Seth Rollins says he's thriving under the pressure of being WWE Champion

Published 3 Comments

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has said in a recent interview he has been thriving under the pressure that comes with being the top champion in the company.

During an interview with the Miami Herald, Rollins talked about several WWE topics including Triple H, who he thinks from NXT should be called up to the main roster, and being WWE Champion.

The person he would like to see brought up to the main roster is fan favorite and current NXT Women’s Champion, Bayley.

“I would like to see [NXT women’s champ] Bayley,” Rollins said without hesitation. “She is my favorite who is not up here and being used. So hopefully she gets a shot soon.”

When it comes to being a WWE Champion, Rollins said he thanks the fan base for being super passionate and for always having an opinion on him, but he says it’s been difficult and tiring with the added schedule that comes with being champion.

He said: “Everyone wants a piece of you. It was not anything I wasn’t expecting, but certainly a little more strenuous than I thought it would be. You have to go out there every single night. You’re the last match on the show and the last one to leave.

“You have to tear it up and make sure the people want to come back and see more. So it’s a lot of pressure, but definitely a place I thrive.”

Rollins has certainly been tearing it up since becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year. He’s headlined six pay-per-views this year if you count WrestleMania and he’s hardly put a foot wrong.

He is scheduled to headline his seventh PPV at Night of Champions when he defends the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Sting.
