Seth Rollins was assaulted by Brock Lesnar last Sunday after an exhausting Mixed Tag Team Match and had his WWE Universal Championship taken from him when Lesnar cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase.
While he has every reason to hate Lesnar in kayfabe, Rollins broke character to praise his opponent for SummerSlam. He said that he was an amazing competitor and his in-ring abilities were beyond par.
“Say what you like about him as a human being and as a champion, and I’ve said all of those things in that way. But he is an ultra-competitor, and when the lights are the brightest, he turns it on. He goes, and he can go. For a guy who has been through what he’s been through in his life; from his teenage years and collegiate wrestling, his WWE schedule and UFC schedule, he’s a competitor.”Seth Rollins
