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.

Rollins made a name for himself in the independent scene as Tyler Black before signing with WWE. He rose to superstardom in WWE, but Rollins has never forgotten his own roots.

A fan took to Twitter and said that it might be an unpopular opinion, but he simply felt that Seth Rollins looks down on the independent wrestling circuit.

“Might be an unpopular opinion but I feel like Seth looks down upon indy wrestling these days although that’s where he’s come from and what gave him his first shot.”


Seth Rollins saw the fan’s tweet and decided to reply to it as he made it clear that Rollins never looks down on independent wrestling. In fact, he helps the industry by actively supporting it via his own wrestling school.

“I train up and coming independent wrestlers at my school…that I’ve owned and operated for nearly a decade. Not only do I NOT look down on the indies, but I actively support them with my time and effort. I’ll stand for a lot of malarkey on this app, but don’t cross that line.”

Seth Rollins became the #1 contender for Big E’s WWE Championship recently on Monday Night RAW. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to beat Big E for the title, whenever the match takes place.
