Not everyone is a fan of WWE’s Wild Card rule.
One Superstar who hasn’t been a fan of the ruling is former WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins.
Rollins spoke with Newsweek.com and talked openly about his critical opinion of the rule.
“The Wild Card really muddled things up, to be honest with you,” Rollins admitted. “Now you’re seeing those guys every single week. It used to feel special when I see the New Day, but now they’re eating pancakes backstage every chance they get on Monday, and I’m not a fan of that.”
“[…] I think once you see the move to Fox, it’s really going to tighten down as far as best Wild Card options and stuff like. It’s really cool to see things come together now and get these cool match-ups you might not get in October or November.”
Despite the Wild Card ruling, Rollins has remained firmly on Monday Night RAW.
Seth explains that “RAW is my gig, man” before adding that, due to SmackDown’s two hour run time, he has no intention of appearing on the show to take over segments. He also mentioned that he has no desire to deal with Shane McMahon more than he has to.
The Wild Card rule went into effect only weeks after WWE held their Superstar Shake-Up—done to freshen up their rosters in order to provide the WWE Universe with new feuds and stories.
nstead, the Wild Card rule was introduced, nullifying a lot of what the Superstar Shake-Up had accomplished.
