Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him improve himself prior to making his way to WWE. He has now become one of the most dependable stars in the company.
The Visionary has squared off against numerous top talent since 2011. Last year, Rollins was engaged in a bitter feud with former WWE Superstar Cesaro. It culminated in a match at WrestleMania, where Cesaro won.
While speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Seth Rollins talked about his feud with Cesaro. Rollins admitted that he regrets the feud being incomplete and not going in a different direction.
“I was still trying to gather what the character was going to be coming out of my return from…I got punted in the face at Survivor Series, left the Messiah character behind, came back as this Visionary but wasn’t really certain what it was going to look like. Got into the story with Cesaro. I was still piecing it together. I had ideas of what I thought it could be, but it didn’t really take hold until the Edge story. The Edge story was so deep and I had all these different emotions to play off of. The Cesaro story had so many legs and different directions we could have taken it and one of my biggest regrets is I didn’t press hard enough to do that. I feel that’s an untapped story.
If we ever cross paths again, there is such a great story we could get to. It went one way, it was fine and fun and produced a WrestleMania banger, but we had a lot more we could have done there. The Edge story sort of brought out the best. Edge and I are similar, on-screen and backstage, we have similar mindsets and because I was working with him, someone who is very trusted, I was allowed…my character had already planted seeds in the ground, I was allowed to be a little more off the rails. It just blossomed from there.”
Seth Rollins also managed to defeat Matt Riddle at WWE Clash At The Castle. We will have to wait and see whether they will continue their feud, as it seems likely it isn’t over just yet.
