WWE Superstar Seth Rollins broke his silence on the mass release of superstars by the company. Speaking on his Instagram live video, Rollins said that he couldn't find the words to express how he is feeling. In what was one of the darkest period in WWE history, the wrestling company released around 20 employees at one go, amidst the coronavirus outbreak. Wrestlers like Rusev, Kurt Angle, Drake Maverick and Zack Ryder were fired as a measure to help compensate for the financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The heartbroken Superstar, however, found the negativity coming towards WWE really upsetting. He said that this isn't the time to point fingers but to rally together and help each other out. Rollins called for compassion, empathy, understanding, and support from everyone in these testing times. He encouraged everyone to unify and lift each other, which means supporting their favorite performers, companies, friends and family.
Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT tweeted on how Rollins' was being taken to task for the comments he made during the Instagram Live stream. Rollins responded and acknowledged that it was a sad day full of contemplation and that desire to unify and rally behind the business."Thanks Alex. I very much understand where all the anger and frustration is stemming from and that's okay. This is an emotional day for all of us and some folks need to vent. For me, it's been a lot of sadness and contemplation and a desire to unify and rally behind an industry I love," Rollins wrote.
