Upon arriving at WWE NXT, multi-time WWE Champion Seth Rollins had some bad habits to break, according to Road Dogg.
During a live Q&A session for Ad Free Shows about some of the bad habits independent talent had picked up before their arrival on NXT, The Road Dogg cited Seth Rollins as an example.
You can check out some highlights from the Q&A below:
On giving advice to Rollins early in NXT: “He always did this in the corner where he jumped up and down and jumped up and down, and ran like he was in a mosh pit, and then just run and hit the guy with a forearm. And I thought, ‘that’s so anti -climatic.’ It seemed like the build up to it was bigger than the finish. So I went up to him and told him that, and he said, ‘No, that’s what I do. I’m not changing it. That’s what I do.’ And I went to [Triple H] and I said, ‘Well, that boy, I’ll never talk to him again.’”
On Rollins; bad habits in NXT: “His bad habit was not to say, ‘Okay, thank you, sir’ or whatever and to be respectful and then not do what I said like any other young wrestler. At least pretend you respect what I say, you know what I mean? And what I told him was right. He did change it, and he came up with something that was more of a bigger doll than the setup.”
On NXT management setting Rollins straight: “They had a ‘come to Jesus’ speech with him down there. And he changed his whole philosophy and perspective on how he looked at things, and look at him now, man. On top of the world, and also doing some of his best work, I might add.”
Building on NXT around college athletes now, more than independent wrestlers: “I think they want to build their own athletes and I don’t know how many more there are. But I still think they will hire people from the independent scene. I think it will just be younger talent that hasn’t been around for ten years.”
