Seth Rollins gave Cody Rhodes a simple handshake and walked away on last night’s WWE Monday Night Raw. Rollins and Cody competed in Rhodes’ return to WWE at WrestleMania 38. In the aftermath. Rollins said he wants to see anybody else who wants to prove themselves come into WWE.

It was reported that Rollins’ handshake was a symbolic welcoming of Cody Rhodes back to the ‘big leagues.’ Now, Seth has used those exact words to invite anyone outside of the company to try their hand in the big time. Rollins said that WWE is the major league, whether fans want to believe it or not.

Seth Rollins was a guest on The Gorilla Position, where he talked extensively about his match with Cody Rhodes. Rollins said he respected what Cody was able to do. Seth believes Rollins returned as a bigger star than ever before.

“Anybody who wants to come work in the big leagues. I said it to him [zt WrestleMania], I’ve said it before, this is the premier professional wrestling company on the planet. I know, ‘Don’t say professional wrestling,’ doesn’t matter. We have the best in the world and now we have Cody Rhodes on top of that and he is joining that club.


If you want to be the best, don’t go play rinky-dink, come here, do your thing here. We are the best, top notch, across the board. I’m not taking anything away from anybody else or anywhere else, I love it, do what you do, you guys are tremendous and there are great talents out there, but this is where you are the best. This is where you find out if you can hack it on the top top level.”

Rollins’ words were an obvious shot at WWE’s biggest competitor, All Elite Wrestling. Cody Rhodes was one of the promotion’s founders, along with Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks. Cody has huge ambitions for his latest WWE run. Seth Rollins would love to see others follow in his footsteps.
