Seth Rollins Says There’s A Lot Left In The Shield
Seth Rollins told IGN.com that there is still a lot left in the Shield:
I definitely do. I think there’s a lot of life left in The Shield, especially with the different direction the crowd has taken on with us. I think there’s a long way to go for us as a group — as individuals as well. There’s no reason we can’t advance in both situations. I think people assume that for whatever reason there’s an exclusivity to being a single star and a great stable. But for me it’s never about that. We can all grow as individuals, and we can all be big stars in our own right. The Shield can be as big as it’s ever been. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.
Rollins also discussed working as a babyface:
We’re just doing what we do. I don’t think we’ve necessarily changed that much about us. We’re still black-clad, we’re still out there kicking ass, taking names. For whatever reason, the crowd seems to be on our side at this point. It feels good. It’s nice. The energy levels definitely haven’t gone down at all. If anything, they’ve risen up. It’s a different kind of energy. It’s awesome. I think people have always appreciated what we do, but I feel like for whatever reason now, they just feel like it’s okay to cheer us. So that’s cool. I dig that.
Drew McIntyre Wants UK PPV
Drew McIntyre was asked about the possibility of UK WWE PPV, during an interview with DigitalSpy.co.uk:
I think it’s possible. Obviously there’s a huge time difference with the States, but it worked out for Summer Slam ’92 and it was wildly successful. Personally it’s one of my favourite pay-per-views of all time. Of course, I would love to do a show back home. They can see how passionate the crowds are – if that doesn’t convince you to do a pay-per-view, I don’t know what else will.
I look forward to twice a year is coming back to the UK and seeing the most passionate, wild crowds in the world. All the other guys I know get excited as well.
I have to remind them! Think of the WrestleMania crowd – think of the Raw after WrestleMania. That’s every single night in the UK. The fans are so passionate. It’s just like the football crowds back home. Everybody gets so into it, which makes us get into it even more.
McIntyre also discussed how developmental has changed since he went through the system:
When I first came over it was the end of 2007 – I was still 21. Watching the growth from back then, when it was Developmental, they helped you hone your skills, and get you ready for the big time. It was a like a faraway land – WWE seemed so far away. When you got there it was such a shock.
Now, NXT is its own brand. You’re learning, but at the same time you’re getting a miniature WWE platform to perform on. So when you get up to the big stages it’s not so much of a shock that knocks you down on the ground.
You’re ready, there’s a lot of exposure for some of the characters – the people who watch it are aware of the characters. Everybody is much more prepared. The performance centre in Orlando is the most unbelievable place I’ve ever seen in my life.
