– WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins recently spoke with The Independent in the UK to promote WWE’s current tour of Europe. The full interview can be found at this link. Below are highlights:

Losing to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 31:

“It takes two to tango I suppose so I guess being on the receiving end of an RKO that people are pretty pleased about is a consolation for losing that match, although was hoping to catch up to Undertaker on the Wrestlemania winning streak!”

The NXT star he would like to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against:

“Probably Sami Zayn. He’s a guy who is one of the most resilient performers that we’ve ever seen, and he’s got an incredible connection with the audience. No offense to Finn Balor but he doesn’t need a crazy entrance and body paint, he doesn’t have all the wild athleticism that Neville has, he doesn’t necessarily have the wits about him that a Kevin Owens does, or the fanfare of Hideo Itami, but he has that little intangible that sets him apart from everybody else.”

Being back in front of the UK fans and having the focus back on their in-ring work:

“I love it over here it’s great. I think the big thing is that we’re only over here twice a year so there doesn’t appear to be an oversaturation of WWE in the British market. The fans seem very excited to see us, they’re very respectful during the matches and just enjoy watching us perform. It’s very refreshing to have that emphasis put back to what we’re doing in the ring. The crowds are electric so it’s a pleasure to come over here and work in front of the British fans.”
