Seth Rollins Wants To Create A New Legacy With The WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Seth Rollins thinks the WWE product is too hot right now only to have one world champion that isn’t around and doesn’t want to work live events.

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins was a recent guest on My Love Letter to Wrestling to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about the creation of the new title and it being referred to as the work rate championship, Rollins said simply referring to it as the work rate title is underselling what they’re trying to do.

“I think just kind of calling it the work rate title is a little bit underselling it,” Seth Rollins said. “At the end of the day, the title exists because our roster is so chock full of talent, right? There’s just too much to have one champion that’s not around very much. And so I think the fact that we have so many worthy contenders, people that could hold this championship, I think that is the reason the title exists.

“If we had a weak roster, and things weren’t good, and stuff wasn’t hot, it would be a different story. It might be fine just to have one champion who wasn’t around and didn’t want to make live events, but that’s just not the case. You know, we’re selling out left and right. We’re hot from here to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Paris, France, Mexico City; it doesn’t matter.

“We’re just selling out left and right, and we need to have a World Heavyweight Champion on the men’s side to represent that level of competition, and so I think we’re going to put in the work to build this title to be as big as any championship in wrestling, and we’re not naive to think that we don’t need to put in that work. We know that it needs to happen. But like I said, you’ve got the roster and the guys and the crew who are willing to put in the time to make it feel as big as it is.”
