The Shield​WWE star Seth Rollins was recently interviewed for RedeyeChicago.com, and he spoke on a number of topics including his time in WWE developmental and his future in WWE. The following are interview highlights:

On his time spent in WWE developmental:

"I think the couple of years in developmental was really starting to get me impatient. It's not a bad thing that you get that mindset because you want to be on the main roster and working with the top guys.

I spent a lot of time on the independent scene honing my craft, so I thought I was ready from day one. But the time I spent in NXT was the best things that could happen in my career. It gave me the mindset that I could succeed at the highest level. When it was time to get called up and The Shield was ready to make an impact, I was nervous, excited, but most importantly prepared for [it]. I think that preparation and confidence came across well in front of the WWE universe."

Where he sees himself in 5 years:

"I see myself as world champion," he said. "If you were in my position and you aren't saying that, something is wrong with you. I want to be holding a title, beating up John Cena and Randy Orton and headlining pay-per-views. I have the confidence and drive and those goals would be satisfying."
