‘A lot of things went into Seth Rollins and his relationship with the fans changing slightly. I talked about on Raw this week and had a few observations for Seth. We are similar in a lot of ways, we love this industry, he works very hard. But he comes across as insincere sometimes. Back during his title run when he was talking about the fans and talking about how everyone helped him get there. I didn’t fairly imagine him when he was saying that stuff.
It is because Seth solely loves individuals who might help him get forward and the one particular person he loves on the earth is himself. The followers can see by BS. And the truth that he has turned himself into the Messiah has proved my idea proper. My level is that followers see by the nonsense. I’ve tried to be actual. For those who prefer it that’s cool and when you don’t then additionally it’s cool.”

I was just a bad guy for good guys to wrestle. Eventually, I got the opportunity to be just myself, there was no particular moment when they said for me become face. I never started saving good people, I was just beating people up. I beat No Way Jose’s conga line and people cheered it. It has been a pretty good journey with fans getting behind me.”
