and dare I say I’m one of the very best at my job. And I do what I have to do when I have to do it. And look, it’s not always pretty. But you go out there and you do your job and you do it well and people don’t like it and they kinda forget that it is what it is. And so it hurts your feelings. You’re a human being and you work hard. It’s fine, it’s art, you can have your opinion it, but man, it’s a tough pill to swallow some times.”
