Appearing on Big Boy ‘s Neighborhood, WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, talks about crowd reactions in 2020, plus Wrestlemania 37 coming to Los Angeles.
WWE recently announced that the new SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles will be the home for Wrestlemania 37. Taking place on March 28, 2021, Wrestlemania will be the first sports event to try out the new indoor-outdoor stadium.
“I’m excited for mania on the west coast. I’m excited for mania in L.A. The new stadium is gonna be awesome, and we’re kinda get in there before the Olympics get in there. Before the SuperBowl gets in there. We’re gonna be the first major event at SoFi,” says Rollins.
When speaking about the fans, and how quickly they can turn on a wrestler in 2020, Rollins is still trying to figure it out.
“Our audience is crazy. And, in 2020, this culture, I don’t even know how people take in their entertainment. It’s so wild the way they process entertainment these days, and everyone has got a complaint about something, and with social media,” said Rollins.
This is true for Rollins who started 2019 as one of the most beloved WWE superstars. After defeating Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, it seemed his on the road to long baby face run.
That was until fans started to turn on Seth Rollins, prompting a change in the plans. Ultimately Rollins turned heel, and became the Monday Night Messiah.
Part of the turn from the fans perhaps was because of Rollins negative comments towards WWE’s new competition, AEW.
“The shifting of it is so incredible, its nothing I’ve ever seen. One minute you are on the top of the mountain, and the next minute you are the most hated man in america. And, it’s something you did twenty years ago, as an example,” explained Rollins.
With Rollins public relationship to WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, the criticism can be overwhelming when it hits close to home.
“I try to not take it too personal, but when its someone you care about, someone you love, and you cherish more than anybody,” added Rollins. “If they make it personal, it’s hard not to ignore not. That really turns me off from social media, when people feel like they don’t have to have a filter because they’re disconnected.”
