Seth Rollins is not afraid of Brock Lesnar (Video)

Perhaps interviews with Brock Lesnar and John Cena are still to come but so far WWE has only released the above interview with Seth Rollins ahead of the WWE world heavyweight championship triple threat match at "Royal Rumble" this Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, in Philadelphia. It's worth noting that Rollins specifically mentions Lesnar but fails to bring Cena's name up at any point. Significant? We'll see.

"I am not afraid of Brock Lesnar. Let me be perfectly clear when I say I know exactly what I'm getting myself into. I actually did kind of foresee this success for myself. A lot of people might call that arrogant or overconfident -- to me, that's one of the things that has helped me in my success through my time here in WWE. I'm not a sell out, that's just another name people call me. I've never had anything handed to me. It's easy for people to point fingers and pass judgement. It's much harder for people to stand, look in the mirror, and accept who they are. I took risks to get where I'm at that I don't think people have the guts to take on their own in their real lives. If you can't envision yourself as the future, as the guy, you're never going to be that guy. I always saw myself in that position, in that spot. I want to be the guy that carries this company into the next generation and beyond until I decide to hang it up. You can call that the future, you can call that the face; I call it 'Seth Rollins.'"
