Seth Rollins still wants to properly headline WrestleMania.
While Seth Rollins has had many great WrestleMania moments including defeating Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship in 2019 and ending the show by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase in 2015, Seth Rollins has never officially been booked for the headlining Match of WrestleMania in his career and that is something that he says still bothers him.
Speaking with Yahoo! Sports, Rollins opens up about that being one of the few goals he still has to check off of his list and WWE and notes that his former Tag Team Championship partner and current WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns is typically always the guy slated for the main event spot and that is why he has been slighted through the years.
“I would be lying to you if I said the WrestleMania main event isn’t the one thing that I have really wanted,” Rollins said. “You look back at my career in WrestleManias, I have had some incredible moments, but I have never been the guy who has been on the marquee, slated to go on last. Roman is going to be the guy, for better or worse, he’s going to be the guy who will go on last at WrestleMania. It certainly provides an intriguing amount of possibilities. That’s where everyone who enters this industry wants to be, but we have a long time to get there.”
Seth will have the opportunity to step into the ring with a genuine WWE Hall of Famer in Edge at SummerSlam when they finally have the culmination of a 7-year long issue. Rollins says he's out to steal the show inside Allegiant Stadium at SummerSlam
“It’s a difficult task, what he’s doing,” Rollins said. “To come back after all of those years off, the game changes. Our industry, our sport, it evolves and I am the peak of that evolution. He’s stepping into the deep end, diving in. When [wrestlers] are in the ring with me, when they’re talking with me, we’re going to work at a five-star level all of the time.”
"Iron sharpens iron," Rollins said. "It’s been exciting just to see where I stand. It’s been a while since I have been challenged at this level when it comes to the mind games and the war of words. It’s nice to have someone who can help me be at my very best in that situation."
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SummerSlam beginning Saturday, August 21, at 7 p.m. eastern time.
