As part of the shocking turn of events, The Rock turned heel for the first time in two decades, officially aligning with Roman Reigns and joining The Bloodline.

Heel Rock means typical heel Rock insults and Seth Rollins, during a recent interview with Submission Radio recorded prior to WWE Elimination Chamber, says he finds it a little sad that The Rock still has the same insults and says it seems as though he's shaken and out of practice.

"Yeah, I mean, look, he's rattled, man. He's rattled. He's shook. He came in here thinking he's going to do whatever he wanted to do. so now he's trying to throw his weight around and he's got all the same insults that he's had for the last 20 years. It's kind of sad in some ways. But he wants to run his mouth, dude. He's going to get whooped. I mean, he's a specimen, but the dude's out of practice. He hasn't wrestled in 10 years. I mean, I'm the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. He couldn't lace my boots in his best days, let alone now. So he can run his mouth all he wants when he wants to show up. I dare him to put hands on me, because he slapped me the way he slapped Cody. If nobody was there to hold me back, oh, baby. I'd be clawing his eyes out of his head. Rey Mysterio, poof, eat your heart out, you know what I mean?"

Seth Rollins says he believes WWE is currently in one of its greatest runs as a company and he's honored to be involved at the very top of the industry.

"It's a great time. Business is good. We are here in Perth. It's going to be a fantastic Elimination Chamber. I am excited to be right in the middle of all that. I've never taken a world title into WrestleMania, so I'm stoked to be not in the Chamber and just watching six guys tear each other apart to try to get a shot at my title and at me in a marquee match on the biggest show in the history of our industry. So, I mean, I love it. Then you got The Rock back here talking his smack. You got Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes. I mean, we're in the middle of one of the greatest runs in the history of our industry, and I am psyched to be dead smack in the middle of it."
