Seth Rollins Comments on if WWE Needs The Rock Competing at Next Year’s WrestleMania
Sports Illustrated held a recent interview with Seth Rollins and one of the topics discussed involved his thoughts on if The Rock should compete at next year’s WrestleMania and why WWE does not need him to do so.
“That’s cool, too. Don’t get me wrong. I love Rocky. I think he’s great. Love everything he’s done for this business. But my gut, my first instinct, says we don’t need him. We don’t need him. If we’re not the guys who can main event WrestleMania, then how are we ever gonna be The Rock? How are we gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin? We can’t hold onto these guys forever. We just can’t. To me, let’s do Seth Rollins-Roman Reigns before we do Seth Rollins-The Rock. That’s me.”
Ronda Rousey Comments on Her Current Wrestling Career in WWE
ESPN held a recent interview with Ronda Rousey and one of the topics discussed involved her thoughts on possibly extending her wrestling career in WWE.
“I love this way more than I ever thought I would.
We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much. I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such a joy to be a part of every day.”
