But back then, no one could have predicted that ‘The Architect‘ would be 6-1 in WWE’s biggest summer event, SummerSlam. The event is second only to WrestleMania. So a win at SummerSlam is huge and Rollins has six of them.

Talking to Alex McCarthy of “TalkSport” before his Saturday’s bout against Edge, Rollins revealed what an honor it was for him to be compared to Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart.

“I have had a good run of SummerSlam matches, I will say. Obviously being compared to The Hitman there is high regard, so that’s pretty incredible. But at this point in my career, SummerSlam is huge, man. Especially this year. The match itself against Edge is huge, but the event is huge.

“It’s the first time we’re going to be able to be inside of a full stadium in a year-and-a-half, so it’s really exciting to know we’ve got that upcoming on Saturday. The pressure is on. To me, SummerSlam is always number two on the calendar for WWE. As a kid, I loved it so being able to be a part of the lore and the history and the legacy of this event is pretty special. I lace them up extra tight for SummerSlam.”

It is an honor just to be spoken about in the same sentence as Bret Hart, and Rollins is being compared to him! He has earned his place in WWE and deserves everything he has achieved.
