Originally published at Seth Rollins reacts to recent changes in WWE: "Have you ever seen the show Succession?"
The recent changes in WWE is not something Rollins is locking in on.
To start off the new year, Stephanie McMahon resigned from her roles as co-CEO and Chairwoman of WWE in addition to stepping back from the company’s Board of Directors. Vince McMahon returned to the Board as the Executive Chairman.
Talents like Kevin Owens and Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER commented on the changes and the latest to do so is Seth Rollins.
When asked about it by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Rollins compared what’s been going on to the HBO series ‘Succession’.
Well, have you ever seen the show ‘Succession’?… If you need an explanation, there you go. You have three seasons of it I think on HBO so, that’s, again, all above my head. I’m a pro wrestler, I show up, I put in the work in the ring, try to do my best to entertain the people who buy the tickets and watch us on TV and that’s all I can focus on. If I start worrying about the other stuff, I’m gonna lose my cool so, I gotta keep my cool my friend.
The idea of doing a reality series with Becky Lynch was brought up and Rollins said that’s not for him. He feels having a camera following him around all day would drive him insane.
No man, that’s not for me (doing a reality TV series centered around himself & Becky Lynch). That’s not for me. I like to do the scripted stuff or the improvisational stuff. I don’t know about the reality. I feel like having a camera following me around all the time would just drive me insane. I couldn’t handle it.
On February 18th, Rollins is going to be part of the men’s Elimination Chamber match for the United States Championship. The field currently consists of Rollins, Johnny Gargano, Bronson Reed and the champion Austin Theory.
