Seth Rollins on a ‘tense’ conversation with Vince McMahon: Just give me the ball

Seth Rollins was a guest on ‘Broken Skull Sessions’, and talked about an interesting conversation with Vince McMahon when he expressed his desire to become the Intercontinental Champion. “I know what he’s trying to do.

I have all the respect in the world for my boss and for Vince as a person, we have a good relationship, but you’re not going to talk to me like that without me firing back. I fired back at him. We got into a heated discussion, an argument, and I’m like, ‘Look man, just give me the ball and I’ll take it to the house, but you have to give me the opportunity”.

“You put me in a bullsh*t situation where I’m having to fill in these spots and I’m not getting the focus I deserve. Give me the opportunity and you’ll see the guy you want to see. It’s not me.

Trust me. I put forth the effort every night. I make every town, I bust my ass for you, don’t give me that sh*t.’”

Rollins on Vince McMahon

Rollins did his best to convince the boss that he was the one, and Vince McMahon seems to love such fighters.

“He respects that. He respects when you do that and stand up for yourself. I was like, ‘We’re nowhere with this babyface character. Give me a run as the IC Champion, let’s work to get to Finn, Miz, and Seth at WrestleMania, give me the title, and let me run with it as a babyface.

The work rate will get me over, I promise you. It will take the pressure off me, do what you want with the World Title, just let me go out there and have a good time. I promise you, you’re gonna get these people to see who the real guy is.’ That’s what happened”.

Seth Rollins' message would be that a person must fight for himself if he wants to succeed. “You have to pick your time and place. If I had walked in the door on day one and been like, ‘I’m your next World Champ,’ you can’t do that.

You have to build equity over time. It’s like any relationship. He gives you a little bit, you do what you can with it, and if you turn it into something, he’s going to respect you. At this point, I’ve been one of his guys for a decade, we have got to have that relationship. If he doesn’t hear it from me, who is he going to hear it from? Not everyone is going to tell him that”.
