According to WrestlingDVDNetwork, WWE is planning to release a brand new Seth Rollins biography WWE DVD later this year! The current working title is “Seth Rollins – Building The Architect” and as of right now we can expect to see a documentary and a collection of the best of Seth’s career so far. Read below for a synopsis of the DVD:
Seth Rollins – Building The Architect
“The Architect” has created the perfect blueprint for success in WWE with multiple championships, a massive fan base, and a plethora of incredible matches under his belt. Now for the first time ever, hear from Seth Rollins himself as he tells his story of how he became a sports-entertainment megastar.
Right now, it’s looking like the DVD will be released in May for the UK but no word on when it will be released in the US just yet.
In an exclusive interview with WWE.com, The Icon Sting sat down and talked about his recent injury that he received during his match at Night of Champions against Seth for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
In the interview, Sting had nothing but good things to say about Seth. You can read what he said below:
WWE.COM: How would you describe competing against Seth Rollins?
STING: The biggest pleasure. I’m honored. After 30 years and working with some of the best and some of the greatest, [Rollins] is, I’m telling you, he’s got to be the best I’ve ever worked with. I mean, this guy has it. And I think he’s just scratching the surface on what he will do. I’ve never seen somebody as talented. He’s working two [matches] on Raw, two [matches] on the pa-per-view, he’s involved in every other segment and it’s physical. He’s got guys coming from every angle. There’s a lot on his plate. He’s carrying a lot, and he’s handling it. He’s proven he can do it. I’m just glad I had a chance to work with him. He’s the kind of guy who could be in there with a broomstick and make something very interesting happen, a match that people would love somehow.
WWE.COM: That’s incredibly high praise coming from Sting.
STING: Really, I can’t say enough. He poked his head in the ambulance and said, “Man, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what happened.” I said, “Seth, don’t worry about it. It’s not your fault.” And he, for 15 minutes, he said, “I just wanted to tell you what an honor it was, what a pleasure. I can’t believe I had a chance to get in the ring with you and work with you. I was you for Halloween when I was a kid.” He was on and on about it, but man, this young guy, he doesn’t have any idea how much I appreciate being able to work with him.
STLBaseballWeekly.com spoke with Randy Orton while he was at the St. Louis Cardinals vs. NY Mets game this weekend. The full interview can be found here. In the interview, Orton commented on WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, possibly facing him next and who else he might want to face. Here’s what he had to say about Seth:
“It’s not really fair to say Seth Rollins since I just came out of a program with him. All that aside, from just a business standpoint and just speaking truth, I think he’s the absolute best guy who’s come up in a long time. I know that I can have a really good match with him and it’s entertaining–he’s a fun guy for me to beat up, that’s all I can say.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has had quite the journey, to becoming the figurehead of the biggest wrestling company on the planet. While visiting St. Louis, for Wizard World’s annual Comic Con, Rollins posed for pictures, signed autographs, and had a very informative Q&A with fans. During his sit-down, many topics were broached. Rollins harkened back to his humble beginnings, camping out for an entire week, as a teenager, to get tickets to a Smackdown taping, and the disappointment in his parents’ eyes, when he announced that he was pursuing his dream of becoming a pro wrestler. “I knew I had to prove them wrong,” Rollins added.
Rollins then spoke of the life on the independent wrestler, taking bookings wherever he could find them, crashing on strangers’ couches to save money, and working for pennies, just hoping to get ‘discovered.’ Rollins’ high-octane attack eventually caught the eye of Ring of Honor booker (and co-founder) Gabe Sapolsky. Rollins was brought into ROH, under the name Tyler Black, and was entered into a group called Age of the Fall, with the notoriously insane Necro Butcher.
“Some of the stuff he (Necro Butcher) did was just insane. Sometimes I thought, ‘this isn’t wrestling’, but I wanted to play ball, and didn’t want to lose my opportunity with Ring of Honor.”
Rollins bided his time, and eventually ascended to ROH Champion. Though, when fans caught wind of his developmental deal with WWE, their support turned sour. “At first, it hurt. I felt like Roman (Reigns). But after that, I embraced it, and ran with it.” Rollins talked about appearing on ROH television, and not-so-subtly threatening to take the ROH Title with him to Raw. Instead, Rollins was destined for Florida Championship Wrestling, which would eventually become NXT.
Check out highlights of Triple H’s interview below, courtesy of PWMania.com.
* Triple H says he’s great and has had an awesome week. Regarding Batista, Triple H says that’s what he does is quit things and this probably won’t be the last time. Triple H says he hopes Hollywood works out because he knows Batista well enough to know that he doesn’t have a plan B.
* Triple H says he said the feud would be over when The Shield is no more and he won, he always wins.
* Triple H says Seth Rollins was always the brains of The Shield. He says Rollins was the architect from day one. Cole thought Rollins might be here for the interview. Triple H says he doesn’t control Rollins but says he will be on Friday’s SmackDown to open the show and explain why he did what he did.
* Cole asked if he’s concerned about Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. Triple H isn’t worried and says he knows what The Shield can do but The Shield doesn’t exist anymore. He says Seth Rollins adapted and The Shield perished.
