Rollins on Lesnar being a part time champion: “it’s slightly insulting to me”

Dec 11, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

Seth Rollins was recently a guest on 105.3 in San Diego. This was in order to promote this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

During the interview, Seth was asked his thoughts on Brock Lesnar being a part-timer in WWE while being the current Universal Champion. This is a topic that has been heavily discussed among wrestling fans over the past year or so.

Here is what Seth had to say about Brock and his part-time status:

“I understand it. I understand Brock Lesnar – Brock Lesnar is our Universal Champion right now and he hasn’t been on our Monday Night Raw television show in some time. So, from my perspective, as a person who is on every show, every week – I’m out on the live events trying to bring people in to see these shows, it’s slightly insulting to me – he’s the champion, he’s the face of our show, and he’s not at our live events. So, people who watch the television show, they’re not getting the same thing when they get to the live events. So it makes it hard on us as a team to sell tickets.”

“I think the champion makes the championship. What I do every week is try and be the champion that the show needs, since the one we got isn’t around to be that champion. So, yes, to me the Intercontinental Championship is the Championship of Raw, and has been for the last year – cause that’s about how long Lesnar has been Universal Champion off and on.
