Seth Rollins Details Trying To Prove People Wrong About The World Heavyweight Title Being A Secondary Championship
Seth Rollins talks about the challenge of establishing a new world title in WWE.
In an interview with SHAK Wrestling, inaugural World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins spoke about trying to establish a new title in WWE, and proving to people that it isn't secondary to Roman Reigns' Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Rollins explained:
“There’s always a chip on my shoulder. It never goes away. I’m never just coasting. I’m never just being okay with being okay. [...] Now I’ve got people calling my world championship a secondary world championship. So now I’m out here trying to prove everybody wrong on that end. I’m not gonna be naïve and think that we ain’t got a lot of work to do. Establishing a new title is difficult work. It's a hard job, and somebody’s gotta do it. I am very honoured to have the responsibility to be the guy to do that. So there’s always a chip on my shoulder.
“Any time we go to any arena in the country and anybody else gets credit for filling a house or being on top or popping a rating or anything like that, I’m always gonna feel slighted by it. Not in a way that I’m jealous, I’m thrilled. Business is huge. We are the hottest ticket in town. Anywhere we go, we’re sold-out left and right. Houses are up, ratings are up. It’s crazy to be a part of WWE right now."
Rollins defeated AJ Styles in a tournament final at Night of Champions 2023 to become the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion. His next title defence is set to be against Finn Balor at SummerSlam this coming weekend.
