All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is often criticized for too many digs at the WWE both on and off the air, when perhaps some fans present at the arena record a video with their cell phone and publish it on the internet. One of the current top wrestlers on the WWE roster, Seth Rollins, wanted to talk about this, expressing his opinion by criticizing a bit the attitude of his colleagues on the other side.
Speaking with Jimmy Traina of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, The Drip God started with the speech by saying that no one behind the scenes told him anything about him mentioning Jon Moxley. In fact, Rollins mentioned his former Shield mate's name during the latest rivalry against the other former Shield, Roman Reigns.
Seth Rollins slams AEW
RAW star Randy Orton said rumors of him leaving WWE for AEW aren't true, and he has no idea where it started. While speaking to Pat McAfee on The Pat McAfee Show, Orton opened up about past rumors of him leaving WWE to join AEW.
Seth Rollins said, "Not one thing. Not one thing. Nobody told me anything about it. Everyone knows it's part of our story. You can't do Seth and Roman without Dean or Mox, whatever you want to call him. You can't do that.
Ignore that. part of our story and putting it aside and focusing on Roman and Seth, the focus was on Roman and Seth, which was the story, but he's a part of it so ignoring him and pretending he doesn't exist is silly.
to him with the name he prefers to use and that's where we are. I haven't heard anything backstage." Then he went on to talk about the fact of naming the wrestlers of other companies: "For me, it's one of those things where, if it's very useful, it's fine.
The references you mentioned [Rollins quoted Moxley, CM Punk quotes WWE ] are two different kinds of things. I didn't use the reference to Mox to talk to someone. I wasn't trying to belittle anyone's accomplishments.
It wasn't. It's part of our story, Roman wouldn't be the same if it weren't for me and Mox. The other side of that coin is how it can be used by those guys. They can do what they want. Personally, I find it very tacky and low-key.
I think you look desperate and stink of despair. I don't think there's anything on our TV show that makes us go there and talk bad about those kids. They are doing their job, they are doing it very well, we are very happy for them.
I am, at least personally. Am I at our level? No. They have a long way to go to reach us. Okay, and they know it. They do things differently. From my point of view, it's a step down for us to use it as an insult. This is my point of view. People cannot share that opinion."
