Seth Rollins spoke to WWE interviewer Sarah Schreiber after his win over Erick Rowan on last night’s Raw, and revealed that he doesn’t feel he has bee given the respect he deserves.
He said he understands why fans are cheering the fiend as he is the new cool thing in the company, but that is no excuse for disrespecting him.
“There’s been a lot of disrespect I feel like. The Fiend, I get it, he’s cool man and he’s fresh and he’s new and he’s got this cult following and that just puts a chip on my shoulder. I just feel like I’m out here every single week busting my back, breaking my back, putting this whole company on my back sometimes and I don’t get the respect that I deserve cause there’s this new flavor of ice cream and the dude’s scary, I get that too.”
Over the past few weeks, Seth has been facing the Fiend in dark matches after Raw goes off air, and winning every single time by escaping a steel cage and then getting mandible clawed at ringside.
He also spoke about his chances at Crown Jewel later this week, and whether he feels he can win.
“I don’t know what it’s gonna take at Crown Jewel to put him away, but I’m going to do whatever it takes to survive and prevail cause it’s kind of what I do. Tonight was a test, I got through it and I feel fully prepared going into Crown Jewel.”
