Rollins said, “There’s a few obviously that come to mind. We’ll go, maybe chronologically here, in reverse. The Edge match at the garden, the last time we were there was a really special one for me. I mean, I know it was a somber ending. But it was a really fun atmosphere and a cool opportunity to have. You know, we don’t do television tapings there very often anymore. So that was really fun for us.”

He next mentioned The Shield’s first match against Team Hell No and Ryback at the Barclays Center. Rollins admitted that match was special for all three members of The Shield as it got their careers in the mainstream. Lastly, he talked about winning the Ring of Honor World Championship in the Hammerstein Ballroom.
