Seth Rollins isn’t holding back his feelings about The Rock’s recent comments, labeling them as “dumb s**t.”

Since his WWE comeback, Rollins, a member of the Bloodline, has been actively working to establish himself as a heel, despite his widespread popularity both inside and outside the wrestling world. The Rock recently made headlines by claiming credit for revitalizing wrestling’s cool factor and also made pointed remarks about Michelle, the mother of Rollins’ WWE rival Cody Rhodes.

During a WWE event in Rockford, Rollins and Rhodes teamed up to defeat Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa, gaining momentum for their upcoming WrestleMania tag team match. Following their victory, Rollins grabbed the microphone and addressed The Rock’s recent statements, eliciting boos from the Illinois crowd and chants of “Rocky Sucks.”

Rollins didn’t mince words, referring to The Rock’s claims as “dumb st,” which only intensified the negative reaction from the audience, prompting a chorus of “bullst” chants.


When Rhodes suggested that Byron Saxton was a more fitting candidate for making wrestling cool again, Rollins acknowledged Saxton’s role but passionately argued that it’s the collective effort of everyone who has tirelessly worked in the industry for years that deserves recognition for the wrestling revolution.

Rollins emphasized the vital role of the fans in this revolution, stating that their dedication is just as crucial. He pointed out that the increasing intensity of the crowd’s reaction to Rhodes’ entrance music has nothing to do with The Rock.

The Rock is set to return to the ring at WrestleMania 40 in the main event of Night One, teaming up with Roman Reigns to take on Rhodes and Rollins. The outcome of this match will determine the stipulation for the subsequent Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match between Reigns and Rhodes on Night Two.
