WWE held a talent meeting this week prior to Monday Night RAW to address some concerns from Superstars regarding the travel woes from the company’s recent trip to Saudi Arabia. Some reports suggested that former Universal Champion Seth Rollins made a speech during the meeting.
The speech was described as a “rah-rah speech.” Rollins responded online by calling the reporter a “purveyor of misinformation or at worst an outright, vindictive liar,” before speaking to Fightful to give his side of the story. Here’s what “The Architect” had to say:
Vince (McMahon) and Triple H held an all talent meeting to explain the travel situation returning from Crown Jewel. They commended the talent for their conduct in a tough spot and fielded questions and allowed anyone to voice their feelings on the matter. Some talent spoke up and overall it was a productive forum. I said zero words. I made no speech. Pretty simple.
Another anonymous WWE star told Fightful that Rollins didn’t say anything during the meeting:
Seth did not make a peep during that meeting, didn’t say a word. People are going after him for no reason.
Dave Meltzer’s report of AJ Styles and Rusev speaking up when questions were asked for is reportedly accurate, per a source who spoke to Fightful. It turns out, even Karl Anderson spoke up:
AJ, Rusev and Karl spoke up. Seth didn’t say anything, neither did Randy. Joke, or otherwise. Nothing TO say lol. We were told everything out there was rumors
