Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

Quote:
WWE Universal champion*Seth Rollins*has addressed Jon Moxley's criticism of WWE.

In an interview Monday with Jimmy Traina on the*Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Rollins discussed the comments Moxley made*during the former WWE star's appearance on*Talk Is Jericho*after signing with All Elite Wrestling:

"Ambrose can do what he wants. He's a big boy, he's got his big boy pants on. He can go out there and say whatever he wants, but the bottom line is not everybody's equipped to handle the rigors of WWE and the schedule and how it affects you mentally and emotionally. And Ambrose gave everything he had to the company for the entire time he was here. He put his heart and soul into the travel, into the schedule, into the injuries, into the work in the ring and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, he took his ball and he went home, or he went elsewhere at least. And I think it's a little presumptuous of him to get on a podcast and talk down about the company that gave him such an opportunity."

Rollins acknowledged that Moxley did mention some of his good experiences in WWE, such as meeting his wife, Renee Young. The Beast Slayer also professed his love for his former Shield brother even though he took issue with the way Moxley expressed himself:

"And like I said, I love the guy. I love him, I'll always love him, but at the end of the day, we just share different perspectives about what we want out of life and about where we're at in our own lives. I hope that he does well. I've kept enough tabs on him to know that he's doing super well for himself right now and I'm happy for that, but I just don't think there's any reason to hop on a soapbox and complain after the fact. You need to take the first step, and that's looking in the mirror and asking yourself did you do every single thing you possibly could to make yourself and your situation what you want it to be, and if the answer is yes you did, then you can go elsewhere and complain. If that's where he's at mentally then go right ahead, but if he hasn't done that, he hasn't looked in the mirror and made that decision, then maybe he should think about that. That goes for any other disgruntled talent past or present."

During his appearance on*Talk Is Jericho, Moxley primarily took aim at Vince McMahon and WWE's creative process. Moxley lamented the fact that everything is scripted and questioned if McMahon should still be the one making final decisions.

Rollins offered a counterpoint Monday and suggested that it is on the talent to make their voice heard and to also make the most of things even if they aren't in complete agreement:

"Absolutely I'm satisfied with it because I make a point to be satisfied with it. I make a point to contribute my ideas and my thoughts, and if I feel strongly about something the way it should be or the way it should be portrayed, then I will make my voice heard. And look, not everybody gets that leeway. And also, not everybody should get that leeway. That's not how it works. You have to build equity with your audience, with your boss, with your co-workers. You have to build equity over time and then you can get the leeway to have that kind of say in your story if that's your complaint. Or you can just stand up for yourself and do it instead of going on somewhere else and b---hing about it. I'm very satisfied with the amount of input I have. Do I do things that I don't always want to do? Yes, but you know what, sometimes that stuff works because I can't see things perfectly every single time. I don't have the perspective that other people around me have. Vince McMahon has been doing this 20 years longer than I've been alive. So he's got some ideas and he knows things that I just don't know that I have to learn."

Alongside Moxley and Roman Reigns, Rollins made it to WWE's main roster in 2012 as part of The Shield. During their time together, the trio was booked as a dominant force and established itself as one of the top stables in wrestling history.

Upon breaking up, Rollins was pushed to the top as a heel, and Reigns was pushed to the top as a face. Moxley branched off as a face, but his booking was inconsistent, and it wasn't until 2016 that he won the WWE Championship.

Both Rollins and Reigns are multi-time champions, and they seemingly aren't given as much comedic content as Moxley was, which likely contributed to Moxley's disdain for WWE's creative process.

Although it can be argued that Rollins has been the beneficiary of better booking than Moxley was in WWE, they were long linked as both partners and opponents yet have a significantly different perspective on the situation.

Rollins has been*outspoken*in recent days about his belief that WWE provides fans with the best wrestling in the world, and not even one of his closest friends can convince him otherwise.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

He sounds pretty fucking butthurt for someone who claims he doesn't care. Mox never threw shade at talent, he just dropped some truth and how he felt about it. Bet you Seth sings a different tune once he inevitably gets depushed and Becky dumps him like the lil fuckboi he is.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

I don't think Seth has ever been real friends with Roman and Moxley...
That must been just a large wrestling storyline enhanced by rumors from superwikinerdy reviewer Dave Meltzer who surely was in good terms with the E in the early days of the Shield.


Top 10 for 2019: Becky Lynch, Nikki Cross, Ronda Rousey, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Toni Storm, Carmella, Taynara Conti, Jessamyn Duke, Bayley.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

Seth was quite understanding of Mox's positions before. I remember he said some stuff about "getting" Mox's frustrations. But Seth has been in all out shill mode since the interview, and now that the WWE's bottom seems to have fallen out.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

Some people are happy being well paid actors and some guys want to actually be pro wrestlers I guess

Nothing wrong with either of their opinions at all. Though I would be interested to know how much of this is how Seth really feels and how much is pandering to the company he works for to keep his position (not that there is anything wrong with doing that)

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

He took personal critical shots at somebody he claims is a friend that he loves to defend his boss.

Seth is so deeply tongue kissing Vince's ass he can tell you what Vince had for breakfast.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

Seth is coming across like such a Diva lately. Slowly losing respect for him to be honest.

Was this interview from the kitchen where he was making THE MANS sandwich?

I'd question how true a friend he really is with Mox over question his feelings towards Vince.

Re: Seth Comments on Mox’ WWE podcast

Rollins is extremely unlikable on top of being shit at his job. Of course he'd love it in WWE, he is the golden boy, doesn't need to worry about drawing ratings or drawing a house, he can just keep cutting his awful promos and keep having his video game matches and they'll keep him on top. He could never thrive in an organization where you actually have to get over and draw money
