Seth Rollins addresses production “miscommunication” from the RAW after WWE Wrestlemania 39

As seen during the RAW After WWE Wrestlemania 39 broadcast, Seth Rollins came to the ring but then left without saying a word. During the commercial break, Rollins was seen having words with the ringside crew and he ended up throwing down a mic that he was holding before the break ended.

During an appearance on the SI Media with Jimmy Traina podcast, Rollins explained what happened…

“That was not a big deal. I was upset, but it was mostly production, a miscommunication. That was the night after Mania, and the intent of the segment was to go to break with the audience singing my song, allow them to sing during the break, come back up, they might still be singing, and then drift off into nothingness. For whatever reason, that never made it through to production, so when we go to commercial, instead of letting the crowd party, they did the thing where they black the house, shutdown the music, and play the stupid video packages, which messed up what the whole plan was. The crowd was trying to sing, but you have Stone Cold Steve Austin talking about Broken Skull Ranch. ‘Did no one get the memo?’ It was just a production snafu. In the middle of the commercial break, I’m yelling to try to get it turned off so they could keep singing, but it was already a disaster. The crowd was confused and didn’t know what to make of it. We came back and did the rest of the segment, but it didn’t translate the way you wanted because the crowd wasn’t able to participate the way the segment was meant to be planned. I wasn’t really upset about that, it was just a bad handling.” (quote courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
