Seth Rollins On Playing Second Fiddle To Roman Reigns In WWE
Seth Rollins speaks about not being 'the guy' in WWE.
In an interview with Ariel Helwani on the BT Sport YouTube channel, WWE Superstar Seth Rollins spoke about playing second fiddle to former Shield stablemate Roman Reigns.
"Even when I had won the title at WrestleMania, cashed in, great moment, I still felt like I was second fiddle to Roman [Reigns]. I still felt like he was the guy. You're the placeholder until he's totally ready and we're totally ready to put the ball in his hands, but for now you're a step ahead so we're going to give you this - and then we'll move on to what we really want to be, but it's just going to take a few months."
Rollins also expressed that this feeling seems to be a theme throughout his career, even going back to his ROH days as Tyler Black.
"I've never been the one on the marquee at WrestleMania. It was John [Cena], it was Roman [Reigns]; in some regards when I was at Ring of Honor it was Nigel [McGuinness] or it was Bryan [Danielson].
"I was always the guy on the come up, or on the underneath. I was kind of the second, or the next big thing type, and that always just eats at me. It eats at me so much. I don't know where that competitive spark comes from but it drives me insane."
