Seth Rollins comments on WWE Releases: “Today’s A Difficult Day For Everyone”

WWE Superstar Seth Rollins commented on WWE’s releases and to call for people to show love and empathy during a “tiring day” for those in and just now out of WWE. Seth Rollins talked about how hard of a day it is for WWE.

Seth Rollins commented on the releases below with the statement below.
“It is just a difficult day for all of us. My heart is broken for the guys and girls who I’m really close with who had it the worst today. And that goes for, you know, talent you guys love on screen, but also everyone backstage too, who’s off-screen, who may not get the social media fanfare that some of the talent is getting.”

Seth continued on, commenting on the negativity toward the WWE over this hard decision.

“But one thing I am seeing, that is a little upsetting to me is, all the negativity and hostility toward WWE. This is a difficult day for everyone. For all of us. And I think, if ever there was a moment for us to unify, to band together and to try to do the best we can to try and keep this business alive the best we know how, this is that moment. And I think pointing fingers, or saying, ‘You should have done this, you should have done that’ is — I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel like the time or the place for it. I feel like this is a day for compassion, and for empathy, and for understanding, and to try and support each other, you know? To pick each other up.”
