Seth Rollins reflects on his match with Logan Paul.
The bout between Logan Paul and Rollins, which went down at WrestleMania 39, was very well received by many fans of WWE. Some fans would argue that Rollins' big win over Paul is part of his journey that eventually led to his recent World Heavyweight Championship win.
In a new interview with Mark Andrews, Rollins reflected on the Mania bout and how he viewed it as the company trusting him with a big moment.
“It’s different. It’s 100% different. Obviously, there’s a lot more pressure on me to carry the weight of a match, carry the burden of a huge WrestleMania match where you’ve got someone like Logan Paul, who brings so many eyes that normally don’t pay any attention to our industry and put a huge spotlight on our industry at the biggest event of the year. So there’s a lot of pressure on you. The company is basically saying, ‘Here, we trust you to handle this and do this well.’ Then you’re in there with a guy who has very little experience. But I’ll say this about Logan. Say what you will about his personality and how he conducts himself outside of the ring and his different exploits and all that, I don’t pretend to comment or know about all that stuff. But he’s a hard-working cat, he is a hustler, and I don’t think you get to his level of success just kind of phoning it in. He’s a hustler, he did everything that he needed to do to get himself as ready as someone in his position could be for a match like that, and I think you saw the end result. It’s on par with any of the other WrestleMania matches that I’ve ever had. That’s a testament to me and how fantastic I am, but also it’s a testament to him and how much hard work he put in, and got himself in the absolute best possible position to succeed. So it was a great time, and I’d love to do it again."
Paul hasn't competed since the loss to Rollins at WrestleMania 39.
Elsewhere in the interview, Rollins commented on making the World Heavyweight Championship as big as any other title. Fans can learn more here.
