Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have a storied history. For starters, they were a part of The Shield, which dominate WWE and launched both stars into the stratosphere. Post that, they had multiple rivalries that main-evented various pay-per-views. However, it’s been a while they’ve been seen together, but Rollins holds nothing but praise for his former faction member.

“There are people who are on my level. Roman Reigns is on my level. There are people who understand it. Paul Heyman has been around greatness his entire career. There are people who understand that… who get greatness. I’m one of those people.”

Not only did Rollins praise Roman Reigns, but he also compared the ‘Tribal Chief’ to Cesaro. His primary objective of praising Reigns was to take a shot at Cesaro for not being good enough to compete at their level.

“The thing about Cesaro is… and I said it last night. There are levels, okay? There are levels and there is a reason that Cesaro has never had the spotlight at WrestleMania. A reason! Do you know what that reason is? Do you understand what that reason is? That reason is because he is not as good as me.”

Apart from calling out Cesaro for not being good enough, Seth Rollins gave his opinion on Cesaro’s abilities as a Superstar and a pro-wrestler.

“I have been, since the moment I stepped foot in WWE. And my track record at WrestleMania and every other event this company’s ever put on holds that to be true. Cesaro on the other hand has been a wealth of potential. Potential, potential, potential. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Potential is c**p. It means nothing unless you deliver.” H/t SKWrestling.
