Seth Rollins: “Not Everyone Is Equipped To Handle The Rigors of WWE”

0

WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins recently sat down with the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast to address Jon Moxley’s criticism of his former stomping grounds. Rollins said that while Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose) can “say whatever he wants,” but suggested Moxley was “not equipped to handle the rigors of WWE,” and that he didn’t agree with taking shots at “the company that gave him such an opportunity.”

“Ambrose can do what he wants. He’s a big boy, he’s got his big boy pants on. He can go out there and say whatever he wants, but the bottom line is not everybody’s equipped to handle the rigors of WWE and the schedule and how it affects you mentally and emotionally. And Ambrose gave everything he had to the company for the entire time he was here. He put his heart and soul into the travel, into the schedule, into the injuries, into the work in the ring and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, he took his ball and he went home, or he went elsewhere at least. And I think it’s a little presumptuous of him to get on a podcast and talk down about the company that gave him such an opportunity.”

Rollins also spoke about making his voice heard backstage in WWE, and how he’s satisfied with his current role because he “make[s]a point to be satisfied with it.”

“Absolutely I’m satisfied with it because I make a point to be satisfied with it. I make a point to contribute my ideas and my thoughts, and if I feel strongly about something the way it should be or the way it should be portrayed, then I will make my voice heard. And look, not everybody gets that leeway. And also, not everybody should get that leeway. That’s not how it works. You have to build equity with your audience, with your boss, with your co-workers. You have to build equity over time and then you can get the leeway to have that kind of say in your story if that’s your complaint. Or you can just stand up for yourself and do it instead of going on somewhere else and b—hing about it. I’m very satisfied with the amount of input I have. Do I do things that I don’t always want to do? Yes, but you know what, sometimes that stuff works because I can’t see things perfectly every single time. I don’t have the perspective that other people around me have. Vince McMahon has been doing this 20 years longer than I’ve been alive. So he’s got some ideas and he knows things that I just don’t know that I have to learn.”
