"This is the biggest moment of my life."
Seth Rollins is aware of the magnitude of his current situation. In the past month and a half, he has defeated Brock Lesnar to become the new WWE Universal Champion, at WrestleMania no less, and then successfully defended said title against A.J. Styles at Money in the Bank. Monday Night RAW was without its top prize for much of Lesnar's reign (November 2, 2018 - April 7, 2019), but with the title now in "The Beast Slayer's" hands, and back on television every week, Rollins admits that this is one of the most incredible moments in his career.
Speaking with Justin Barrasso of SI, the former Shield member recounted some touchstone events during his time in WWE, saying, “I’ve been really fortunate to have some incredible moments here in WWE, and I’ve been able to accomplish a lot, but this means even more. I’ve come back from my knee injury. I was almost fired in developmental because of my attitude. This is the biggest moment of my life.”
Considered to be one of the premier performers in the field, the subject of Rollins' place among his peers was brought up. Asked point blank if he is the top talent in wrestling, the Universal Champion opted for the political response, aptly pointing out that “Our industry is an art form, so it’s subjective to whomever is watching it.” He would add that “I have the confidence that I can hang with anybody in the world.”
Rollins is currently without an opponent for WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.
