Seth Rollins made an appearance on yesterday’s episode of the “Maggie & Perloff” show, where he discussed a wide range of topics.

The WWE World Heavyweight Champion discussed the fans turning on The Rock following last week’s episode of SmackDown where he replaced Cody Rhodes in facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. Rollins said,

“Welllll, maybe not ‘no one saw coming,’ I think some of us with a right mind might have seen this coming.”

Rollins was then asked how he thought it would play out. He said,

“I don’t know. I was in the ring for the ‘Rocky Sucks’ chants. You saw my reaction, that was as legitimate as it comes. I was not prepared. I was prepared maybe for a little ‘We Want Cody,’ didn’t know if they were going to boo The Rock. The ‘Rocky Sucks’ ones, woah. That hit me. I was like, ‘I don’t know what to do with this.’ He’s a brand expert, Dwayne Johnson. He knows what he’s doing. He’ll figure it out, one way or another. I don’t know how this is going to sit with him. I don’t know if he’s on a level where it doesn’t matter to him, he’s going to do what he does, or is he going to take this to heart? He’s a passionate guy. Whatever he gets involved in, it’s because he has passion for it. I assume him getting back involved with WWE has a lot to do with his passion for this. That negative reaction, it might fester. Years ago when they did this to him and chanted ‘Rocky Sucks,’ they went a little further and there were some ‘Die Rocky Die’ chants. It was crazy back in the day. He took it and ran with it and it’s part of what made him who he is today. Who knows. I’m excited. WrestleMania season is upon us. So many possibilities. The Rock is back and it’s all good.”

In a recent interview on the “Maggie & Perloff” show, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins discussed the surprising fan reaction to The Rock’s appearance on SmackDown last week. Rollins shared his thoughts on the fans turning on The Rock and speculated on how it might affect him.

During the interview, Rollins acknowledged that while some fans may have been caught off guard by the negative reaction towards The Rock, he believed that there were those who anticipated it. He stated, “Welllll, maybe not ‘no one saw coming,’ I think some of us with a right mind might have seen this coming.”

When asked about his own reaction to the chants of “Rocky Sucks” during the segment, Rollins admitted that he was taken aback and unprepared for it. He expressed his surprise, saying, “I was in the ring for the ‘Rocky Sucks’ chants. You saw my reaction, that was as legitimate as it comes. I was not prepared. I was prepared maybe for a little ‘We Want Cody,’ didn’t know if they were going to boo The Rock. The ‘Rocky Sucks’ ones, woah. That hit me. I was like, ‘I don’t know what to do with this.'”

Rollins also shared his thoughts on how The Rock might handle the negative reaction from fans. He acknowledged that The Rock is a brand expert and knows what he’s doing, but questioned whether the negative response would affect him personally. Rollins said, “I don’t know how this is going to sit with him. I don’t know if he’s on a level where it doesn’t matter to him, he’s going to do what he does, or is he going to take this to heart? He’s a passionate guy.”

Rollins went on to discuss The Rock’s passion for WWE and speculated on how the negative reaction might impact him. He mentioned that in the past, when fans chanted “Rocky Sucks” and even “Die Rocky Die,” The Rock embraced it and turned it into a defining part of his character. Rollins expressed excitement for WrestleMania season and the possibilities it brings, stating, “I’m excited. WrestleMania season is upon us. So many possibilities. The Rock is back and it’s all good.”
