Seth Rollins on The Rock: “He couldn’t lace my boots in his best days let alone now”

During an interview with Submission Radio just prior to the 2024 WWE Elimination Chamber PLE, world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins reacted to recent comments by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

“Yeah, I mean, look, he’s rattled, man. He’s rattled. He’s shook. He came in here thinking he’s going to do whatever he wanted to do. so now he’s trying to throw his weight around and he’s got all the same insults that he’s had for the last 20 years. It’s kind of sad in some ways. But he wants to run his mouth, dude. He’s going to get whooped. I mean, he’s a specimen, but the dude’s out of practice. He hasn’t wrestled in 10 years. I mean, I’m the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. He couldn’t lace my boots in his best days, let alone now. So he can run his mouth all he wants when he wants to show up. I dare him to put hands on me, because he slapped me the way he slapped Cody. If nobody was there to hold me back, oh, baby. I’d be clawing his eyes out of his head. Rey Mysterio, poof, eat your heart out, you know what I mean?”

“You got The Rock back here talking his smack. You got Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes. I mean, we’re in the middle of one of the greatest runs in the history of our industry, and I am psyched to be dead smack in the middle of it.” (quotes courtesy of
