Seth Rollins On Working With Becky Lynch On-Screen: We Don't Need To Touch On It Ever Again

Following WrestleMania 35 and news of their relationship going public, Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were united on-screen.

Rollins was the reigning WWE Universal Champion while Lynch was the Raw Women's Champion. The two became entangled in a feud with Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans, leading to a mixed tag team match at Extreme Rules.

Speaking on the Sports Media with Richard Deitsch, Rollins discussed the lack of chemistry the two had on-screen during that time.

"We tried to make the best at it, but I don't think either of us were terribly comfortable with it," he said. "Even though we have incredible chemistry as people, as performers, our characters never really vibed on-screen. It's one of those things where, if she comes back, we'll stay away from it and won't touch on it. If something calls for it and we're in the same segment or story, you can't pretend like it doesn't exist. It's not possible, we're too high profile for that, but if we're in two separate places, then no one thinks about it now. I've had to think about it because now that crowds are back, I'll get 'We want Becky' chants. I don't know to navigate that. I'm not exactly sure why people think that's an insult to me. 'Yeah, my wife is awesome and great. I get why you want her instead of me. I'm also a bad guy.' I don't know where the insult comes here. If it happens, how am I supposed to react to that and what am I supposed to say? Luckily, I haven't had to address it yet, but it doesn't hurt my feelings."

Lynch has been off television since May 2020 after announcing her pregnancy. Since being off TV, she had delivered her child with Seth and the two have gotten married.

When asked if the two would work together upon Becky's return, Seth replied, "Even pre-trip Drip God, Visionary, Monday Night Messiah; it didn't work. Her character is a loner. She doesn't need anybody. To see that character in a relationship doesn't feel good. It never felt good. Especially now, I don't know what it would look like. Seth Rollins and Bayley characters, their synergy was perfect and it made perfect sense for them to be in the ring together and do a promo together. (Becky's) character is not built for a number two, it's really not. There's no harm in it, but I don't think we need to touch on it ever again."

It is unknown when Lynch will return to television.

As for Rollins, he is scheduled to take on Edge this Saturday at WWE SummerSlam. You can view the current lineup for WWE SummerSlam by clicking here.
