Seth Rollins told Time Out Shanghai how that nickname came about.
“My proclivity for posting CrossFit videos on social media along with my striking resemblance to the English action version of Jesus Christ combined to somehow create this hilarious ‘CrossFit Jesus’ nickname. I have some T-shirts with ‘CrossFit Jesus’ on them. It’s a good time.”

“The Kingslayer” also revealed to Time Out Shanghai what his most memorable match has been in the WWE thus far. Rollins said that he has had many awesome matches with great opponents in the WWE, but for him, it always comes back to WrestleMania 31. Seth explained to Time Out why WrestleMania 31 is so special to him.
“I was able to cash in a Money in the Bank contract in the middle of the main event and walk out of one of our biggest events as the World Heavyweight Champion. From a kid who had a dream to leave WrestleMania as a world champion, to actually do that with the fireworks going off. For me that’s a moment that always stands out.”
