The "wrestler's court" in the WWE locker room is a thing of the past according to Seth Rollins. The topic came up during a recent appearance by the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion on Bailey and Southside, a morning radio show based out of Atlanta and airing on Rock 100.5 FM.
Describing wrestler's court as "antiquated", Rollins said it had been used as more of a light-hearted system, which was typically used over trivial "offenses" which would be ruled on by a jury of peers in the locker room. Rollins did admit, however, that penalties in wrestler's court "could be a little harsh" before the company began to be publicly traded and social media grew to its current level of prominence.
Rollins made his comments in response to a question about Roman Reigns' apology to the locker room in June following his violation of the WWE wellness policy, which led to Reigns serving a 30-day suspension from the roster, which ended just before the WWE Battleground pay-per-view, which saw Reigns and Rollins challenge WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose in the first matchup involving all three members of The Shield as opponents.
Rollins told the radio hosts Reigns addressed the locker room because of his leadership role on the roster and that he wanted to address the violation. Some reports had been made that WWE management ordered Reigns to address the locker room.
Rollins currently is gearing up to face Finn Balor at Summerslam on August 21 in Brooklyn, to crown the first WWE Universal Champion.
