Seth Rollins faces off against Dean Ambrose inside the dreaded steel cage at Hell in a Cell this weekend.
The former Shield star faces off against one of his former partners for the first time at a Pay Per View event, with the two co-headlining a main event just months after splitting up as a group.
In the build up to the match inside the cell, Rollins and Ambrose have been on a marketing push ahead of the event and Rollins spoke to Digital Spy about the fight and his thoughts building up to it.
CM Punk's Absence
Over the course of the interview, the subject turned to CM Punk and his absence from the organization ever since he walked out after the Royal Rumble in January of this year. And in a break from the company line when talking about Punk, Rollins actually revealed that he is kind of pleased for Punk to be getting some time away.

Rollins was asked whether he will ever be back, possibly before WrestleMania 31.
"Before WrestleMania 31 highly, highly unlikely. Down the road?"
"Part of me was 100% sure he'd be back at some point but the longer he's away, the more it makes me wonder that maybe he's gone."
"He spent a good portion of his life dedicated to this business, it's good for him to maybe get away," Rollins said.
"He's done all there really is to do. So I hope that he's happy and I hope that he's doing well for himself and enjoying his life away from wrestling."
"You know, that's what we all work for is to be able to retire early and enjoy our lives, so I hope that's the case for him."
Rollins went on to say in the piece that it would be a real kick to the gut if his match against Ambrose was pushed down by John Cena vs Randy Orton, the possibility of being a Paul Heyman guy in the future and his rivalry with Orton.
