Seth Rollins Confirms Real-Life “Animosity” Toward Major WWE Star

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins has fired back at Cody Rhodes after the American Nightmare claimed that he “can’t stand him.”

Speaking ahead of his WrestleMania clash with Roman Reigns, Rhodes reflected on his storyline with Rollins. While looking back at their trilogy of matches, Rhodes said that there is genuine bad feeling between the pair, revealing they almost got into a fight backstage.

During an interview with Daniel Cormier for ESPN, Rollins gave his side of the story, confirming there’s a “level of truth” in what Rhodes says. He added that he “isn’t comfortable” with all of the opportunities coming Rhodes’ way.

“I can’t get into so many details on that. There is a level of truth to that. The bottom line is, I feel, based on my body of work and what I’ve contributed to this company over the course of this last decade; I should be in that position. I’m the one who has held it down while he drifted off and went and did his own thing, respect to him, great. He drifted off and did his own thing. I

‘m the one who held it down. Whenever everybody got hurt or did something else or went off or took part-time schedules or wanted to do less and ask for more or wanted to go somewhere else because they weren’t happy — you don’t think there has been plenty of times where I haven’t been happy or plenty of times where I haven’t felt like I’ve been on the short end of the stick? There are a ton of stories I could tell about that, but I don’t, I keep it to myself.

I put my head down, I work hard, I vouch for this company. I feel like, what he’s getting..I’m just not entirely comfortable with it. That just creates some natural friction between the two of us. When tempers flare, tempers flare. There is a little truth to that, but I can’t get into too many details. There is some level of mutual respect, there has to be in this industry, but at the same time, there is animosity as well,”
