Seth Rollins continued his quest to claim the award of 2019's Most Cringeworthy Wrestler when footage of him criticising Kenny Omega for "playing in the minor leagues" emerged earlier this week, and it looks like his words upset legendary announcer Jim Ross, who addressed the struggling WWE Universal Champion on a recent episode of his Grilling JR podcast.
"You're right, I'm p*ssed off about it," Ross said when asked about the situation by co-host Conrad Thompson. "Number one, it doesn't do any favours for our business. I'm not inferring that Seth thinks he's bigger than the business but by what he says sometimes, you can make that assessment. It's just not a classy thing to say for an athlete of his designation."
"Rollins is in a great spot, he's blessed," JR added, before dropping the body: "maybe someday he'll be as over as his girlfriend."
Please, can somebody check Mr. Rollins for signs of life?
Ross also claims that he has spoken to WWE Hall-of-Famers who told him they were "embarrassed" by the comments, and questioned Seth's drawing record, saying he "doesn't know how many houses Seth has drawn that sold out."
