Seth Rollins is the Visionary of WWE and has done a lot for the business since his debut in the company more than a decade ago. He has been consistently booked as a strong champion and continues to gain fanfare due to his hard work and dedication. That said, it appears he really didn’t like taking Kevin Owens’ finisher for a good reason.

The WWE World Heavyweight Champion is more than used to taking a lot of punishment throughout his career, but that does not mean he necessarily likes all the pain associated with taking finishers.

The former Architect has squared off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer. This includes Kevin Owens, with whom he had a solid feud over the years in a big way.

While speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Rollins spoke about the most brutal finisher that he has ever taken. He made special note of Kevin Owens’ pop-up powerbomb, which Rollins hated as it hurt his neck.


“I’m trying to think of anyone that’s just brutal. One of the worst ones, and I’m really happy that he adopted a new finishing move, is Kevin Owens’ Pop-up Powerbomb. There is nothing you can do. There’s too much velocity, you’re up too high, you come down too fast. I don’t care if you’ve got a neck of steel, even if you’re Otis and you don’t have a neck. You are gonna bunk your head on that sucker. There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. Just you’re gone. Your neck can’t handle it. That one’s not very fun.”

WWE also has major plans for Seth Rollins as far as his SummerSlam opponent is concerned. Regardless, we will have to wait and see how WWE will continue to book Rollins and Finn Balor’s feud in the coming weeks.
