The Daily Show appearance
Rollins appears on The Daily Show to challenge host Jon Stewart to a meeting on WWE’s Monday Night Raw.
UK SUN interview
Rollins is interviewed by the UK SUN. He discusses Randy Orton and his relationship with the star.
Randy and I are colleagues for sure, but we were never friends as far as hanging out. Randy’s got his life, I’ve got my life – we were business partners when it made sense. But now it doesn’t make sense any more so we’re at odds again. And if you look at the way things were when we first came in as The Shield, he didn’t like us very much then so it is one of those things where I think he has always harbored a little professional jealousy when it comes to myself. Maybe he’s a little afraid that some of the young guys are going to come in and steal some of his thunder.

Talk is Jericho interview
Rollins is a guest on Talk is Jericho to discuss his entry into WWE and being agile and flexible in the ring.
I had a trampoline when I was young. My parents got divorced and they gave me a trampoline to like… forget about it. So that’s when I started doing flips and stuff and saw what I could do.
Miami Herald interview
Rollins talks to the Miami Herald about Brock Lesnar, Survivor Series and learning from working with “The Authority”.
I’m a sponge in that scenario soaking up all the information I possibly can. You are looking at Triple H, who has pretty much done all there is to do in WWE. You look at Stephanie, who is a McMahon. She has this in her blood. Then you have Kane, who also has been around in many incarnations for a very long period of time. There is so much information and so much to learn about being the man in WWE.
Liverpool Echo interview
Rollins talks about memories with The Shield and being in the main event Hell in a Cell.
Aside from main eventing WrestleMania you really can’t get any bigger than that. You’ve got two guys under the age of 30-years-old, who have been on the main roster for less than three years, and we’re main eventing a pay-per-view, a major pay-per-view, Hell In A Cell, on a show that also features John Cena versus Randy Orton in a Hell In A Cell match as well. So that’s a major milestone, and that’s something that I’m real proud of, something that I’m going to take with me for a long time.
Mix Philadelphia interview
Rollins talks to Mix Philadelphia about The Shield’s place in history among other legendary wrestling factions.
The Shield was only around for..what? Two years? And we did A LOT in 2 years. I think the fact that people even take those 2 years and put them up against the reputations of those other groups really says a lot about what we were able to accomplish in that short period of time…It’s definitely something, two years I’m very proud of and I’m happy to say we certainly left a scar on WWE.
Handicap match street fight announcement
Stephanie McMahon announces handicap street fight main event for the October 20th edition of Monday Night RAW. The match will feature Cena and Ambrose taking on Kane, Orton and Rollins.
Maybe we see if John Cena and Dean Ambrose can act as a team against the team of Kane, “The Viper” Randy Orton let’s put Seth Rollins in there as well.
Ambrose returns to WWE at Night of Champions to confront Rollins. Ambrose runs through the arena to attack Rollins and continues the beating until security pulls them apart.
Rollins talks to WWE.com about how carrying the Money in the Bank briefcase around is a great prank itself as part of the site’s Greatest Pranks series.
The (Money in the Bank) briefcase might be the biggest prank that’s ever been pulled on me, having to carry it around the airport. I don’t mind bringing it to the shows; it’s the airports, because these regular human beings look at me in the airport like I’m some sort of alien walking through the airport with this banged-up, scratched-up briefcase that says “Money in the Bank,” like, “What the hell is that?” So yeah, the briefcase itself is the greatest prank of all.
Rollins talks to AZCentral.com about WWE and creative control of his television character.
I haven’t run into too many hiccups as far as creative control. The guys here are really talented and they do amazing, original programming 52 weeks a year. It’s really unprecedented as far as live television is concerned.
Wins Money in the Bank
Rollins wins the Money in the Bank ladder match granting him a contract for a title match at any time over the next year. Rollins comments.
I told everybody this was going to happen. I said, at the end of the day, I would be at the top of the ladder, I’d be grabbing the contract, and Dean Ambrose would be lying beneath my feet.
DC 101 interview
Rollins sits down with DC 101 to discuss Money in the Bank.
Looking at the field there’s a lot of guys who are going to take risks, I think a lot of people might think I might be one of those guys. But in this scenario, what I’m going to do I think is let the other guys take their risks and when they crash and burn I’m just going to climb that ladder, snatch that contract and be the man for the next year!
Rollins speaks to ArkTimes.com about indy wrestling and wrestling being called “fake”.
Fake is like the worst word you could possibly use to describe anything, you know? What are you talking about? What is fake? It’s a television show, and a live performance. Nothing’s fake about it. We’re not telling you we’re out their fighting each other. We’re going out there to entertain you. I consider myself an athlete.
Digital Spy interview
Rollins talks to Digital Spy about The Shield break up and Hulk Hogan in WWE.
I mean hey, he’s a legend, if he (Hogan) comes back in the WWE that’d be great for us just to have him around. He’s an icon in the history of our business. But, if he steps in our way, he could end up getting triple-powerbombed too.
