While speaking with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Seth Rollins noted that he had a reputation for injuring people in matches. However, his match with Rhodes certainly helped his reputation a lot.
“It really went a long way in repairing my reputation,” said Rollins.”I had gotten so much flack online for some injuries that had happened in matches that I was in and whether they were caused by me, directly or indirectly, is a whole different can of worms. I think people were like ‘oh maybe he does know how to take care of people in the ring’. Yeah, duh. But yeah, I think it was more visually jarring than anything.”
