Post-WrestleMania RAW is one of the biggest wrestling events of the year, with fans eagerly anticipating each match and segment. However, for Seth Rollins, the show was not without its frustrations. In fact, Rollins was so unhappy with the last-minute changes made to the show that he walked out of the ring and the show altogether.

During Rollins’ entrance, the show cut to a commercial break, which led to Rollins having an animated discussion with ringside crew during the break. Fans were left wondering exactly what had happened. When “RAW” returned, Rollins soaked in more of the serenade and walked out of the ring to the back without saying a word.

During a recent episode of the “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast, host Freddie Prinze Jr. and his co-host Jeff Dye shared their eyewitness account of the incident. According to Dye, you could hear Seth Rollins freak out some after they ran a commercial during his intro.

“They played a commercial during his intro, and then we could kind of hear him having a freak-out on some … production people. He was going ‘Why is there a commercial?!’ You couldn’t really hear what he was saying. You could just tell he was mad.”


“He said, ‘What the hell is going on?!’ I saw that coming out of his mouth,” Prinze added. “I think he was more pissed than pissed at them. I think he was pissed when he went backstage at whoever did that. But if I was him, I would’ve been just as angry, and I thought the way he dealt with it was so hardcore and awesome. Instead of cutting a promo, he just throws the mic out of the ring and walked out — and walked out of the friggin’ show.”

Rollins’ frustration with WWE’s last-minute changes is not a new phenomenon. Wrestlers and fans alike have long complained about the company’s tendency to make significant changes to shows at the last minute, often without warning. While WWE’s creative process has been a topic of debate for years, the incident with Rollins at WrestleMania 39 highlights just how frustrating it can be for those involved.

As for the fallout from Rollins’ walkout, it’s unclear what the long-term implications will be.
