Seth Rollins is one of the most accomplished superstars of the current generation in WWE. While he is one of the very few WWE superstars to be on the top, that wasn’t always the case.
Rollins was interviewed on the Broken Skull Sessions. He revealed a lot of things about his career on WWE, as well as his early days. He said that he used to have a lot of conflicts with former trainer Terry Taylor and revealed that Triple H didn’t see any potential in him in his developmental phase.
Terry is very old school in the sense that he thinks a certain way works, and part of that ideology is sort of shunning what is up and coming instead of embracing it. And I was always like, ‘Hey, the business is changing. You’ve gotta go with it. If you go against it, it’s not gonna help.’ I would just challenge him in little ways every day to the point where I was insubordinate, and Hunter [Triple H] took me aside and was like, ‘Look, I don’t see anything special in you….
Triple H’s lack of belief in him might have been for other reasons. However, Rollins has made it big, and he still has H to thank for it. He added that he convinced Triple H to put the NXT Championship on him.
Three months later, I’m sitting in a room with Hunter and I’m saying, ‘I want that NXT Championship. I wanna be the first one to hold that title. Put it on me and this brand is off and running. If it goes another direction with it, then I don’t know where you’re gonna be in a couple of years.’ And I told him that. I said, ‘I’m the right guy for this. You know that, I know that. Let’s bury this hatchet and let’s make this work.
Seth Rollins recently revealed when his WWE contract is about to expire. He said that when Becky Lynch headlined Wrestlemania 35, he was really sad. The Drip God also revealed that he wanted to strangle Vince McMahon after his Hell-In-The-Cell match against The Fiend.
