WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins recently spoke with the folks from NOLA.com to promote this coming Monday night’s episode of WWE RAW in New Orleans, Louisiana. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On his WWE ‘rebirth’ in 2018: “I’d say this year has been the most fulfilling of my career. I feel like I’ve overcome a lot. And I feel a lot of freedom, I feel a lot of excitement, something that I hadn’t had in a couple of years.”
On wanting to uphold the legacy of the WWE Intercontinental Championship: “Go all the way back to Pat Patterson, the first IC champion. It’s always been known as the workhorse title; the grittier guys carry that thing. Look at guys like Edge and Chris Jericho and Mr. Perfect, Macho Man Randy Savage. These guys were quintessential IC champions. To be a part of that is cool. And not only to be a part of it, but when it’s all said and done, people (might) remember my IC championship reign fondly. And hopefully, I’ll be in the company of those gentlemen when the next guy comes along and is asked the same question.”
On what The Shield may have planned for RAW and their feud with Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler: “I can’t tell you that. The Shield always has something up its sleeve, though we’ve been caught off guard a little bit lately. The team of Dolph, Drew and Braun is quite formidable. Braun is no joke, and neither is Drew. Dolph is a little bit of one, but he’s clever and wily and a veteran. In my opinion, The Shield is the greatest faction of all-time, one of them, and I can’t think of a better place to throw a party than New Orleans. It should be a very eventful Monday.”
