Seth Rollins has emerged as a central figure, finding himself embroiled in a heated rivalry involving the likes of Cody Rhodes, The Rock, and Roman Reigns.

Following dramatic altercation at the WrestleMania Kickoff event in Las Vegas, The Rock shocked the WWE Universe by aligning himself with Reigns, marking his first heel turn in two decades and joining forces with The Bloodline.

In recent interview with Submission Radio, recorded prior to WWE Elimination Chamber, Rollins didn’t hold back in addressing The Rock’s newfound villainous persona, suggesting that the iconic wrestler-turned-actor seemed rattled and out of practice. Rollins expressed disappointment at The Rock’s continued use of familiar insults, insinuating that it reflected a lack of creativity on his part.

“Yeah, I mean, look, he’s rattled, man. He’s shook. He came in here thinking he’s going to do whatever he wanted to do. so now he’s trying to throw his weight around and he’s got all the same insults that he’s had for the last 20 years. It’s kind of sad in some ways. But he wants to run his mouth, dude. He’s going to get whooped. I mean, he’s a specimen, but the dude’s out of practice. He hasn’t wrestled in 10 years.


“I mean, I’m the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. He couldn’t lace my boots in his best days, let alone now. So he can run his mouth all he wants when he wants to show up. I dare him to put hands on me, because he slapped me the way he slapped Cody. If nobody was there to hold me back, oh, baby. I’d be clawing his eyes out of his head. Rey Mysterio, poof, eat your heart out, you know what I mean?”

Asserting his dominance, Rollins highlighted his status as the reigning World Heavyweight Champion and challenged The Rock to test his mettle in the ring. Despite The Rock’s storied legacy, Rollins exuded confidence in his ability to outshine him, asserting that The Rock couldn’t match up to him, even in his prime.

Rollins also shared his excitement about WWE’s current trajectory, describing it as one of the greatest runs in the industry’s history. Positioned at the forefront of this exhilarating era, Rollins expressed gratitude for his prominent role and eagerly anticipated the challenges that lay ahead, particularly leading into WrestleMania.

As tensions escalate and rivalries intensify, the WWE Universe braces for the showdown of the century, where legends collide and champions rise. In the epic saga unfolding before our eyes, Seth Rollins stands tall, ready to cement his legacy amidst the chaos and glory of professional wrestling’s grandest stage.
