Maybe the best part of this Seth Rollins smack talk is that he called WWE professional wrestling rather than sports entertainment.
While appearing at the Fandemic Tour in Houston, alongside Becky Lynch, Rollins was asked a fantasy booking style question from a fan. Where would be the best location for Rollins and Kenny Omega to wrestle at, with the winner being dubbed the best pro wrestler on the planet?
After laying back from his role as WWE’s company spokesperson for a few weeks, Rollins laid into All Elite Wrestling and Omega with his response.
This man is just a natural born heel at heart.“When Kenny’s done playing in the minor leagues over there, Kenny can come work at the absolute top professional wrestling company in the world, in front of the most people, and make the most money, and have the biggest matches, which is with me at WrestleMania.”
Prior to SummerSlam, Rollins said his piece about the WWE versus AEW debate with some bizarre comments regarding Jon Moxley jumping promotions. Rollins’ Twitter beef with NJPW’s Will Ospreay was just the start of a strange few months for The Beast Slayer both in interviews and on social media.
It was only one month ago when Omega pretty much buried the entire NXT roster under his boot. The Cleaner would later trot out an apology on an episode of Being The Elite that only added more fuel to the fire.
What do you think about Seth Rollins’ comments about AEW being a minor league? How will Kenny Omega and AEW respond?
