WWE superstar Seth Rollins was a recent guest on WWE’s The Bump to talk about his infamous Hell in a Cell showdown against The Fiend last year, as well as give some thoughts on the legendary Undertaker. Highlights are below.
How he was unprepared for the red light during last year’s Hell in a Cell showdown with The Fiend:
Oh God, survive, I guess. They’re scary matches. I’ve had a lot of different experiences. Let me correct you, I won my Hell in a Cell match with The Fiend, thank you very much. Yes, it was a controversial match, but I still won. But yeah, I’ve had some brutal ones. You have to go in there prepared for anything. Last year, I went in unprepared for the red lighting; I didn’t think I had to wrestle in red lighting. Yeah, so, those who are competing, you might have to be prepared for lighting changes… It’s an exciting adrenaline popping thing, but it’s one of those deals where after you’ve done it once, you can let other people handle it.
On his matches with The Undertaker:
They’ve always been super awkward, mostly because he’s terrifying. I don’t know if any of you have sat with him, but he’s just a normal Southern boy, but he’s still The Undertaker. To me, I’m not going to be that kid who dressed up as The Undertaker when I was four-years-old. To be able to have conversations with him, to be able to be in the ring with him, work with him, learn from him, is incredible. Anytime you get 30 years in one industry, you know, you’re a master classman. Yeah, I wish I had fun experiences with ‘Taker, but I’ve always been afraid of him.
