Video Package: Seth Rollins’ injury with footage of him rehabbing his first knee injury
Michael Cole interviews WWE COO Triple H
Michael Cole interviews Triple H via satellite. Cole asks for Triple H’s reaction to that video package and Rollins’ promise to be at WrestleMania. Triple H says they have to take their hat off to WWE. The world class care they provide to their athletes is second to none. WWE spares no expense when it comes to their talent. We have to hope that someone like Seth Rollins listens to the experts and utilizes that advice. Last week when Seth Rollins said he would be at WrestleMania no matter what, he took it as ignorance. When the best doctors tell you that you shouldn’t be there and you show up, that’s stupidity. Rollins lies to himself and tells people he’s “the man,” which is a lie. Triple H has been called a lot of things in his career like “The Game” or “The Cerebral Assassin,” but other people called him that. He didn’t have to call himself “the man” because it was obvious. Rollins has to call himself that because it’s a lie. Rollins thinks the lie can become the truth at WrestleMania. WrestleMania is where dreams come true, and Rollins wants his dream to become true. If Rollins shows up to WrestleMania against doctor’s orders, it’ll be his nightmare. If Rollins calls him out at WrestleMania, it’ll be the last thing he ever does in a WWE ring.
