Digital Spy interviewed WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

Below are the highlights:

Ring of Honor’s deal with Destination America: "Great for Ring of Honor. It's tremendous any time our wrestling industry continues to grow. That's awesome for them.

"They were a breeding ground for a lot of talent that now exists [in the WWE]: Kevin Owens, myself, Sami Zayn, obviously Daniel Bryan, Cesaro.

"They have proven to be a valuable asset when it comes to cultivating great talent as far as moving guys up to the bigger ranks.

"It's great - I'm super thrilled for them and I hope they can sustain and hopefully we see more talent coming out of there and into NXT and eventually into WWE. It's a good time to be a wrestling fan, that's for sure."

Samoa Joe in WWE NXT: "I was very thrilled for Joe. He's a guy who was an idol of mine growing up, someone I watched when I was in my formative teenage years.

"He's someone whose style I emulated when I first started. There's definitely pieces of Samoa Joe in the Seth Rollins repertoire so it's cool he's part of the company now - something you thought you'd never see

"Like I say, it creates a lot of super-interesting match-ups, so it's a great time to be a professional wrestling fan, a great time to be a WWE fan for sure."

Using the Pedigree as his finisher: "I've used a lot of 'finishers' in my career. There's a few in the tank that are still there, but the Pedigree seemed like it made the most sense moving forward based on my current standing with The Authority and Triple H.

"You look at Triple H's career and where he's at. It's not like he's going to be in the ring forever, at some point he's got a billion dollar company to help run. It's a cool way to let his legacy live on I guess a little bit.

"It's a move that has been effective for years and years and years so it's cool to help bring that to the next generation."
