Seth Rollins On Adam Pearce 'Firing' Bobby Lashley: Maybe Triple H Will Have To Lay Down The Hammer

Seth Rollins discusses the ongoing situation that involves Bobby Lashley and WWE Official Adam Pearce.

Pearce told Lashley he was "fired" at the end of the December 12 episode of WWE Raw. "The All Mighty" had just lost to Seth Rollins in a WWE United States Championship #1 Contender's Match. After the bell, he attacked the referee and shoved Pearce, who yelled at the powerhouse before he informed him of his termination. The next day, Pearce reversed his decision and announced that he and Lashley will have a meeting later this week.

Speaking on the December 14 episode of WWE's The Bump, Rollins was if he thinks the “right decision” has been made. He responded by noting that he's not in charge, so the decision. Rollins noted that he's curious to see how the two men handle the matter before he pointed out that, as a professional, he would never put himself a situation like this.

“Well, luckily this isn’t my sandbox. I don’t have to make that decision. I will say this — I don’t know who’s got the temper problem. I don’t know whether it’s Pearce or Lashley. Both of them seem to be a bit of a hothead here. Pearce dropping some very unsavory language on Monday night, goodness gracious. But I get it, you know, you get pie-faced by a man, you’re in the heat of the moment, things happen. I feel this is very similar to Bobby. So I’ll be very curious to see, honestly, how they hash these things out and what comes of it. You can’t crack an official in the head, you can’t pie-face Adam Pearce. You can’t do those things. You gotta be a professional. I mean, professional, I am the king of professionalism. I go by the book all the time, so I understand these things. I would never do anything to put myself in a situation like that," Rollins said.

Rollins continued by wondering whether someone else might have to get involved in the situation. He noted that "Papa H" himself, WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H, may have to lay the proverbial sledgehammer down if Pearce and Lashley can't resolve the issue themselves.

"I’m very curious to see how the two of them kind of handle this business, or if maybe somebody else needs to step in. I don’t know, if ‘Papa H’ needs to come down and lay the hammer down, the sledgehammer, so to speak, who knows? We’ll see," he said.

Fightful will continue to monitor the situation and provide information as it becomes available.
