In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated to hype this Sunday’s Pay-Per-View SummerSlam, Seth Rollins was asked about how he felt about the speculated WrestleMania 35 match between The Rock and Roman Reigns.
This is what he had to say down below:
“I’d like it to be Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins.”
Rollins was then asked about a possible match between himself and The Rock instead. He went into further detail to why he felt like they don’t need him at next year’s WrestleMania:
“That’s cool, too. Don’t get me wrong. I love Rocky. I think he’s great. Love everything he’s done for this business. But my gut, my first instinct, says we don’t need him. We don't need him. If we’re not the guys who can main event WrestleMania, then how are we ever gonna be The Rock? How are we gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin? We can’t hold onto these guys forever. We just can’t. To me, let’s do Seth Rollins-Roman Reigns before we do Seth Rollins-The Rock. That's me.“
Ryan’s Take: Rollins has a very good point. You can’t build megastars if you keep relying on the past ones. While I understand WWE’s business standpoint to draw more viewes and old fans in, the main point is that the current stars need to have the light shined onto them.
