Seth Rollins recently spoke to E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness about his career in WWE. He turned heel on The Shield, then won the Money In The Bank, but plans for him cashing in were not there.
Rollins said he pitched an idea to John Cena about cashing in the Money In The Bank briefcase during the WrestleMania main event match of Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns. Cena wasn’t against the idea.
However, once fans started to turn on Roman Reigns and openly booed him, Rollins then said this was a great reason for him to cash in his briefcase in the main event.
“The crowd were doing what they were doing with Roman and I just saw this — felt this thing, this energy. I saw it coming. I knew they were gonna kinda take a dump on him when he won the Rumble and they did and I remember the next day and again having the conversation with Hunter again because I had pitched the idea near the end of the year before.”
“I just wanted to remind him that I had his idea on the table and I think it’s a pretty good one. Even if it’s not the idea it could easily be a contingency plan if the main event of WrestleMania doesn’t go together how you see it. So even in the back of your head… yeah I pitched the idea and I strongly felt like it was a good one and I felt like I was the guy and again I went up to them and said ‘I want the ball,’ you know?”
Rollins’ plan worked out and it became one of the most memorable cash ins in all of WWE history.
