On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, former AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa reacted to how WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was treated at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff event last week.
At last week’s press conference, Cody Rhodes turned down the chance to wrestle Rollins in favor of Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XL.
Rosa said, “They’ve been insulting him this whole entire time. I just hope, I really do hope, that there’s a good payoff for both of them. As a performer, when you have to do certain things to make other people look good that will make your character diminish, it’s rough because you’re going to suffer a lot of criticism from the fans.”
Mickie James lavished praise on Rollins, calling him a workhorse champion. She said,
“I think people forget how damn good Seth is. When he says something like he’s been here the whole time and he’s a workhorse and he’s always defending his championship and he’s always in these marquee matches he’s always going to have a killer match at every PPV he’s at including WrestleMania, obviously, and it felt a little minimized. I hope at the backend that he steps into that; that’s a real thing of going, ‘Hold on, I’m Seth freaking Rollins.’”
At WrestleMania 40, Rollins will defend the World Heavyweight Title against the winner of the 2024 Men’s Elimination Chamber match.
In the world of professional wrestling, the name Seth Rollins is synonymous with excellence and hard work. As the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Rollins has proven time and time again that he is a force to be reckoned with in the squared circle. However, recent events have raised questions about how he is being treated by the company.
During a press conference for WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes, a prominent figure in the wrestling industry, turned down the opportunity to face Rollins at the event. Instead, Rhodes chose to challenge Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. This decision left many fans and fellow wrestlers questioning the treatment of Rollins.
Former AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa expressed her concern for Rollins, stating that he has been insulted throughout this entire ordeal. She hopes that there will be a satisfying payoff for both Rollins and Rhodes. Rosa understands the challenges of having to make others look good at the expense of one’s own character and reputation.
Mickie James, another highly respected wrestler, came to Rollins’ defense, praising him as a workhorse champion. She reminded everyone of Rollins’ incredible talent and his consistent ability to deliver outstanding matches. James believes that Rollins deserves more recognition and respect for his contributions to the wrestling industry.
Despite the doubts and criticisms surrounding Rollins’ treatment, he remains focused on his upcoming title defense at WrestleMania 40. Rollins will face the winner of the 2024 Men’s Elimination Chamber match, a high-stakes battle where multiple wrestlers compete for a chance to challenge for the World Heavyweight Title.
Rollins’ dedication and determination have been evident throughout his career. He has consistently put on stellar performances and has proven himself as one of the top wrestlers in the world. While there may be concerns about how he is being portrayed in recent events, Rollins has the opportunity to showcase his skills and remind everyone why he is known as “Seth freaking Rollins.”
As the wrestling world eagerly awaits WrestleMania 40, fans and fellow wrestlers alike hope that Rollins will receive the recognition and respect he deserves. Regardless of the outcome, there is no denying that Seth Rollins is a true champion and a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional wrestling.
