– As seen above, Brian Fritz of Between The Ropes caught up with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins at the WWE 2K16 media event in New York City this weekend. Below are some highlights:
* Rollins has played WWE 2K16 already and says it continues to improve.
* He’s learning a lot as champion and has been enjoying the run, he calls it incredible. He says there’s a lot of pressure every night to “be the man” but he’s enjoying it. Rollins says he thrives under pressure and likes being in that position every night. He says he loses a little bit of his edge when he doesn’t have any pressure and says he performs better when he has something to prove.
* Regarding being the first guy from The Shield to be champion, he always knew it would be him but he says all three of The Shield members are breakout singles stars. He just happened to be the guy to get the title first. He says they will probably be flip-flopping the title back and forth for years to come.
* Rollins has surprised himself by getting better with promos. He didn’t have opportunities for 15 minute monologues in NXT and other promotions but with more practice and patience, and learning, he feels like he’s gotten pretty good at it.
* He says the SummerSlam match with John Cena will be insane as far as the crowd in the Barclays Center goes.
* When he broke Cena’s nose on RAW a few wees back, Rollins says he, Cena and the referee all instantly knew it was broken. His first thought was “oh shit” because you could feel and hear it. He’s been in the ring for some wild injuries before but the Cena nose injury was as gruesome as they come.
* He’s extremely proud of what’s going on with NXT and says those Superstars are his boys, the guys he’s ran with for years. He gives props to the NXT Divas too, saying they’re changing the game for women in sports. He feels like a leader when it comes to NXT and says they’re changing the game.
