On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, former AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa reacted to how WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was treated at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff event last week.
At last week’s press conference, Cody Rhodes turned down the chance to wrestle Rollins in favor of Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XL.
Rosa said, “They’ve been insulting him this whole entire time. I just hope, I really do hope, that there’s a good payoff for both of them. As a performer, when you have to do certain things to make other people look good that will make your character diminish, it’s rough because you’re going to suffer a lot of criticism from the fans.”
Mickie James lavished praise on Rollins, calling him a workhorse champion. She said,
“I think people forget how damn good Seth is. When he says something like he’s been here the whole time and he’s a workhorse and he’s always defending his championship and he’s always in these marquee matches he’s always going to have a killer match at every PPV he’s at including WrestleMania, obviously, and it felt a little minimized. I hope at the backend that he steps into that; that’s a real thing of going, ‘Hold on, I’m Seth freaking Rollins.’”
