Seth Rollins has been given a lot of opportunities in WWE. SummerSlam is a stage he has thrived on several times before. He finally got a big match he was jonesing for in WWE at last year’s biggest party of the Summer.
While speaking to BT Sport, The Monday Night Messiah was asked which one of his SummerSlam encounters rank the highest on his list. Rollins listed a few of them off, but then admitted that his showdown with Brock Lesnar probably tops them all.
“Oh, man. I’ve had some real bangers there. To be honest with you, any time you beat John Cena with the help of John Stewart, that’s pretty sick. I think that myself and Ambrose, Jon Moxley, had maybe one of the greatest lumberjack matches in the history of lumberjack matches at SummerSlam the year prior. But, I finally got the match I wanted out to have out of Brock Lesnar last year at SummerSlam. That’s the one I’ve been jonesing for since I got put in the situation to work with Brock. My back was up against the wall. I went into Toronto and started to get some strong backlash from our hardcore audience and ended up turning them during the course of the match, and beat Brock in a real hell of a fight, just a real hell of a fight that I thought was awesome. That one was tough so I might have to go with that one, to be honest with you.”
Seth Rollins will face Dominik Mysterio at this year’s SummerSlam. We’ll have to see how Rollins eventually ranks that match against wrestling the Beast Incarnate. Rollins found himself in an interesting situation once again as he told Dominik Mysterio that he can bring his kendo stick along with him on August 23rd.
