During an interview with Good Morning Football, WWE RAW world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins commented on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson being part of WWE Wrestlemania 40…
“Hey, look, man, if The Rock wants to jump on the bandwagon, ride my coattails into Wrestlemania, that’s totally fine with me, man. That’s fine with me. Look, I get it. WWE is as hot as it’s ever been. We are selling out arenas, stadiums. Any place we go right now is huge. We just inked two massive deals. Smackdown to USA Network and Raw. My show, which I’ve been anchoring for the last decade, just signed the most lucrative television deal in the history of professional wrestling with Netflix, which is going to be a game changer starting next year. So we are living life right now, man. We are huge. And for The Rock to want to come on board now, jump on my Wrestlemania, get his toes wet. I get it. So mad respect to him and everything he’s done outside of here and everything he’s done for our industry. So I got no problem with The Rock jumping on and doing his business for us, man. I mean, we appreciate having him. Like I said, he’s riding my coattails.
Look at the numbers. Look at who’s been on Monday night RAW for the last ten years more than anybody. It’s me. I get the credit, not him. So he can come in, he can get what he wants. He can take his little piece, and then he can go back to Hollywood and do this thing, because we got this thing. We don’t need you. We love to have you but we don’t need you big guy.”
“We don’t need ya, we’d love to have ya but we don’t need ya big guy.”
