“I thought it was ridiculous”


One of the recent wrangles and segments of WWE that will be remembered for decades to come was the angle where Seth Rollins came face to face with Rey Mysterio at Extreme Rules and ended with the eye of Rey Mysterio “coming out” of his head. While the entire segment was hugely controversial, Seth Rollins spoke to TalkSPORT about it and confessed that this is exactly what WWE is trying to achieve. Monday Night Messiah also spoke about Vince McMahon’s role in the segment.

“I think we kind of accomplished what the wrestling wants to accomplish and is that we told a very interesting story and there was outside interest in the finish although it was very strange – and it’s OK.

Seth Rollins went on to clarify Vince McMahon’s role in the segment and how the match was booked.

Seth Rollins admitted that Vince McMahon was the one who played a big part in the layout of the match and the fact that there were multiple arrivals involved. However, for the bulk of the game, it wasn’t Vince McMahon, but Jamie Noble, Rey Mysterio and himself who got the job done. He also said that when the game was first thrown at him, he wasn’t too sure.

“Again, when the idea was presented to me, I was appalled. I thought it was ridiculous and a little fun. But the more I thought about it and the more it happened, I was like “OK, that will be different”. And that can be good and we don’t have to laugh at everything right off the bat – I don’t want to be that person. Vince was not as active as people think. If I want to break the fourth wall here, so to speak, it was really 99.9% myself, Rey Mysterio and Jamie Noble. ”

In the end, Seth Rollins revealed that it was Vince McMahon who decided what would happen and what the last shot would look like.

“” At the end of the day you had Vince making the final choice on what the last shot was going to look like and that was about it. There were a few versions of what this last shot would look like and we went with the one we thought made the most sense, it was a joint decision on behalf of everyone.
