Seth Rollins apologizes but stands firm on his original statement.
"The Architect" Seth Rollins engaged in a back and forth with the current IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay last week that kick-started a debate on social media about what promotion or company has the best professional wrestling to offer. Rollins and Ospreay continued their back and forth beyond that debate and Rollins mentioned the amount of money he makes compared to Will Ospreay. For that comment alone, Rollins took to Twitter and apologized and added that he knew the comment was not a good response from the moment he sent it. The Universal Champion did note that he still stands firm on what he feels about WWE having the best pro wrestling and explained why he stands by that viewpoint:
After a few days to sit on it, I’d like to apologize to @WillOspreay for the tweet I sent his way about comparing bank accounts. It was dumb of me & not in line with my values. The moment I pressed the send button I knew it was trash, but I’m too stubborn for my own good.— Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) July 2, 2019
I stand firm in my sentiments that @WWE is the best pro wrestling on the planet and that I’m the best of the best doing it right now. After a helluva week of travel, our crew didn’t waver for a second. Top level humans busting their asses for the love of the game.— Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) July 2, 2019
I couldn’t be more proud to be a champion with this company and represent @WWE and the entire industry in the way it deserves. No more garbage tweets. I can and will be better.— Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) July 2, 2019
By the end of this week, both Seth Rollins and Will Ospreay will have wrestled in the American Airlines Center as Rollins competed last night in Dallas on WWE RAW and Ospreay will be in action this weekend in Dallas for the opening day of the G1 Climax 29 tournament.
