It is always an interesting experience when a WWE superstar is interviewed and the right questions are asked. For example, if a journalist is interviewing Paul Heyman, talking about the Diva’s division is not the intelligent thing to do. He needs to be questioned on CM Punk’s status, how he stayed afloat in ECW, and the whereabouts of Brock Lesnar. Those are the proper topics to bring up around the “One behind 21 and 1.”
Seth Rollins, Money in the Bank holder, recently talked with Digital Spy, and was asked the right questions. He talked about his position with Dean Ambrose at Hell in a Cell, and if he has a problem with not being the main event match.
“Yeah, it is. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say that it was. We won’t know the answer to that question till Sunday comes. Of course it’s important. I want to go on last every single night, regardless of the match, regardless of the show.”
Rollins, being a clever, sadistic, and technical wrestler, clearly cares about not being the main event match. He and Ambrose will tear the house down and provide the WWE Universe endless entertainment, before the less-exciting match begins. Let’s face it — John Cena and Randy Orton utilize boring mechanics in the ring and let the story tell the tale, not the moves.
Whether that is the style you prefer, that is solely up to everyone’s personal opinion. The feud between Ambrose and Rollins is more personal, it will be more exciting and there will be blood. Even in the PG environment, that hasn’t stopped WWE from letting blood spill on PPVs. Two of the best superstars in the business are in their mid-20’s, and are hotter than guys who appeared in dozens of main event matches on pay-per-views in their respective careers.
The WWE will pursue their own avenue of success regardless of what is logical or not. Speaking of choosing his or her own path, the situation with CM Punk will never go away on its own, if at all. Rollins was asked about an eventual Punk return, and his answer is on the intriguing end.
Before WrestleMania 31 highly, highly unlikely. Down the road? Part of me was 100 percent sure he’d be back at some point but the longer he’s away, the more it makes me wonder that maybe he’s gone. He spent a good portion of his life dedicated to this business, it’s good for him to maybe get away,” Rollins said.
“He’s done all there really is to do. So I hope that he’s happy and I hope that he’s doing well for himself and enjoying his life away from wrestling. You know, that’s what we all work for is to be able to retire early and enjoy our lives, so I hope that’s the case for him.”
Rollins brings up a very good point that a few people often miss. Punk completed nearly everything a WWE superstar can strive to achieve in their career. The only thing he didn’t do is main event a WrestleMania and win the Royal Rumble. Then again, how many people can say they held the WWE championship for over 400 days? There are two sides to every argument.
After the Ambrose program, it is unknown as to where Rollins will end up. A shocking situation came from an NXT taping, as Rollins returned as a babyface. He’s supposed to be a top heel in the WWE, but the NXT fans cheered him endlessly. If the WWE is smart, which they can be, he cannot be shown as a face. That will derail his ultimate momentum as a top bad guy. The WWE needs bad guys.
