Seth Rollins is set to be the major guest appearing on WWE Backstage Tonight. It has been advertised as an opportunity for Rollins to further explain his actions on the last two weeks of Raw.
However, Rollins didn’t take to kindly to the expectation of him explaining himself. His new character is one that believes what he is doing is the right thing.
So, Rollins took to Twitter to respond:
If you idiots keep saying I want to explain myself then you’re gonna have to find another guest to pop your ratings. If anything, the panel has some explaining to do to me. https://t.co/ouUrtZAArg

Seth mentioned ratings. He expects himself to be a ratings pop. It will be interesting to see how Rollins’ appearance compares to CM Punk ratings.
Of course, Punk had the appeal of returning to a show about a company he vowed to never come back to and hadn’t really been seen on a “wrestling” show in years.
Rollins hasn’t been one to graciously accept when someone is considered better at him than something. He, of course, popped off on social media about Will Ospreay and called AEW the minor leagues.
Some might call him overly sensitive. Paige certainly seems to think so:

CM Punk will not be on Backstage. Rollins has been keen on calling him out but did not mention him this week on Raw after being in the dog house for ad-libbing his Punk line in Chicago.
Will Rollins really move the needle on WWE Backstage? Most likely not. Raw hasn’t been exactly popping ratings lately either.
Of course, if WWE wanted to pop ratings, they could pull a WrestleTalk and put Andy Datson on the show. Andy will be appearing on the Smackdown WrestleTalk Live this Saturday.
