Seth Rollins chats about a number of topics to promote WWE's upcoming European tour.
The WWE calendar resets every year after WrestleMania and following the company's biggest show of the year is their European tour. Both RAW and SmackDown Live roster members will be on separate tours and will be joined by some of the talent from either NXT and/or NXT U.K. who are from overseas. The current WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins is gearing up for the tour and to promote an upcoming live event on May 8th in Belfast, Rollins spoke with the 'Irish Mirror'.
Rollins was asked for his thoughts about returning to Ireland as it was four years ago that he tore multiple ligaments in his knee during a house show match. Rollins also discussed his Universal Title match against Finn Balor from the 2016 SummerSlam pay-per-view during which Finn was injured after taking a powerbomb onto the barricade and ultimately Finn had to relinquish the Universal Title after holding it for one day. Seth says he hopes the Ireland faithful does not hold that against him as he thinks Finn is doing awesome as Intercontinental Champion.
"I've never had any ill-will with the Irish fans, I don't think, and I hope they've never had any ill-will towards me. I've always loved the country and when I got hurt they were very respectful and understanding and appreciative. The times I've come back to Dublin since then, they've been very receptive to me. I hope they don't hold it against me that I hurt Finn," Rollins said of the incident. "I didn't mean to, I promise. He's back and healthy and doing awesome as the Intercontinental Champion so I think me and the Irish fans are on good terms. I know they're a stubborn bunch but I think we're alright."
Pictures have made the rounds on social media of Seth Rollins and the current RAW and SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch joined in-hand out in a public setting. The interviewer asked Rollins about the rumors of he and Becky's relationship and Rollins responded with the following:
"I'll leave that one up to you," he joked.
Both Seth and Becky will be defending their respective titles at Money In The Bank on May 19th as Seth is defending the Universal Title against AJ Styles, and Becky Lynch is set to pull double-duty as she'll put the RAW Title on the line against Lacey Evans and the SmackDown Title up for grabs against Charlotte Flair.
