Seth Rollins said during a recent convention Q&A that if Kenny Omega is done “playing in the minor leagues” and wants to face him at WrestleMania then he’s up for it. That comment about calling AEW “the minor leagues” brought a ton of controversy.
During Grillin’ JR, the WWE Hall Of Fame announcer brought up Seth Rollins’ comment. Needless to say, it was not appreciated by Jim Ross.
“Rollins, he’s got a great spot. He’s blessed. Maybe someday he’ll be as over as his girlfriend — I don’t know. Nonetheless I’ve always liked his work. He’s a solid guy, he’s a solid guy. But saying things like that make him look bad and for that I feel badly. I just do.”
“It’s just a different world, you can’t mix all the different rules and metaphors and apples and oranges and all those crazy ass cliches, man. So for anyone to say, look here’s the thing I find incredulous about this deal, one of the things… he says ‘When you’re through playing in the minor leagues’ ironically, he Mr. [Shad] Khan’s got more money than Vince [McMahon]. But nonetheless that’s another story for another day.”
“We think we’re on a great network with TNT and we think we have a chance to build a nice brand. You’ll never head me, Conrad even when we’re drinking saying we’re gonna kick WWE’s ass. It’s stupid!”
We’ll have to see if Kenny Omega ever ends up in WWE. Since he’s an Executive Vice President of AEW it’s not likely. You can never say never in pro wrestling. In the meantime, if Seth Rollins wanted to drum up some talk by saying what he said then the mission was accomplished.
