Here's your post-Raw fight-size update for May 18, 2020:
- Seth Rollins had a revelation tonight on Raw and below was Rollins' revelation, transcription courtesy of Robert DeFelice:
“Now what happened to Rey Mysterio has been described by some as heinous, disgusting and unforgivable. It has been described by others as an act of penance paid to me for Rey Mysterio's disbelief in the Monday Night Messiah, but I don't see it that way at all. The way I see it, what happened to Rey Mysterio was unfortunate but necessary. sacrifice for the greater good. It was the cathartic moment that I needed to become the great leader I was meant to be. Now, I’d like to take this moment to speak to Rey Mysterio directly. Rey, I know you're at home which is family right now and you're healing and I know you can't see it right now, but you will come to understand what happened to you was a blessing in disguise I want to say this to you now from the bottom of my heart so that when we meet face-to-face again it doesn't have to be said Rey Mysterio, you're welcome.”
