Seth Rollins calls out Brock Lesnar as an "Industry Killer"

Seth Rollins calls out Brock Lesnar as an "Industry Killer"

In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Seth Rollins discusses being in the main event at WrestleMania, having been there once before besting Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar that night to capture the championship.

“[This lead up] has been incredible,” Rollins told Yahoo Sports. “Looking at the road that it’s taken me over my career to get to this point, I feel like every single moment has built up to this moment, this match against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. The future of the business feels like it’s on the line, it feels like a very heavy match, a lot of weight is on it.”

He goes on to discuss Brock Lesnar being a good draw but fans are turning sour as his appearances are sporadic at best.

“I think people are just sick of it,” Rollins said. “You’ve seen and heard it every single week. They want to see a champion who is going to be there, that’s going to represent them, that’s a champion they can be proud of and one that inspires people.

“Brock Lesnar doesn’t inspire anybody. He’s an industry killer, not an industry builder. He cares about no one but himself and he’ll tell you that, it’s been that way his entire life. He was given the opportunity years ago to carry the mantle here in WWE but it was too tough for him and he walked away. Granted, he’s been able to come back and do things on his own terms, but his own terms only serve himself.”

You can read the full interview HERE.

It's worth noting that once in an interview on The Stone Cold Podcast w/ Vince McMahon stated:

"I don't think you want him on television more than he has been. He's a special attraction. ... Brock, per the contract we made with him, only allows us 'X' number of dates. So, to me, it's not about the title. It's not about the title that draws people into the arena. It's about the performer and about his opponent and about the story and how they're going to resolve that story. So it's not really about the title."

Considering fan's reaction to a lack of a present champion on the weekly flagship show, maybe he's wrong as fans routinely sour on the idea of a "part-time champion".
