Seth Rollins felt like he was made a scapegoat by WWE.
Hell in a Cell 2019 was highlighted by a critically-panned main event that saw Seth Rollins battle Bray Wyatt inside of the titular structure. The match ended in a disqualification which prompted heavy criticism from fans and those within the industry.
Following that rivalry, Seth Rollins would turn heel and he is now saying WWE made him the scapegoat for that event and left him in a very unfavorable position following his loss of the WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel 2019.
“At the end of the day, there’s no real nice way to put it, I was dead in the water after Hell in a Cell,” Seth Rollins tells talkSPORT. “A lot of that was nothing that I could control. I was left out there as a bit of a scapegoat in that situation and there was nothing I could do about it, but I was the one that had to face the scrutiny. No one really cared about me at that point in time, or about how I was feeling or about what really went into that moment, that night, and everything that went along with it.”
He continued, “But, that’s what happened and here we are. There’s no point lamenting the past, it’s time to move on, move into the future and figure out what you’re gonna do about it, ya know? What can you control.”
Seth Rollins has since bounced back as the "Monday Night Messiah" and he looks to wrestle away the WWE Championship from Drew McIntyre at WWE Money in the Bank.
Fightful will have live coverage of money in the bank beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, May 10, 2020.
