Raw Superstar, Seth ‘Frekin’ Rollins was interviewed by Ariel Helwani, from bt sport, and discussed her real life issues with Matt Riddle. The same one he will face this Saturday at WWE Clash at the Castle, in one of the most anticipated matches by the company’s fan universe.
“Yeah, I mean, ever since I’ve known the guy, I never liked his attitude, you know? I have never liked the way he takes care of his business. In many ways, he has disrespected guys who are above his level when he was down in NXT. The Booker Ts, the Goldbergs, the Brock Lesnars, I was like, ‘Dude, do your thing and work your way up, if you’re that good.
“He’s just as talented in the ring as he was in the Octagon (UFC). That’s never been his problem. His problem is his head, mentally putting himself where he needs to be able to perform consistently. He’s trying to find his way to the top, which I kind of respect.”
“You’re going to get there anyway. Just work your way up the right way. I never really liked that. It kicked off and there was an incident with his now ex-wife, where he was siding with her, in a better or worse way, on body shaming. That’s the only way I can put it, my wife (Becky Lynch) and some of the other girls in the locker room, completely without provocation.”
“I understand, as a husband, you have to take your wife’s side, but you can also keep your mouth shut at times. So I felt him take her side, I said, ‘You have to shut up.’ Essentially, the guy opens his mouth when he shouldn’t and says things when he shouldn’t, and that gets him into trouble. I just don’t like the way he behaves.”
It should be remembered that the bad vibes between Seth Rollns and Matt Riddle began when Riddle’s former wife claimed that the women on the main roster were “straight, skinny and fat” and added that they should squat. Additionally, she used a photo of Becky Lynch, Rollins’ wife and the mother of her child, as a reference.
After these statements, Seth Rollins appeared on the Friday Night SmackDown Watch Along special show, which was broadcast during the first night of the Draft, and noted that he had no interest in fighting Riddle. However, the latter noted last year that they were on good terms with Rollins to work together.
However, Rollins considers that the comments made by Riddle’s ex-wife were not for a story.
“No, I don’t know what prompted her to do that. I don’t even know in what context or in what world he thought his opinion was necessary”.
Finally, Seth Rollins was asked if he ever talked about it with Matt Riddle. to which he replied no, when this event happened Riddle was part of NXT and when Rollins was promoted he didn’t feel like working with him. Likewise, Rollins added that he handles things professionally on both sides of the camera.
