Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him hone his craft before making his way to WWE. Rollins’ current obnoxious heel character never fails to annoy fans. On top of that, Rollins really doesn’t do scripted promos as such, just like Roman Reigns.
The main event of WrestleMania 35 saw Becky Lynch squaring off against Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey for the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championships in the first women’s main event in WrestleMania history.
Lynch won the match and became a dual champion. In the first match of the night, Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship as well.
While speaking during Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Seth Rollins admitted that it ‘hurt’ him as he expected to main event WrestleMania 35 instead of Becky Lynch.
“We’re both vying for that main-event spot and I remember Becky gets the call that they’re going to put the women on last. I’ll be honest with you, that hurt me. I thought this was gonna be my year, man. I’m getting this match with Brock, and if you have a world title match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, 99 out of 100 times that’s going on last, except this year when my wife was as hot as any babyface has ever been and she’s got a perfect foil in Ronda Rousey.”
Both Rollins’ and Lynch’s matches were well received and in the end, that is what truly matted. Rollins has made peace with the fact and he was simply happy for Becky Lynch in the end.
