Rollins says some nice things about Punk, still comparing him to the selfish Logan Paul

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Seth Rollins was doing media at the Super Bowl in Phoenix this week. It makes sense that Rollins is a huge football fan – and an excellent representative for WWE.

Making it in front of the mainstream press assembled in Arizona for the NFL championship game that takes place on Sunday (February 12) is also a great place for Seth to sell his boom WrestleMania 39 Feud with YouTube mogul Logan Paul. Paul’s name is well known to people outside of the wrestling world, and his rumored showdown with Rollins in Southern California on April 1 or 2 will be a big part of WWE’s promotion of the biggest event of the year.

during Appearance on Fox Sports Radio Covino & RichRollins was making his talking points about Logan Paul: The “Media Megastar” who knocked him out of the Royal Rumble last month has a lot of potential, Seth admires his hustle, but questions his passion for the wrestling business. Seth Things Paul uses WWE and takes points from people like him who have dedicated their lives to pro wrestling, just so he can polish his own brand.

After covering the topic, hosts Steve Covino and Rich Davis said their “huge wrestling fanatic” friend told them to ask Rollins about CM Punk. Seth directs them to his earlier comments on “Chicago Phil,” then relates his troubles with Punk to Logan Paul – and praises the AEW star (?):

Well, I don’t need to repeat what I said about the Chicago Phil in an interview last week. If you need to, I’m sure you can Google it. See, bottom line is, it’s the same as it is with Logan Paul. Punk and Logan Paul Two different personalities – but both are selfish as they come. And if you don’t want to help, I don’t want you to be a part of our industry. I don’t want you to be a part of our company, and that’s all there is.

“Here’s the thing, I’m going to say one thing about Punk – I’m going to end it on a positive note with him. This guy has given my career so much, that it pains me to have to say bad things about him, because he helped me. He really did. He’s been a good guy to me in so many ways.” Of my career. But for whatever reason, maybe the last six or seven years have been in a different void and we’re not on the same page. And to see what he’s kind of done, what’s taken and taken – it’s always been about him. I’m not a fan. I I’m not a fan, I’m not a fan of it.”

Rollins wraps up this thread, and the interview, with some hope for Punk’s future (just in time given the latest report on the health of the former ROH, WWE, and AEW champ):

“…there’s a place for him, man. He’s got a lot to give. I just hope — I hope his head is in the right place.”

Barring something unexpected, it looks like we’re definitely headed for a Logan Paul/Seth Rollins match at WrestleMania. The bigger questions are: Will Punk ever return to wrestling, and/or have something to say in response to Rollins’ comments?

And will Seth be able to focus on selling his WrestleMania show, or will his attitude towards Punk continue to show?
