WWE News: Seth Rollins on Sasha Banks-Charlotte Flair match headlining 'Hell in a Cell', shield reunion and more
'The Architect' claims he is up for a Shield reunion whenever it happens.
In a recent Q&A session, which was held to promote WWE’s tour to Europe, Seth Rollins shared his opinion on several things including the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, a possible Shield reunion and the Raw-Smackdown brand split among others.
Speaking on the first ever women’s ‘Hell In A Cell’ match headlining the titular pay-per-view, he claimed that he was proud of Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. However, he also admitted that he wished his WWE Universal Championship match with Kevin Owens would have ended the night. Here’s what he said:
“It was a historic moment for the ladies and I was very proud of them, but I'm a competitor and I want to be in the main event every single night. And Kevin and I went out there. We tore the house down and made it really difficult for those ladies to go in after us and follow. But I know, knowing Sasha and Charlotte, they wouldn't have had it any other way.”
When questioned about the brand split which happened a few months ago, ‘The Architect’ said that it has worked well for him, and he is proud to have been the No.1 pick in the draft.
“The brand split has been fantastic for me. I was very stoked to be the number one draft pick overall, not just for RAW, but for the entire company. That's a huge thing. You look back at past drafts and the history of the company, there haven't been a whole lot of number one picks, so I think we've had what, three for four drafts or something like that? So it's very prestigious for me,” Rollins was quoted as saying.
Continuing on the topic of the brand split, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, established that it was the women’s division which has helped Raw gain a slight upper-hand over SmackDown Live.
“As far as the level of competition, I think that that's awesome. I think with the women really pushing the envelope, bringing their brand of things to the next level, with Charlotte and Sasha [Banks] and Bayley and all the ladies. That's not a knock on SmackDown, but just what we're doing on RAW right now, it's really pushing the envelope, especially the women, so I welcome the competition.”
On the subject of a possible reunion of ‘The Shield’, a stable of which he was a part, alongside Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, Rollins did not rule out the possibility of it taking place. He said that he might consider strapping on a vest again if it is the right time to do so.
“There's always room to mend broken hearts, I suppose. You never know. I suppose with Ambrose over on SmackDown and Roman and me on RAW, obviously, the reunion is not going to happen anytime soon. Ambrose is kind of kicking butt over there, and we're doing our thing on RAW,” said Rollins.
“I'm not opposed to the idea. Down the road, if the time is right and it feels good, maybe I'll strap a vest on again and see what happens," he concluded.
