Seth Rollins gives himself some credit for the in-ring work he has put out over the past year.
"The Architect" Seth Rollins is walking into tonight's Monday Night RAW as the new Universal Champion. Seth defeated Brock Lesnar in under three minutes in the opening match of WrestleMania 35 last night. Rollins was able to overcome "The Beast Incarnate" and bring the championship back to the red-brand full-time.
The superstars of WWE were on a press run all last week promoting WrestleMania 35 and Seth Rollins spoke with many outlets including Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. During their conversation, the topic of Seth Rollins consistently putting on great matches came up. The question of does Seth view himself as the best in the world came up as well and he responded by questioning what does it truly mean to be the best in the world and said that he has gone out and had matches on RAW that were great but overlooked because he always puts on good performances when he steps in between the ropes.
"Best in the world?” asked Rollins. “Who knows what that means. But there are only a handful of guys who understand what we do, and doing at my level—as often as often I do—there is probably nobody else. That’s my opinion. I’ve gone out and had great matches the past couple years that people have taken it for granted, to the point where a great match on Monday night doesn’t even get a sneeze because I do it so regularly. I just don’t think there’s anybody else out there that has as many incredible matches, with different opponents and different styles, as I do. I don’t think anybody’s resume' can speak as loud as mine can, so I have no problem calling myself the best performer in the entire world.”
