WWE: Seth Rollins says he's doesn't have creative control issues

WWE has a massive amount of problems at the moment. The sacking of Alberto Del Rio has allowed racism issues to cloud the company, and that comes on the back of terrible financial news that forced WWE to cut it's budget for 2014 by 20 per cent.

But despite the problems and the pessimistic views of the wrestling entertainment business, Seth Rollins is not one of those that share the opinion that the WWE is down in the dumps. 

Some have questioned the direction of WWE in the face of allegations that the company is mistreating its wrestlers. CM Punk was one of the most popular wrestlers during his time in WWE, but it's understood that the former superstar and champion became angry at being bumped off top slots for pay-per-view's.

Add to that the recent comments by wrestling legend Sting in which he explained that all wrestlers except Bray Wyatt are boring, and you can see why the WWE writers are coming in for some criticism.


But Rollins doesn't agree.

"I haven’t run into too many hiccups as far as creative control," Seth Rollins revealed in an interview with AZCentral.com this week.

"The guys here are really talented and they do amazing, original programming 52 weeks a year. It’s really unprecedented as far as live television is concerned."

Wrestling comparisons

Rollins interview with AZCentral involved much more than him backing the current approach of WWE. Asked if there is much of a difference between wrestling for WWE and other wrestling companies, Rollins came up with an interesting answer.

"Sometimes I wrestled in front of very small crowds for very small amounts. I’ve done bingo halls and tents in front of 10 people with a cow mooing in the background. Doing that and then going to WrestleMania and the Superdome and wrestling in front of 80,000 people is night and day,"
"The crazy thing is that at the core of it all, however you’re doing it, in front of however many people, it’s the same. You’re telling a story and interacting with the crowd."

Huge wrestling fan

Seth Rollins love for WWE isn't there just because it's what he does day to day, with the former member of The Shield revealing that he was a huge fan growing up.

"I grew up a huge fan of the WWE. I was a big Hulkamaniac growing up in the early ’90s. It really captivated my interest. You could turn on the TV and see real-life superheroes," Seth Rollins added.
