Seth Rollins on TODAY recap: winning WWE title, WrestleMania, being "former" Mr. MITB, more
Thanks to Drew Koscelek of Ring Rap for sending us this recap of Seth Rollins' appearance on NBC's Today Show earlier today:
This took place during the "In the Ring with Al, Willie, and Tamron" segment. Rollins mostly stayed in character, saying the belt is "the real deal" and he is "the real WWE Champion." He talked about being Mr. Money in the Bank for 9 months, and cashed in at the most opportune time while on "the grandest stage of them all."
He touted the attendance figures for the show and plugged it being the home of the San Francisco 49ers.
When asked if he's supposed to cash it in fairly, Seth heeled it up and asked if Willie was challenging him. He said he cashed in fair and square, inserted himself into the main event, and beat Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
Willie talked about being in attendance at Hulk Hogan night and how he learned a few moves.
Seth plugged WWE Raw tonight on the West Coast.
They discussed entrances being a big part of the show. Seth said he brought something special for them. He cued up a clip of Willie's head on Hulk Hogan's body, Al Roker's head on The Rock's body, and Tamron's head on Naomi's body.
Rollins corrected them and said he was "former" Mr. Money in the Bank and the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Al Roker then tripped trying to get out of the ring through the ropes as he headed to the weather board.
All in all, a very short segment, but Rollins carried himself quite well. He promoted the brand and touted the corporate numbers while hyping his win and Wrestlemania. A small taste of things to come, but I think Rollins can be an excellent public face for WWE if they choose to stick with him.
