Seth Rollins Drops A Scathing Attack On His Controversial Hell In A Cell Match With Bray Wyatt

Seth Rollins Drops A Scathing Attack On His Controversial Hell In A Cell Match With Bray Wyatt

The former Shield star clashed with 'The Fiend' at the Hell in a Cell PPV in October for the WWE Universal Championship.

And it was met with widespread backlash from fans after Rollins nailed his downed opponent, who was covered with weapons, with a sledgehammer and the referee called for the bell to stop the match.

During an appearance on Tuesday's episode of WWE backstage, Rollins blamed the red lighting as a major problem with their Hell in a Cell match.

"So, that was a mess for me," he said. "Because, first of all, you're in this dark red.

"The cell is also red and so you're trying to navigate around the edges of the cell and it's very tight quarters to begin with.

"It was a mess.

"It was very difficult to deal with, especially not knowing what was going to happen.

"I, for one, am not a fan [of the red light]. I think it affects my performance personally."

The match was contested under Hell in a Cell rules and fans were astonished when the referee called for the bell.

WWE official Rod Zapata, who was in charge of the match, even released a statement after the clash to explain why the decision was made.

"With Bray motionless and Seth clearly doing whatever it was going to take to win that match... I had to think of the competitor's safety and at that moment I did what I thought was best," reads the statement.

WWE commentator Corey Graves has also admitted that he is not a fan of the red lighting used for Wyatt's matches.

"Everything that Bray Wyatt has been doing is awesome, it's definitely a bright spot in WWE, whether it be on Raw or SmackDown," he said on WWE's After the Bell podcast last month.

"But I can say that I am not looking forward to any more of that damn red light during 'The Fiend' matches.

"I'm not going to get on another rant because I already wasted enough breath on the top of the show, but let's hope Bray Wyatt defends the title.

"I could totally use some Firefly Fun House music, and some puppets, and lights during a WWE main event."

Rollins dropped the Universal Championship to 'The Fiend' in October after their Falls Count Anywhere match at Crown Jewel.
