On Seth Rollins recent comments about what Bret said about him being reckless in an interview with Sports Illustrated:

BH: I am a really big fan of Seth’s. I think he’s one of the best young wrestlers in the world today. That’s why I think I made such a strong criticism. It’s meant to make him think. It’s not a personal attack. It’s a professional criticism of his work a few months ago. I think there’s a little bit of an onus here not to own up to what he did. You can watch it back. I watched it back just a minute ago. He clearly knees John Cena as hard as he can in the face. It’s not John Cena’s fault. If you watch it it’s not John Cena leaning in it’s Seth Rollins’ pulling his head down and kneeing him as hard as he can in the face. It’s bullshit. Everything I said is true. If he’s got hurt feelings, well, it’s better to have hurt feelings than a broken, shattered face. My whole gripe with that kind of stuff is that you can’t get injured. The wrestler can’t afford getting hurt. There’s a huge onus on the two wrestlers to protect each other at all costs. If you can’t protect the guy you are working with, if you can’t be more careful than that, then you need to go back to the drawing board. It’s a good criticism. All of those agents in WWE, I don’t know who they are that are schooling these guys and telling them what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong. They should all be chastised for not speaking up too. Including Vince. Including Triple H. What he did was totally wrong. Totally unprofessional. It’s true and it’s not a personal attack. It just means, “Be more careful.” You can’t be hurting guys like that all the time.
