Seth Rollins recently spoke with South China Morning Post to promote WWE’s upcoming Shangai show where he discussed a range of topics.
On Dean Ambrose’s injury helping him:
“Being part of the Shield is a special thing. Any time the three of us are healthy and in the same place we can get into some trouble. Not that I would wish injury on Ambrose at all, but that was something that lit a fire underneath me. It’s definitely been a blessing in disguise for my singles career. It was like OK, I’ve got to kind of refocus, reset my priorities and move forward. I was presented with some cool opportunities early in the year.”
His future goals:
“Right now my focus is Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I want all the gold because I do. I’m definitely focused on winning back the Intercontinental championship, but the Universal championship is in my sight some point in the future. I would love to ride that wave to maybe a champ versus champ match depending on who comes out on top between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. We’ll see. At the end of day it’s all about wining and building a legacy, and I’ve been a dual champion before.”
His success this year and who compares:
“Yeah, it’s been a really good year for me. Honestly, you look at my body of work from SummerSlam last year to SummerSlam this year – I really don’t think there’s anybody on the main roster, aside from an AJ Styles give or take, that can compare with what I’ve done. From winning the tag team titles, to winning the Intercontinental title at Mania, to the gauntlet match performance on Raw, to some of the matches I’ve been a part of the last six months, nobody can hold a candle to what I’ve done in the ring. I definitely feel I’m back on top for sure.”
