Rollins admits it’s rough for him to talk about the match because he wants that spot. 

This coming Saturday, Sami Zayn is going to be challenging Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. If Reigns is to retain, next up on the docket is a title defense against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39

Ahead of this weekend’s Premium Live Event, Seth Rollins joined Sports Guys Talking Wrestling and was asked for his thoughts about Reigns versus Rhodes potentially taking place at WrestleMania. 

He admitted that it is tasking for him to talk about the match because he wants to be in that position. Nonetheless, Rollins described the matchup as ‘generational’ and thinks it’ll be incredible. 

I don’t know the answer to that question man (if Cody Rhodes is the one to dethrone Roman Reigns). It’s very hard for me to look at that match unbiased, I think. I want that match, I want that spot, I want that title and to not have it, there’s a lot of salt in the wound having to talk about it so, it’s difficult for me to analyze. I will say you’re looking at two — a rock and a hard place, you know? You’ve got Roman Reigns who’s on an incredible run but you’ve got Cody Rhodes who’s riding a lot of momentum and so, when those two guys meet, if that is the match, could be Sami Zayn in that spot, who knows? We’ll see after (Elimination) Chamber. It’s gonna be a generational main event of WrestleMania. Again, hard for me to feel any way but slighted by it so, that is what it is. But, I’ll take a page out of Renee’s book (Rollins referring to Special Olympics athlete) and I will support, I will support my family, my brothers and regardless of the outcome, it’s not about winning or losing, it’s how you play the game. It’s gonna be an incredible main event of WrestleMania no matter what it is.

Rollins will be part of the men’s Elimination Chamber match for the United States Championship. He’s part of a field that includes Bronson Reed, Montez Ford, Johnny Gargano, Damian Priest and the champion Austin Theory.
