Seth Rollins Calls Raw ‘Obnoxiously Long’ WWE

Seth Rollins was on the SI Media podcast recently and discussed a variety of topics including, that darn extra hour of Raw and the difference it makes for not only the viewer, but the performers as well.

Rollins elaborated on whether he preferred being on Raw or Smackdown, discussing that third hour for Raw saying:

“I think a three hour show is just obnoxiously long every week. Everything gets stretched out, you know, and you’ve got to cram — you got to fill three hours of television, there’s just nothing to be done. You know, that’s just how it is. So I think two hours is a beautiful kind of number for a pro wrestling show. And I think it’s easier to make everything mean a little bit more. You know, on SmackDown when I was there last year, I hardly ever wrestle on television and so it was kind of a big deal. You look at Roman, he hardly ever wrestles on television, I think maybe a handful of times in the last year. So when he has matches at these pay-per-views, they feel like big deals and on Raw I’ve wrestled in like 26 five-star matches in the last two months. It’s just been wild the amount of actual wrestling that I have to do and I’d love to avoid that but it is what it is. I like the fact that I get a lot more screen time on Mondays because you have the extra hour but yeah it’s a apples to oranges type thing. I do think three hours is just a lot to ask every week of a viewer.”

Seth Rollins appeared at WrestleMania 38 against a ‘mystery opponent of Mr. McMahon’s choosing’ which was eventually revealed to be the returning Cody Rhodes.

Rollins continues to appear on the ‘obnoxiously long’ Raw which had recently seen him partnering with Kevin Owens to form an unlikely alliance in their winding roads to WrestleMania.
