Seth Rollins is the Visionary of WWE and has constantly delivered in each and every feud he has been a part of. Rollins is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and takes his role very seriously. That said, it appears he has different intentions for his reign as the champion.
Seth Rollins won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the WWE Night Of Champions Premium Live event, after beating AJ Styles in the finals of the World Heavyweight Title tournament in a stellar match.
Since then, Seth Rollins has successfully defended the title against Damian Priest in solid match this past week on Monday Night RAW. Many have deemed the title the ‘work rate title’ already.
While speaking on Mark Andrews’ My Love Letter To Wrestling podcast, Seth Rollins stated that he believes calling the WWE World Heavyweight Championship the ‘work rate title’ is underselling. Rollins also revealed his intentions for the title.
”I think just kind of calling it the work rate title is a little bit underselling it. At the end of the day, the title exists because our roster is so chock full of talent. There’s just too much to have one champion that’s not around very much.
I think the fact that we had so many worthy contenders, people that could hold this championship, I think that is the reason the title exists. If we had a weak roster and things weren’t good and stuff wasn’t hot, it might be a different story, it might be fine just to have one champion who wasn’t around, didn’t want to make live events, but that’s just not the case.
We’re selling out left and right, we’re hot, from here to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Paris, France, Mexico City, it doesn’t matter. We’re just selling out left and right. We need to have a World Heavyweight Champion on the men’s side to represent that level of competition.
I think we’re going to put in the work to build this title to be as big as any championship in wrestling. And we’re not naive and think that we don’t need to put in that work. We know that it needs to happen, but we’ve got the roster, and the guys and the crew who are willing to put in the time to make it feel as big as it is.”
Seth Rollins also named WWE talents that he wants to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against. We’ll have to see who Seth Rollins will face next at the WWE Money In The Bank Premium Live Event in July.
