Seth Rollins has named a current female WWE Superstar as the best of all-time.
One man who is determined to prove that you don’t need to look like a Greek God carved from stone to be successful in WWE is Seth Rollins. While stars such as John Cena and Hulk Hogan have enjoyed tremendous success, it was often said that the likes of Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart had to work even harder to climb to the top.
During a recent interview with Sport1, Rollins discussed how hard he has had to work to earn the opportunities he has, while taking time to tip his hat to his wife Becky Lynch. The Visionary explained that Lynch has climbed to the top of the industry through sheer force of personality.
“Becky has developed into one of the biggest stars in the history of our industry with her personality, she is now the greatest wrestler of all time for me,” Rollins said. “And you can see that there is more than one way to be ‘larger than life.’ If you’re already physically fit, it’s definitely easier, but there’s another way. You don’t have to look like Hulk Hogan or John Cena, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are also ‘larger than life,’ although they feel physically 1.50. In the end, it’s not about the physical conditions, it’s about what you make of your conditions.”
Rollins explained that while he admired the likes of John Cena and Roman Reigns, he gets overlooked as he doesn’t share the same physical gifts.
“I don’t look like John, Roman or Hogan, never have and never will,” Rollins said. “I have therefore never been given what they were given. Don’t get me wrong: all of the above have had to work extremely hard and I really admire what John Cena and Hulk Hogan have achieved. And I admire what Roman is doing now.
But the truth is, someone like me doesn’t get passed the ball as naturally as they got it. People like me who aren’t a certain size have to work to the limit all the time. Shawn Michaels had to, Randy Savage had to, Eddie Guerrero and even Bret Hart. We have to wrestle our way up, fight our way up in every sense of the word, that’s the package we carry.”
Seth Rollins had been slated to face Riddle at SummerSlam but the match has now been postponed. However, new Head of Creative Triple H has hinted that the former World Champion is very much still in his plans.
Meanwhile, at the summer spectacular Becky Lynch will take on Bianca Belair in an effort to regain her Raw Women’s Championship.
