Seth Rollins is one of the biggest names in WWE right now and he truly achieved mainstream status, transcending even professional wrestling. Now it appears Rollins doesn’t know where his future lies after he finished filming the new ‘Captain America’ film.
Seth Rollins has excelled in any role he has been given in WWE, whether it be as a babyface or a heel. That said, many fans simply feel that Seth Rollins’ mannerisms make him far more suitable as a heel
That is exactly why The Visionary will be part of ‘Captain America: Brave New World.’ Rollins will be portraying the role of the character called King Cobra, a figure from Marvel Comics associated with the Serpent Society.
While speaking to Alex McCarthy of the Daily Mail, Seth Rollins talked about filming the new ‘Captain America’ movie. The Visionary admitted that he doesn’t know where his future lies after the film.
I am sworn to a certain level of secrecy, so I can’t divulge too much information on that. What I will say in response to your question is that it is cool, it’s cool to get opportunities to do something outside of your comfort zone. This is what I love, WWE, professional wrestling, it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do and all I ever intend to do as a career for as long as I can, but anytime you get to a certain level in this industry there’s going to be opportunities that come your way and I love taking chances at this point in my career.
I mean, you can tell with the fashion sensibility I have become known for over the last few years, that I love taking chances! So if you get the chance to do something incredible outside of WWE, you’ve got to take a look at it, try and make it work the best you can because you only get one life and one chance and you never know when you might get an opportunity like that – so you got to make it happen.
As I sit here right now in my wrestling school seeing people fall down behind me, I feel like I’m always going to be part of the industry in some shape of form. You look at The Rock as the example here, and he’s a different beast, right? What you were seeing from John at the time, he was at the peak of his popularity in WWE at the time and it was seeing The Rock come back every year. So, The Rock wasn’t just gone for a hiccup, he was gone for a year and then coming back and taking away an opportunity from someone else who had been there and grinding and all that.
What John didn’t see was the bigger picture and how many more eyes The Rock was going to bring to WWE, to WrestleMania and to the talent as a whole. John missed that part, and he will tell you now that he was a little nearsighted in that regard. And you saw when John Cena came back to WrestleMania this year, it wasn’t to be on the marquee, it wasn’t to be anything other than to be part of the show and contribute in any way that he could.
As for me, I don’t know where my future lies. I feel, like I said, at this moment wrestling is my future for as long as I can do it at a high level. But there’s going to come a day when falling down is going to turn my bones to dust and I will have to start looking elsewhere and seeing what other options there are. I don’t think that’s coming any time soon and I’m just in the prime of my career right now and there’s a lot of years ahead of me.”
