Current WWE Intercontinental Championship Seth Rollins has a lot of respect for the current US Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
Rollins was a guest at the Greg Atoms Show on 1130-KWKH just after Survivor Series, where he faced Shinsuke Nakamura in a Champion vs. Champion match and won. This was the first time the two men had been in a singles match together.
“He’s someone I’ve admired from afar. To be able to get into the ring with him, test myself against him, really get to find out how good I am. It’s a treat, he was an excellent opponent and I was glad that we got that first out of the way successfully,” said Rollins.
Rollins was also asked about his first reaction to a few WWE superstars:
- Braun Strowman , “Monster.”
- Ronda Rousey, “She’s an aberration.”
- Drew McIntyre, “Freak, and I applaud his work ethic.”
- Alexa Bliss, “Sour Patch kid. She’s sweet and sour.”
He also spoke about his plans for when he is done with wrestling. According to Rollins, even if he’s not going to be in the ring anymore, he’s not totally going to be through with the business.
“I’ve already kind of got something going with my wrestling school back home in Iowa. I think once I get off the road and my in-ring career is done take probably at least take a few years off and relax a little bit. You know, but who knows I always like giving back to the business. It’s been my passion, like you said, my entire life,” he said.
