Seth Rollins Addresses CM Punk On WWE BACKSTAGE And The Way Fans Have Turned On Him

Seth Rollins appeared on WWE Backstage last night and addressed his one-sided feud with CM Punk, the way fans have turned on him in recent weeks, and his storyline on RAW alongside fiancee Becky Lynch...

During last night's WWE Backstage, Seth Rollins touched on a number of topics, including the fact that he wants a piece of CM Punk...who wasn't on the show for the second week in a row last night! 

"I'm here, he's not here and I'm not shocked about that," Rollins said. "I think I've exhausted all of my energy on the subject. I just don't think it's going anywhere, I'm not shocked that he's not here, so I think it's time to maybe move on to something that matters. I wish he was here. I wish we could have a face-to-face, but it's not in the cards."

The former Universal Champion also addressed his match against Bray Wyatt at Hell in a Cell and admitted that the red lights being on negatively affected his performance before sharing his thoughts on how that might have been the "tipping point" when it comes to fans booing him. 

"I think it affects you—whether you want to fess up to it or not—you read the comments, you hear the small segment of the audiences. Let's be clear, this is not everywhere, I do live events all over the world and I'm not getting booed. There's small contingent of our audience that's very vocal on social media. ... This is my life, I love this business, so when you put so much into it, to feel like I get disrespected. I'm going to push back. I'm not a guy, like [John] Cena who's gonna put motivational quotes on Twitter, or like Roman [Reigns] and kind of hang back."
"It's the cool thing to do is hate me. The cool thing is to hate the guy on top. I'm not going to say I'm the first, I'm not breaking ground. Roman before me, Cena was the same thing, he may have pioneered it. Bret Hart, maybe the same thing."
Rollins added that in hindsight, he wouldn't have taken part in that storyline with real-life fiancee and RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch. That was received extremely negatively by fans and actually may have been the beginning of the end for him as a babyface in WWE.
