WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins was recently interviewed on “The Show” for 105.3 in San Diego yesterday to promote last night’s Monday Night RAW. Rollins talked quite a bit about Brock Lesnar and the Universal Championship. He talked about Lesnar being a part-timer as World Champion and believing that his Intercontinental Championship is the real top title on RAW. Here are the highlights:
Brock Lesnar being a part-time Universal Championship: “I understand it. I understand Brock Lesnar – Brock Lesnar is our Universal Champion right now and he hasn’t been on our Monday Night Raw television show in some time. So, from my perspective, as a person who is on every show, every week – I’m out on the live events trying to bring people in to see these shows, it’s slightly insulting to me – he’s the champion, he’s the face of our show, and he’s not at our live events.
“So, people who watch the television show, they’re not getting the same thing when they get to the live events. So it makes it hard on us as a team to sell tickets.”
The Intercontinental Championship being the real top title on RAW: “I think the champion makes the championship. What I do every week is try and be the champion that the show needs, since the one we got isn’t around to be that champion. So, yes, to me the Intercontinental Championship is the Championship of Raw, and has been for the last year – cause that’s about how long Lesnar has been Universal Champion off and on.”
