No matter what time of the year it is, there are always rumours flying around about WWE's next WrestleMania event.

Specifically, there have been recent rumours about what matches we should expect at WrestleMania 35 next year at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

One match that has been highly touted is Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey. Another, which hasn't gone down well with one superstar, is Roman Reigns vs The Rock.

Doing the media rounds ahead of SummerSlam this weekend, Seth Rollins spoke to Sports Illustrated where he was asked about this possible match.

The Kingslayer replied by saying he would much rather have Rollins vs Reigns because, at some point, the WWE needs to learn to move on from past stars like The Rock so they can build up their current roster to that level.

Here's how their conversation unfolded:

"SI: There’s a rumor that at WrestleMania, it’s going to be Roman Reigns vs. The Rock. When you hear that, what’s the first thing that pops into your head?

"SR: I’d like it to be Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins.

"SI: What about Seth Rollins vs. The Rock?

"SR: That’s cool, too. Don’t get me wrong. I love Rocky. I think he’s great. Love everything he’s done for this business. But my gut, my first instinct, says we don’t need him.

"We don’t need him. If we’re not the guys who can main event WrestleMania, then how are we ever gonna be The Rock? How are we gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin? We can’t hold onto these guys forever. We just can’t.

"To me, let’s do Seth Rollins-Roman Reigns before we do Seth Rollins-The Rock. That’s me."

Rollins isn't the only one, as there are many WWE fans that have been frustrated with how much WWE has been relying on past superstars for WrestleMania despite the quality on their current roster.

The last seven WrestleMania main events have all been co-headlined by a part-time wrestler. Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Triple H, Batista, and The Rock have all helped close out the WrestleMania main event since 2012.

In order for WWE to create future stars like The Rock, they need to give their current superstars a chance to shine. 

Rollins will take on Dolph Ziggler this Sunday at SummerSlam for the Intercontinental Championship.
