WWE superstar Seth Rollins issued a statement this morning on Twitter ahead of night one of WrestleMania 36. The former Universal champion admits that today’s “Show of shows” seems more strange than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic that forced WWE to tape their biggest event of the year from their Performance Center in front of zero fans. He adds that he hopes today can provide a distraction and a moment of unity for the WWE Universe. Check it out below.
Every year since I was a little boy I’ve woken up on the morning of WrestleMania feeling excited the day had finally arrived. WrestleMania was bigger than Christmas for me.
Since 2013 that excitement has been coupled with surreality as I’ve been so so so fortunate to have played a small role in the lore of the event; hopefully inspiring young children to follow their dreams the way my idols did for me, and giving anyone watching moments to look forward to…and memories to look back on.
Today is WrestleMania and that feels so strange to say. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic nothing feels normal. We’re all trying to figure out what’s happening, what’s right, what’s wrong, and where we go from here. My hope is that this year WrestleMania will not only provide us with all the moments and memories we’re used to, but maybe also some distraction and calmness, some normalcy, and some unity.
I still woke up excited. It still feel surreal. Maybe more than ever…today is WrestleMania.
Rollins is set to face Kevin Owens in a singles-bout at WrestleMania 36.
