Seth Rollins Fires Back At Booker T's Claims He Had An Easier Path To The Top

Seth Rollins wasn't amused by Booker T's comments

Seth Rollins has fired back at Booker T's claims that he had an 'easier' path to the top. 

The WWE Hall Of Famer was a guest on Monday's episode of Raw Talk and while discussing Rollins vs. Rhodes III at Hell In A Cell, Booker said: "Seth Rollins needs this win more. I mean, Cody Rhodes right now is 2-0 heading into the rubber match. And I must say, Cody isn't one of those guys that had that easier route. He had to work for everything. Seth Rollins is a guy who made it to the top relatively easy, but I must say he had a lot of help."

Rollins quickly took exception to Booker's comments, though, noting the narrative was false.

"This narrative is false. I started wrestling at 18 years old in back rooms of bars, in pole barns, at UAW Halls, the occasional parking lot. Lost money. Broke bones. Drove countless hours alone just to build a name that got erased the second I walked in the WWE door," Rollins tweeted.

Prior to signing with WWE, Rollins had an extensive career on the independent wrestling scene as Tyler Black, especially in Ring Of Honor where he is a former ROH World Champion. He signed with WWE in August 2010.
