Seth Rollins Talks The Shield’s Entrance, WWE WrestleMania, & More

The Shield are one of the hottest acts in the WWE. It is easy for three young guys to let their instant stardom get to their heads yet for Seth Rollins, he is a wrestling fan living out his dream.

The more I read about Seth Rollins the more I really like him. He appears to be one of the most down to earth and level headed wrestlers in the WWE. Quite frankly that appears to be the attitude of the majority of the new stars. If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in the ring with your wrestling heroes, Seth Rollins will tell you all about it.

Rollins recently talked to IGN.com about a variety of topics. One is whether he is still a big wrestling fan and according to Rollins, he is living out his dream.

Yeah, getting to have conversations actually with guys that I idolized or being across the ring from someone like an Undertaker, that’s crazy stuff. That’s stuff you never ever think’s going to happen to you. I always wanted to be a wrestler, and I always thought that this was a place I was going to end up, just because that was the goal for me. But some of these things that we’ve done over the past year and a half have been really surreal, just being in a WrestleMania, wrestling guys like Undertaker and being in the ring with The Rock. You think those guys are going to be long gone by the time you get here. For them to be around and having a WrestleMania match with the Outlaws and Kane, who I watched when I was 12 years old, that’s just crazy stuff, man. That’s stuff you can write chapters in your book, you know what I mean? It’s just crazy.

It’s funny because most fans were disappointed when The Shield were booked against the New Age Outlaws and Kane at WrestleMania. Yet to someone as humble as Rollins, it was a thrill to work with guys he used to watch as a kid growing up. If that’s the case he must be ecstatic about working with Evolution.

Rollins also talked about their entrance. The Shield continue to come through the crowd but what will happen when the trio inevitably splits up? Rollins talks about the day he may just have to go down the ramp like everyone else on RAW and SmackDown.

Yeah, I like it a lot (the entrance). It’ll be weird if we ever have to come through the stage. That’ll be strange! But it’s cool, man. Every time we go up there and we’re waiting to come down, we get a little crowd that kind of surrounds us, and there’s a lot of energy there. As soon as that music hits, man, it’s just like, “Boom!” You know what I mean? Everybody turns around and stands up. It’s just a crazy energy. I can’t really describe it. It’s awesome.

Finally, Rollins talks about when he, Ambrose, and Reigns knew they had something with The Shield. I always like to ask this question on shoot interviews as the answers vary from star to star. Rollins thought they had something special immediately.

Yeah (on everything coming together), and I can’t really pinpoint an exact moment when we knew it was going to be good. For whatever reason, man, it was just clicked with the three of us. We all had the same work ethic and the same goal in mind from day one. We wanted to be the best, and we wanted work as hard as possible to get there. For whatever reason, it just all seemed to come together. We complemented each other very well, not just as performers, but as people too. It’s good for everybody.

Overall this was a great interview with some interesting perspective from a guy who is quickly becoming one of the biggest stars in the business. Check out the entire interview on IGN.com.
