Seth Rollins Describes Atmosphere In Saudi Arabia Ahead Of Greatest Royal Rumble
Seth Rollins is featured in the above video released by WWE on Thursday where the Intercontinental Champion talks about the atmosphere in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia ahead of his defense of the title in a Ladder Match at Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble event.
“There’s a lot of energy, this event is really unprecedented and you can kind of feel that,” said the I-C champ. “Our crew along with the local people here, it’s really been an incredible experience so far.”
Rollins continued, “The fanbase is just super excited. I think they’re as, almost nervous and excited and anxious as we are just because it’s such an unprecedented event. We’ve never done anything like this, definitely never had a pay-per-view broadcast out of the Middle East. We’re going to put 10’s of thousands of people in that arena, the card is stacked… it’s really going to be an incredible experience and the energy has been off the wall.”
The Intercontinental Champion also spoke about Friday’s four-way Ladder Match, which also includes Finn Balor, Samoa Joe and The Miz, and how he is looking to keep the title and add to the prestige that comes along with it.
“It’s really my first Intercontinental Championship defense since I won the title at WrestleMania,” said The Architect “You’ve got three guys – Samoa Joe, The Miz and Finn Balor, all of who’d love to go back home as Intercontinental Champion but I really plan on defending this title for a long time. It’s got a storied history and I’d like to be a huge part of that.”
