With their Universal Title bout at WWE SummerSlam looming, Seth Rollins continues to push the narrative of Brock Lesnar only being in the business for himself and the money. In an interview with The Hindu, Rollins discussed his upcoming bout.
"I’ve already shown the world I can beat Lesnar when I won the title against him at WrestleMania 35 and I can do it again. After that, at WWE Extreme Rules, Lesnar cashed in his Money in the Bank contract when I’d just emerged from a gruelling battle to take advantage of me and literally stole the belt back. Now you tell me, is such a win befitting of a champion?" asked Rollins. "No kid in the world grows up wanting to be a ‘Brock Lesnar’. He might be a great wrestler/ performer, but he doesn’t inspire anyone, doesn’t do anything for the brand or business, and most of all, he’s a terrible champion."
Rollins has become a target on social media as of late as he's gotten into a war of words for NJPW star Will Ospreay and has been criticized for overly defending the promotion he works for. On the subject of using social media as a tool of engagement, Rollins said, "It is a great tool, but we also need to be careful how we use it. We try to be as real as possible and interact with the fans, apart from a few pointers given to us by WWE. But it’s really frustrating sometimes, I’ll admit, when the negativity and trolling gets to you. I mean, I come from a generation that didn’t have the Internet as a kid and maybe I still don’t get it."
Rollins continued, "But some of the issues that are blown out of proportion online really baffle me: like fans worldwide petitioning for a Game of Thrones reshoot because they didn’t like the finale? That is ridiculous!"
