Seth Rollins spoke to The Wrap about how he was able to get his once banned “Curb Stomp” finisher permitted back in the WWE.
According to Rollins it was no easy task.
“It was a conversation that I had to have with [Vince McMahon]. It was something where he had his reasons for why he wanted to get rid of it at the time.”
“That was a fine and dandy, but I was having trouble getting a finisher that I was happy with and he was happy with. The Pedigree worked for a little bit, and the Ripcord Knee worked OK. But at the end of the day, the Stomp was what I was synonymous with, it’s what I won the title with, it was part of who I was.”
“When it came down to it, I just went and asked him a few years later. I said, ‘Hey look, I want to do this. Give me reasons not to and I will tell you why you’re wrong and hopefully, we can meet in the middle,’” Rollins recalled. “He was on my side, I caught him on a good day. Luckily it’s back and hopefully, it’s not going anywhere.”
It’s a good thing he got it back because Rollins will surely need all that and more if he hopes to vanquish “The Beast” Brock Lesnar this Sunday at WrestleMania 35.
