As a cornerstone of professional wrestling, WWE WrestleMania is viewed by many athletes as the zenith of their careers. Seth Rollins, one of WWE's most recognized stars and the reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion, has experienced this climax due to his timely Money in the Bank cash-in at WrestleMania 31.
Nonetheless, Rollins desires a more formally recognized prominent event appearance. In a recent "Out of Character" podcast interaction, Rollins responded to questions about his potential envy of Cody Rhodes' main event slot at WrestleMania 2023.
Contrary to expectations, the champion disputed the notion of jealousy, demonstrating a pragmatic understanding of the wrestling industry. "Jealousy's not necessarily the right word," Rollins emphasized. "At the end of the day, it's show business, you know? That's how it works sometimes.
... It's not always a meritocracy, as much as we would love it to be. It's just not."
Rollins Exploits Logan Paul Rivalry
Rollins elaborated on how he channeled his energies into the narrative he was given for WrestleMania 39, a conflict with internet sensation Logan Paul.
"I took the Logan Paul story and ran with it," he shared. "I knew we would have an absolute blast because the characters were so opposed in the audience's eyes. You had one guy, Logan Paul; that the audience detested, and I ...
had just spun into a guy, everyone was pleased to see weekly." The conversation looped back to Rhodes, and Rollins was forthright about his ambition to be in the main event. The champion views this longing not as negativity but as fuel for his continued growth and success.
"Any time you put in the amount of work that I put in last year while somebody else gets the top spot if you are competitive and want to be the best, ... you're just going to have resentment," Rollins asserted. "It's just going to be there.
And it's healthy, I think." His words serve as a compelling insight into the professional wrestling industry, proving that behind the theatrics lies a passion for success and the desire to occupy the most sought-after spots in the business.
Seth Rollins, one of the industry's top performers, reflects this sentiment, revealing his ambition and drive as a competitor.
