Seth Rollins Enjoys Being In A Leadership Position On WWE Raw, Discusses Potential Match With Edge

Seth Rollins has taken on a new role and character on WWE Raw, acting as the Monday Night Messiah while leading Austin Theory and Murphy.

Rollins is no stranger to groups, but this is the first time where he's been the top guy and veteran among the group.

"I think there is a lot of room for growth. The thing that I’ve enjoyed the most is being on the other end of the leadership totem pole. In The Authority, I was essentially learning from Triple H, Kane, Randy Orton, and Stephanie, and to an extent, J&J, who both had more experience than I did," Rollins told Sports Illustrated. "Now, in my current role, I’ve got Murphy and Austin Theory under my tutelage. So to be able to take the knowledge I’ve learned over the past eight years and help them move their careers forward, that’s very exciting. It’s a different role than I’ve ever taken on, and I’m really looking forward to seeing them blossom and becoming even bigger superstars."

Rollins is currently feuding with Rey Mysterio and will host Mysterio's retirement ceremony on Monday's Raw.

But he also has his eye on another WWE legend.

"I can only assume that our paths will cross," Rollins said when asked about working with Edge. "I don’t know what Edge’s contract looks like, and I don’t know where his story with Randy Orton is going next, but I enjoyed their match at WrestleMania and I look forward to their match at Backlash. If I were to guess, putting myself in Edge’s shoes, I would think he has some unfinished business with Seth Rollins. I can only assume, at some point in time, he’s going to come calling–and I would be happy to answer that call.

"Edge is someone I’ve admired for a long time, and he’s someone I’ve been compared to a lot of times in my career. It’s something I never thought was possible, but I think it would be a cool callback to the story you mentioned from all those years ago. Now that it’s on the table, I don’t see why we wouldn’t address it."

Along with hosting Mysterio's retirement ceremony, Rollins will be in action against Aleister Black on Monday's Raw.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
