Seth Rollins got here up brief in his try and win Adam Cole’s NXT Championship on this week’s Monday Night Raw. But the evening was over for “The Beast Slayer” even after the cameras stopped rolling. Following the locker room brawl between the Raw and NXT rosters, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt appeared to defend his newly-won world championship towards Rollins inside a Steel Cage. The match noticed Rollins practically escape by climbing over certainly one of the partitions, just for Wyatt to cease and toss him again right down to the mat together with his Mandible Claw. Moments later he countered Rollins’ Curb Stomp try with the Claw, then hit Sister Abigail for the win.
As has been the case for the previous couple of post-Raw darkish matches, the crowd closely favored Wyatt over Rollins. The four-time world champion admitted in a current interview with Corey Graves that he would not perceive why “fickle” followers have turned on him in the previous couple of months.
“It’s kind of one of these things that, you know, where does it go, what’s the answer, why, why? But it’s sort of like if people don’t get what they want they whine about it on Twitter, right? That’s kind of what happens nowadays,” Rollins stated. “And that occurs with all the things, it is not simply our business, however for those who do one thing and it strikes a twine then it is nearly such as you’re doing the proper factor. I do not even know anymore. It’s a bizarre business, dude. It’s 2019 and I do not know what wrestling seems like anymore, it is a bizarre place, dude.
“You might return, shoot, six months, you could possibly return a 12 months. A 12 months in the past from Hell in a Cell… I used to be everyone’s favourite,” he continued. “Those similar people who find themselves panning Hell in a Cell and speaking about how Seth Rollins isn’t cool are the similar individuals who have 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 indisputable fact that I grew to become the person that they wished me to be after which they hated me for it.
Rollins went on to say, “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. 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.”
After retaining the Universal Championship in controversial style towards “The Fiend” at Hell in a Cell, Rollins dropped the title to Wyatt in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Crown Jewel.
