Seth Rollins recently spoke about his new nickname. He was recently drafted to Smackdown. The WWE draft recently started and it was the first round. However, he can no longer call himself a The Monday Night Messiah as he will no longer be part of Monday Night RAW.
Smackdown airs on Friday nights so he can’t use ‘Monday Night’ in his nickname anymore. Seth Rollins turned heel in December. He was working as a babyface before December. He recently appeared for an interview on the WWE Network.
He revealed that now he would be known as the SmackDown's Savior.
Seth Rollins on His New Nickname
"I'd like to introduce myself as Seth Rollins, former Monday Night Messiah, and now, SmackDown's Savior," said Rollins.
He then spoke about the WWE Draft. He was the fourth pick overall this time around. He was at one time the first pick during the Drafts. "The numbers don't matter to me. It's very natural for the champions [Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns] to go off the board first.
"But who is the first behind them? And who is the first to change brands? Who is going to be the most talked about pick of this draft? I think I've answered all those questions," added Rollins. Rollins stated that he will do “more of the same” in Smackdown.
He also will keep working for the greater good and continue spreading his message. Rollins spoke to Kayla Braxton about being part of the Smackdown roster. Rollins started his WWE main roster career at RAW as part of the legendary group called The Shield.
He indicated that he is glad to be put on Smackdown as he has never been part of the brand before. "I've got a new path to carve and many trails to blaze. It's exciting," he said. Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio are currently in a feud with Seth Rollins.
It was noted that Rey and Dominik were also drafted to Smackdown. We believe that WWE wishes to continue the feud for the foreseeable future. Murphy is currently a free agent as he was not drafted to any brand. Seth Rollins was one of the most well-known main roster superstars about a year ago.
Ever since turning heel, he has not been part of any big main event storyline. He was the person that managed to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title a while ago. At the moment, he holds not titles.
