Seth Rollins is in a marquee match at SummerSlam, but he’s not in a contest with a veteran performer like himself. He is taking on Rey Mysterio’s son Dominik Mysterio in the 23-year-old’s first WWE match.
Rollins runs a pro wrestling school called Black & Brave in Iowa. He loves training young pro wrestlers and making sure that they have a foundation to help the business carry on for years.
While speaking to Bleacher Report, The Monday Night Messiah spoke about his desire to help younger talents. This is something that he sees as very important as the company continues building toward their future.
“I think, for me, the next step is just to help out younger guys and younger talent and get the company in a really good place so if I do decide to step away at some point in the future, there will be people there to handle it and take over and make sure things go well and so they can pass on that information to the next group as well.”
“It’s just helping out younger guys. With my wrestling school, I try to do the same thing. At the end of the day, I want wrestling to be awesome. I want to take this show through the roof.”
Seth Rollins realizes that he won’t be an active WWE Superstar forever. The pro wrestling business needs younger stars to step into those spots as they vacate. He wants pro wrestling “to be awesome” and he’s doing what he can at SummerSlam while working with a talent like Dominik Mysterio who is likely to be green at best.
