Seth Rollins as WWE’s locker room leader:
"We've all had it and I'm pretty sure they still do it when you are hired to NXT. We all go through a class with social media and media training and all of that. At the end of the day from Seth Rollins to everybody on the roster and myself included, producers we are all human beings at the end of the day. So when you get done with a show and you feel good about something you did and you log onto your Twitter to read if people liked this thing and it is just hours and hours of "this sucks", "the company sucks", "you should all be fired", you are a human being at the end of the day. As much as we probably have a thicker skin than a lot of everyday human beings and if you work in a bank and every day you get hundreds of awful tweets of people saying you screwed up their transactions and they want you to be fired it will probably rock you a little bit more than we do."
"But Seth doing it, it was morale. He is a locker room leader. The same as in generations past, somebody always wants to wave the flag of the boys and the talent. It is even bigger than that and you don't realize it because they are not on TV the incredible crew that we have that travels just as much as we do and just as frequently as we do. They are at the building before the talent arrives and they are their breaking it down afterwards. They care as much as we do they just happen to not be on screen and that was simply in my opinion Seth's way of going, Hey! Screw you. I get you guys are upset. He was just standing up for everyone and I respect the sh*t out of Seth for that and I think everyone does. I think we need more people like that."
