In a new interview with talkSPORT, WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins discussed Dean Ambrose’s exit from WWE, and what it means for him to be Universal Champion. Below are some highlights:
Seth on the Superstar Shake-up and SmackDown’s move to FOX:
“For the past six or seven years, everything has revolved around the three of us in some way, shape or form. You mentioned [Dean] Ambrose leaving and Roman [Reigns] going to SmackDown, it really is a lot of extra pressure on me to just be the man, be Seth Rollins, be Monday Night Rollins! Kind of put the show on my shoulders and with SmackDown moving to FOX in the fall, it’s going to be a huge deal for them as well so it’s going to be a dog fight between Raw and SmackDown, man.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge, looking forward to a lot of new competitors and matchups with the Shakeup and everything, so it’s definitely exciting. Obviously nerve-racking and everything because it’s kind of the first time we have jumped into these waters, but I’m excited to see how far I can swim.”
