Seth Rollins Looks Back At “Surreal” Experience He Had At Past WWE SummerSlam Event

Moments in WWE can be surreal sometimes, even for the most decorated of performers.

This was the case for Seth Rollins when he stood across the ring from John Cena in a match that also involved Jon Stewart back at WWE SummerSlam 2015.

During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes to promote the SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view scheduled to take place this evening, the longtime WWE Superstar reflected on the surreal experience.

Featured below is an excerpt from the discussion where he tells the story.

“That SummerSlam was really surreal for me. I don’t know that I thought the crowd was going to be as invested in me at that point as they were. I think the gear obviously was very striking and added to kind of the excitement level of when I walked out that way, no-one had really seen me in anything but black up until that point. And so it really kind of popped pretty well.

“The match itself, you know, the athleticism and the physicality sort of speaks for itself. And then at the added element of Jon Stewart at all, it all felt very surreal and as if it happened in a dream or as if I was watching it happen to somebody else. Even the idea of being a double champion I almost didn’t think was possible. It wasn’t anything that I even considered yet.

“I remember I was just a few months removed from winning my first championship in a pretty epic fashion at WrestleMania. So, I mean, I was still riding that wave. So busy, so much going on in my life, I didn’t really have time to to kind of sit back and enjoy what was happening. Now, in retrospect, obviously, I can look back at it. But what what a whirlwind that was, man.”
