Seth Rollins has achieved great success in WWE, clinching numerous world championship titles and engaging in iconic rivalries with some of the industry’s top performers. That being said, he isn’t in the main event of WrestleMania 39 and it seems Rollins feels slighted by this exclusion.
If Roman Reigns defeats Sami Zayn at the WWE Elimination Chamber premium live event, then he is set to defend his titles against Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 39, in what is certainly a highly anticipated match.
While many people are very excited about the upcoming matchup, Seth Rollins isn’t one of them. Seth Rollins even claimed that there is “salt in the wound” when talking about Reigns vs. Rhodes, as he wanted to main event.
While speaking on Sports Guys Talking Wrestling, Seth Rollins said it was hard to talk about the match. Rollins then added that he felt slighted by not being in the main event of WrestleMania 39.
“I don’t know the answer to that question, man (if Cody Rhodes is the one to dethrone Roman Reigns). It’s very hard for me to look at that match unbiased, I think. I want that match, I want that spot, I want that title, and to not have it, there’s a lot of salt in the wound having to talk about it, so it’s difficult for me to analyze.
I will say you’re looking at two — a rock and a hard place, you know? You’ve got Roman Reigns, who’s on an incredible run, but you’ve got Cody Rhodes, who’s riding a lot of momentum,” explained Seth Rollins. “It’s gonna be a generational main event of WrestleMania. Again, hard for me to feel any way but slighted by it, so that is what it is.”
As for Seth Rollins’ plans at WrestleMania 39, it is very likely that he will be squaring off against Logan Paul at the show of shows. We will have to wait and see how their feud will be booked in the coming weeks.
