Seth Rollins had some strong words for CM Punk in an interview given today.
Speaking with Nick Hausman of WrestlingInc ahead of tonight’s Royal Rumble, Rollins was asked about Cody Rhodes, FTR, and CM Punk. In regards to Punk, Seth did not hold back in his comments, which you can read below:
Discussing Cody Rhodes: “Look, I never had any disrespect towards Cody Rhodes. The only disrespect I had for Cody Rhodes was that he tried to come in and steal my spotlight. I shouldn’t say try to steal it. He tried to use my spotlight to catapult himself to where he wants to go. So there’s nothing more selfish in the world. Don’t let anything fool you. Cody Rhodes is a selfish SOB. He’s not coming back for anything but himself.”
On a potential FTR return to WWE: “Yeah, great talents. Hell of a tag team. Good guys. Always had a good relationship with them. I’d love to see them come back if they want to come back and hang out with us.”
His thoughts on CM Punk: “Oh, Philly Phil, stay away. Stay away, you cancer, get away from me forever! Yeah, no. I don’t like Phil. I don’t like Phil, he’s a jerk. Did we just figure that out? Did we just figure that out? Everybody in the room is like, ‘Oh, did he say that?’ Yeah, he’s a jerk. Come on. We figured it out over there, we knew it over here. I don’t want him back. Go do something else. Bye-bye. See you later.”
