Seth Rollins recently fired back against the indie wrestling scene and pulled Jon Moxley into things specifically. This was certainly a big shot to fire in this new pro wrestling war.
Fans should probably get used to this because WWE is capable of throwing some pretty heavy shots, especially when they see any kind of threat.
Dave Meltzer explained during Wrestling Observer Radio how Seth Rollins’ statements that he made against Jon Moxley are being viewed outside of the WWE bubble. Due to the amount of things that Rollins said which sounded like it came straight from Vince McMahon it’s pretty easy to see who sent Rollins on this mission.
“Okay, I’ll just say the reaction I got from people in the business, okay… everybody knows that [Seth] has kinda decided he’s gonna be a team leader and he’s been picked. I mean his words are Vince’s words so is he just 100% in on the Kool-Aid or is he just doing his job? Again, if this was like a tweet and then Sports Illustrated — this is like a battleplan and WWE is part of the battleplan. He’s not doing this on his own, I mean if this was just Twitter he’d still have to get the okay.”
“When you include the Sports Illustrated thing at the same time this is the ‘No, we’re fighting back against these people who are trying to say that we’re not good and again, more power to him — that’s fine.”
“Again the running down of Moxley with the idea that he took his ball and went home — which is a Vince McMahon term if anybody remembers that’s Vince McMahon’s term for a quitter — this guy [Moxley] didn’t quit, he stuck it out I think that’s the thing, you know? Even if he didn’t he’s miserable.”
This falls in line to what Vince McMahon does as well because when Steve Austin left in 2002 they picked Jim Ross and The Rock to bury him on television. Therefore, this fits in McMahon’s wheelhouse in a big way.
It seems like WWE has their own mouthpiece in this pro wrestling war as they sent out Seth Rollins to take some serious shots at his old friend Jon Moxley. Things could get very interesting from this point on as well, but it might not get much better until things get a lot uglier.
